In all seriousness, the above humor highlights the absurd extreme some people go to to justify obviously poor thinking. I often get challenges on my blog in the form of many of the above “whataboutisms.” These comments are mostly exceptions to norms being offered up as new rules applicable to all. This “attempt” at reasoning fails on multiple levels, but mostly because they are red herrings meant to distract from the real issues discussed. So, please look out for those pesky “whataboutism” salesmen. Don’t fall for their tricky tactics.
