Motivational Speech- ReDONK!

For Tuesday:
We have adequately drilled down on the rhetorical formula for battle speeches.  So let's try making our own... with an ironic twist.  Here are your potential audiences:
  • Eating Contest (Ghost chili)
  • Scrapbooking conference
  • Pokemon tournament 
  • Toddler tee-ball
  • Shuffleboard match in retirement home (Emily R h/t)
  • Connect 4 (Jake W h/t)
  • Some other ironic situation.
Your first step is to brainstorm your audience's unique needs and consider the various metaphors and word choice (diction) that will activate their emotions.  

  1. Pull exclusively from our list of appeals. 
  2. Consider which rhetorical devices from previous speeches will best fit this particular audience.
  3. Word Count-350- Roughly "Gettsburgh"
  4. Make me laugh

Unless you want to live in a van down by the river... Classic SNL skit!
