Apodioxis

Apodioxis (ap-o-di-ox’-is): Rejecting of someone or something (such as the adversary’s argument) as being impertinent, needless, absurd, false, or wicked.

What? You say you need to have a tattoo of a USB cable done on your right butt cheek to balance out the tattoo on your left butt cheek?  Come on, don’t be absurd!

Maybe you need to “balance out” how you think about tattoos! I still don’t know why you have a MAC-Book tattooed on your left butt cheek! As far as I’m concerned, the only thing that will balance out the MAC-Book would be its removal, and I’m willing to pay for it!
