Funny Persuasive Speech Topics for College?

Question by Bagelz: Funny persuasive speech topics for college?
I have to give a persuasive speech, and I want to do something funny and out there without being controversial or crude. I have looked at various websites & am not just finding the right thing.
I have been thinking along the lines of “Why you should tell her if her butt looks fat in those jeans” and “why you should believe its not butter” or something like that.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
