Think debates must always revolve around the ‘serious’? Think again. Try some funny debate topics in your next class and see how much fun ensues.
Debates – arranging pros and cons of a topic, serious discussions and heated arguments, points put forth and points taken to the end. That’s the general picture we have of a debate, correct? Now when you bring funny debate topics into the scene and re-think the whole situation, doesn’t that put you completely out of the norm? Cause what you’re planning to do with the expected is suddenly taken away? How does one go about discussing funny debate topics? Don’t debates essentially have a serious theme running?
Not necessarily. Think of a not-so-serious topic, something of a lighter vein that goes ‘Did the chicken come before the egg?’. A topic like this one would definitely not lead to serious discussions. But the very core of a debate would still need to be brought out. Why you say what you say and what are the arguments that are leading to this conclusion – all that would need to be discussed as well. So while it would be discussed in all its seriousness, there would still be a funny theme running throughout.
