well sometimes you just have to choose outright bathos don't you?
Comment and analysis? I'm Still Ill.
Bamos or Pamos?
It's the new Big Breakfast quiz where the contestants must judge from a silhouette whether the person behind the screen is Bamos or celebrity fatter Pam Ferris.
i've always wondered, just not enough to get a dictionary
I think. I can't remember what pathos is.
greek people wash in.
bathos n. (in literature) an unintentional change in mood from the important or serious to the trivial or ridiculous.
[although I'd query the use of "unintentional"]
pathos n. a quality that evokes pity or suffering.
they're not actually opposites or anything then, are they.
within the world of the literature rather than from the writer's perspective?
unintetionally humerous over the top-ness.
Bad definition, sorry.
