The “Chewbacca Defense” from South Park

From an episode of South Park (season 2, episode 14 “Chef Aid”), the Chewbacca defense is a funny example of a non sequitur reasoning fallacy in which someone employs an argument whose conclusion does not logically follow from its reasons. In particular, this is a red herring  fallacy. Check out the link below. There is an ad first and there is some foul language but a funny clip.
