Yes, I have a problem with people not checking whether any evidence supports the story they're selling me. Email Legends (from Teapot Lady) also covers this pet peeve. Why am I so peevish? I blame the aliens.

Lyrics

Prove Me Wrong

My friend Eddy is an alchemist
Who tries to make pure gold
Out of giant garbage cans
Filled with dirt and leaves and mold.
I asked what proof he had this worked
When Isaac Newton failed so long
He said "Well, you’ll just have to prove me wrong!"

Prove me wrong
Yes prove me wrong
That's all I have to say
Cause my position’s not too strong
You might think I'd have some facts to help my argument along
But I don't
So you'll just have to prove me wrong.

My neighbor Nan
Gets extremely ill
From power lines and electric fields.
She wears a rubber suit to get her mail.
And if you question her beliefs
She shrieks “This is a real disease”
And you better not ask for proof
Or she’s just gonna yell

Prove me wrong
Yes prove me wrong
That's all I have to say
Cause my position’s not too strong
You might think I'd have some facts to help my argument along
But I don't
So you'll just have to prove me wrong.

Bridge:

And when somebody tells me
They can cure my every ill
With electromagnetic waves
Or homeopathic pills
I always wonder why
None of my doctors will agree
But I guess it’s cause they’re mixed up
In a medical conspiracy


Cause Jeffrey is a vampire
And Greta can read palms
My pal Laurel married an alien
(She says he’s a terrible slob)
And I can double your money instantly
If you invest in my internet company
Don’t ask me to back that up cause that’s your job.

Yeah
Prove me wrong
Yes prove me wrong
That's all I have to say
Cause my position’s not too strong
You might think I'd have some facts to help my argument along
But I don't C7
So you'll just have to prove me wrong.
