I Thought You Wanted To Be Rid Of Him

Pros:
  • Fairly clear.
  • Cannot be construed to include anything not included in the trope

  • Hints at the historical reference.

Cons:
  • Long
  • Implies the trope is about getting rid of people — possibly by killing the when that's not necessarily part of the trope.

Cons:
0 (yeas:24 nays:24)
Mistaken For An Order

Pro:
  • Fits part of many examples of the trope: something someone says is mistaken for an order, even if they did not mean it as such.
Con:
  • Far broader than the actual trope is, which will invite misuse.
  • Doesn't indicate misfortune resulting from question.
  • Excludes significant part of the current trope: the rhetorical question needn't be mistaken for an order, and often isn't.
  • Loses color and cleverness of the historical reference.

  • Doesn't indicate rhetorical nature
  • Doesn't indicate misfortune resulting of question
