A turkey has an hypothesis: "Farmer John is a cool dude. He really loves me!"
Farmer John brings the turkey some nice grain. The turkey says, "See, this proves it!"
Next day, Farmer John brings the turkey more grain. Turkey says, "Even more proof!"
Next day, delicious grain. Turkey says, "His love for me is clearly an established fact!"
More than three hundred days go by as above. The turkey, who learned about the scientific method from a naturopath, says, "I was pretty sure he loved me after a few days of kindness. But now that I've enjoyed over three hundred days of tender care, I have so much more proof of his love."
The next morning, Thanksgiving.
Now, for ten internets, can you name poor Mr. Turkey's logical fallacy?
