One point where she uses humor is at the bottom of page 305 where Peacocke writes about how taking Family Guy at face value is like taking Jonathan Swift 's "Modest Proposal" seriously. Another point where Peacocke uses humor is at the top of page 300 where she talks about how she is fascinated with the show and how her perfect high school match would be Stewie Griffin.

During the early 1700s, Ireland experienced economic and social turmoil— unemployment was high, Ireland was experiencing a social class war, and lower class families struggled to obtain food. Renowned author, Jonathan Swift, sarcastically proposes that the country set a quota of 100,000 children to be set aside as a food supply. Swift’s over exaggerated proposal is a subliminal message to the Irish Government that has done nothing to mend the factious and fractured social classes and economy of their country. Throughout “A Modest Proposal,” Swift theorizes a process analysis of the system and social conventions that would be established if Ireland were actually to resort to cannibalism. In his sarcasm, Swift uses many instances of over exaggeration, similes, and parables to convey his obscured message about government reformation.
Pathos would not be the most adequate for "Hello". Pathos is focused on emotions, however, "hello" does not reach most to emotions. It may be seen as a respectful act to some individuals.

Here, Swift wants the reader to question the proposal and to see the cruelty of eating the babies of the poor in Ireland.
A Modest Proposal was written in the early 1700’s and about the starving people of Ireland, by Jonathan Swift. Not only were the people who were ruling the country awful, there were people who were starving, and the gap between the rich and the poor was immense. He uses brutal satire and irony to express his irritation with the countries lack there of ideas on how to solve the problems afflicting it.

When arguing for racial equality, James Farmer Jr. quotes St.Augustine, “An unjust law is no law at all.” He claims that just laws are meant to protect all citizens; whereas, unjust laws that discriminate Negroes are not laws to be followed, thus raising awareness of racial discrimination by using emotional and logical appeals. In The Great Debaters, Henry Lowe appeals to the audience’s emotions during a debate about Negro integration into state universities. To challenge his opponent’s claim that the South isn 't ready to integrate Negroes into universities, he affirms that if change wasn’t forcefully brought upon the South, Negroes would “still be in chains,” which is an allusion to slavery. With this point, he is able to raise awareness of

Invitational rhetoric is non-traditional where it will be explained, how it’s used, and how invitational rhetoric is being used in action. Traditional rhetoric is not the same as Invitational rhetoric.
