If someone says, "I know you are but what am I" - Is that a tu quoque fallacy?

What kind of fallacy is it when you lie about the size of your fallacy?

Is there a fallacy for responding to an argument with a punch? I suppose it could be called The Marine Fallacy.

A Christian talk show host once told me that she saw God every time she looked into the face of a child. How, she wondered, could I not recognize this? I responded that when I look into the face of a puppy, I see Cerberus, the three-headed dog who guards the gates of Hades. Her response to that was beautiful. She said, "That's stupid."

We both employed the same fallacy, albeit mine came laced with irony.

What's that one called?

That would be special pleading as well, I think.
