BATHOS

Bathos.
Defined as the unintentional, self-mocking humour which results when someone means to be serious but is actually being foolish in doing so. Many authors would sacrifice their first born to get bathos into their novels.

Real Life Example 1:
A Muslim protester exercising his right to freedom of speech on the street and waving a placard which stated in very large letters
FREEDOM OF SPEECH GO TO HELL!

Real Life Example 2:
Close by our amusing protester we find another Muslim placard being brandished which states in letters just as large and imposing
BEHEAD THOSE WHO SAY THAT ISLAM IS VIOLENT!

My own feeble attempt to imitate these splendid illustrations is as follows
I REALLY HATE PEOPLE WHO GET EMOTIONAL.

I BELIEVE THAT ALL BELIEFS ARE FALSE.
