I see examples of leading questions, from ignorance, appeal to popularity, hasty generalization, fallacy of exclusion and...false dichotomy.
I'm afraid I don't know half of those.
But if you don't think my explanation for why it's amusing is logically sound, that's fine. I'm just trying (and apparently failing) at explaining why it's amusing. Of course I don't think something has to have a truly logically sound basis for it to be amusing.
