It is so named because it is like attacking a straw man.
It’s a logical fallacy that involves deliberately misrepresenting someone else’s viewpoint, as Nate does to Principal Nichols here.
I’m referring to a prior strip in this series.
I don’t even want to know how that’s inappropriate.
You probably don’t want to know.
But orcas are dolphins XD
YOU WILL NEVER KNOW
’Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
Oh, a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make.
Oh, snap. Now 2020 is even getting to Pig.
