The Devil's Dictionary:    

Definition of Rope

  ROPE   noun
An obsolescent appliance for reminding assassins that they too are mortal.  It is put about the neck and remains in place one's whole life long.  It has been largely superseded by a more complex electrical device worn upon another part of the person; and this is rapidly giving place to an apparatus known as the preachment.
