“My show ain’t no Dr. Phil, where people sit around crying, ‘What’s wrong with me, Dr. Phil? What’s wrong with me, Dr. Phil?’ ” Mr. T said.When I'm teaching my debaters about the Appeal to Authority and its abuses, I set it up like this:
“You are a fool! That’s what’s wrong with you. ... My show is the Dr. Phil on wheels.”
“I ain’t no shrink,” Mr. T said, “but I don’t shrink from no challenge, neither.”
Claim: I need to get real.Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mr. T, for the chance to make my example even more memorable.
Evidence: Dr. Phil told me to.
Warrant: Dr. Phil knows what's best for me.
(Backing: After all, he has his own TV show.)
