what is a red herring?
A red herring is when you are talking and immediately change the subject to something else, or when you try to turns someones attention away for some reason. It's like when you say to your friend "Oh look, a bird!" and then steal a french fry from his or her plate. A herring is a fish, but there's no such thing as a red herring, so it's like saying "Oh look, a red herring!"
