Protrope

Protrope (pro-tro’-pe): A call to action, often by using threats or promises.

We’re all hungry and want something to eat! I say we have burgers!

If you don’t agree, I won’t pay for dinner.

So, off we go to McDonalds!

Dear Mr. Putin,

If you value your favorite “My Little Pony,” you better move those troops out of Ukraine! We have kidnapped and are holding your Fantastic Flutters Princess Twilight Sparkle Pony hostage! When she burns, she “will melt and stink.” Is that what you want?

Bring those troops back to Russia by midnight MSK, or else!

Yours truly,

YOU KNOW WHO!
