How can I convince students of the truth value of if P is false then Pthat "P implies QQ" is true when P is false, independent of what truth value Q takes.?

Is there any real life or a convincing argument for this.?

I have given the analogy of if being elected then you will abolish the death penalty which seems ok but rather crass. Are there any other examples?
