Logical Fallacy

January 26, 2007

My old high school is holding a fundraising gala in April.  Nevermind that they are rolling in enough money as it is (to quote the former headmaster – the school’s colors are green and gold – the color of money), and that I think the idea of a gala is slightly ridiculous. 

Nevermind that Don Henley (yes, that Don Henley) is co-chairing the event, or that local newscaster Scott Murray is acting as Master of Ceremonies. 

Nevermind that CHICAGO will be playing.

What I found most amusing about this approaching gala was the following:

Dinner will be served at 7:15 followed by a live auction that promises to offer "experiences and items that money cannot buy".

Wha? 

Tell me, how is it possible to auction (that is, to sell to the person who bids the highest price) "experiences and items that money cannot buy"? 

Their very presence in an auction proves that yes, in fact, money can buy them.

    Kicking the singer of Chicago in the face. Money could buy that.
