From comments on an Athletic article regarding the Blackhawks rebuilding plans:

While it’s not fun to watch, there has to be genuinely a more positive way of spinning this then the damn mellow dramatics.
But is it a WOB under the most stringent interpretation? You could be mellowly dramatic, rather than engaging in histrionics, so would it be appropriately nonsensical? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malapropism With that being said, I am not a stickler and think that is a WOB, and a funny one at that.

I think it does fit the criteria as while it sort of/kind of makes sense as a standalone, the person who wrote it is clearly meaning to use the term "melodramatic"

I liked the "picky back" WoB I sent you the other day too. This one though is pretty brilliant.
