A New Meme Is Born.

"Houghton Woozle Fallacy" or "Idiot's Woozle"

“As one works towards the resolution of a primary Woozle the probability of another person defending the primary Woozle by use of a secondary Woozle approaches 1, resulting in an “Idiot’s Woozle”,

The”Houghton Woozle Fallacy” is named after “Beverly Houghton” who coined the term “Woozle Effect“, November 1979, whilst presenting a paper  “”Review of research on women abuse.”” at the  annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology, Philadelphia.

Sources confirming Houghton as the person coining the term “Woozle Effect” are;
