A red herring is something that misleads or distracts from a relevant or important question. It may be either a logical fallacy or a literary device that leads readers or audiences toward a false conclusion. A red herring may be used intentionally, as in mystery fiction or as part of rhetorical strategies, or may be used in argumentation inadvertently.

Your parent asks you "where did all your money go" and you say "I spent 12 hours at school and I am hungry"
Your boyfriend/girlfrined sees you texting someone in a type of way and asks "whos this", and you say "I've been bored lately'i just need a little entertainment"
A group of your friends are arguing and you come out of no where and says "We have good weather today"
