I was trying to remember if this is bathos or pathos.

I've googled, wikkied and dictionary.commed and I am none the wiser.

What am I thinking of?

Ahhhh, of course! Thank you! Thought I was going potty when it was neither, but I remembered wrongly.

Explained this to DS the other day, when he thought it was funny that it was pissing down with rain when all the toys turned up at Sunnyside in Toy Story 3.
