Sometimes humor comes from explaining a commonly explained concept from a slightly different perspective. It always helps if there’s a smoking cat involved. But yes, people love pathos, empathy, bathos, and catharsis. One of their favorite topics.
AMANDA: I represent pathos, a reflection of your sorrow.
MEGAN: I represent empathy, understanding for the sadness in you.
MITTENS: I represent bathos. I'm a cat smoking.
KLOWNUS: This represents catharsis. For me, at least.
