Really, really clever!

Philosopher Stephen Hicks has an hysterical, clever post over at his blog.  It's a logical fallacy contest, and most of the "entrants" are very funny.  My favorite is the Begging the Question/Circular Reasoning fallacy entry:
Begging The Question:
Circular reasoning is the best fallacy and is capable of proving anything.
Since it can prove anything, it can obviously prove the above statement.
Since it can prove the first statement, it must be true.
Therefore, circular reasoning is the best fallacy and is capable of proving anything.
See them all, here.
