MacKinnon’s Word for the Day: Ratiocinate

Ratiocinate: go through logical processes, reason, esp. using syllogisms.

Now watch closely, children, as I ratiocinate…

All penguins can swim.
Some people can swim; therefore some people are penguins.

I thank you. Please ratiocinate at will in the comments box provided. Just clean up after yourself, OK?
