Every day, people make conclusions based on the given information, and the information and the conclusion could be interpreted wrong!

Sometimes, the conclusions are hilarious!

This is called a formal fallacy or a Non-Sequitor.

Typically, a formal fallacy is an error in the argument used.

For example, take a look at the picture above. If you try to reach a destination solely based on the information provided, you may get lost. Particularly, if you are searching for Chouffe — as there are several options — unless you know what or where Chouffe is! Which is quite tasty, if I may add, or it could be far or near. And, if you drink one, or go to every one at every stop, you will definetely get lost.

Did I lose anyone?

But since I am pragmatic, let me give you an actual example.
