"A debate with no right or wrong answer that must be uncomplicated enough to discuss after three beers"

First available in the Barguments book ($9.95, Simon Spotlight Entertainment) Barguments now come to you in convenient electronic form. (Note to iPhone/iPod Touch users: Unlike the book form, we do NOT recommend using the Barguments app as a coaster.)

Barguments have become something of a media sensation, with raves from the New York Post, Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun and humorist Dave Barry, who called Barguments "better than a DNA test" at identifying gender.

Before you start, you should know Barguments follow three simple rules:

1. The answer to a Bargument cannot be proven right or wrong.

2. A Bargument can't be a buzz kill. So no arguing over politics, global affairs or moral dilemmas that bring everybody down (Would you kill a stranger to cure cancer?). However, feel free to debate pretend wars between dogs and monkeys.

3. No Bargument should be too complicated to debate after three beers. (Please don't bargue and drive.)

This application contains nearly 200 new Barguments you won't find in the book. Just click Next or shake your phone (careful if you've passed the three-beer zone!) to have the next one appear on the screen.

For some of our most divisive Barguments, we've included the Happy Hour Poll feature. Click and find out how America answered. Don't hold it against the country if they're wrong.

Don't be shy about sharing, either. Some of the best barguing occurs in a barroom full of strangers. You'd be amazed how quickly a crowd divides over weighty questions about sex, junk food, and the Dukes of Hazzard.

Enjoy, and remember to submit your own Barguments through the app. We'll post them on the website and let America vote. It's really the only way to find out if you're right or wrong.

-- Doug Hanks, creator, Barguments.

Loved the book and this app is every bit as good. It has some great questions that are sure to start fights and world wars. Good functionality in the app and I like that I can submit my own Bargument. I haven't gotten through all the questions yet, but here are a few to give you an example of what you'll find. --True or false: 40 is too old for Facebook. --Who wins a fight between Larry King and Bob Barker? --True or false: muscular women look sexy. --Which Spears sister is the better mother?


Awesome way to stir coversation at a bar. Huge fan.


Yup pretty dope
