English term or phrase: takeoff
In a takeoff on the TEARS acronym, endorser selection is described here as the “no-tears” approach. Compared with the prior usage of TEARS, which was merely an acronym combining the first letter of five endorser attributes, the current lowercase usage is applied in the real sense of the word tears.

neutral  Ben Kohn: I know the question is already closed. But I think "paródia" (Em uma paródia de...) would be more accurate, as takeoff usually means a humourous imitation.
