    I notice long-nose had the last word, and it is the dog that terminated the argument by not responding.

    (Also, ‘rebuttal’ is the noun form, ‘rebut’ is the verb form.
    The bad grammar makes long-nose seem a bit ignorant)

    The guy in the cartoon is notoriously lazy and ignorant and his incorrect use of the words ‘buttal’ and ‘rebuttal’ is clearly deliberate by the cartoonist as part of the joke.

    It is true that there are plenty of people out there who seem to believe that if they get the last word, that means they won the argument. Nothing you can do about that sort. Just make your point (if you feel like getting into it at all) and then move on.

    Once you’ve made your argument and repeated it 41 more times, there is nothing to gain by repeating one more time.

    Other than the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything ?

    @ Deepak Shetty

    Once, plus 41 reps = ?.

    Hats off for catching the reference.
