Babies can't manage crocodiles.ReplyDelete
If illogical people are despised (c), and babies are illogical (a), then babies are despised. If you are despised, then you cannot manage a crocodile because if you could both manage a croc and be despised, you'd be contradicting (b). Ergo babies can't manage crocs.ReplyDelete
