Coined by Robert M. Price in "The Case Against The Case For Christ", derived from The Wizard of Oz.

Arguing for the truth of a controversial, often religiously significant claim by presupposing the truth of some other equally controversial claim.
"This is why, if apologists like William Lane Craig can get an opponent as far as admitting that Joseph of Arimathea probably did have Jesus interred in his own tomb, and if the women did probably visit the tomb, and that the tomb was probably found to be empty, he can press on to the conclusion that Bingo! Jesus must have risen from the dead! What they somehow do not see is that to argue thus is like arguing that the Emerald City of Oz must actually exist since, otherwise, where would the Yellow Brick Road lead?" -The Case Against The Case For Christ (p.209)

"The disciples clearly didn't hallucinate Jesus after the crucifixion since he allowed Thomas to poke his wounds and he shared bread with them. Simultaneous hallucinations involving multiple sensory modalities just don't happen."
"Yeah, that's just yellow brick road apologetics."

Refers to where someone noisily pretends to regret an action --- such as turning off a light, splashing water, etc. --- which caused someone else momentary shock and/or outrage, when in reality said prankster was completely intentional in performing said minor atrocity, and has gotten a huge giggle out of the hilarious-to-him distressed reaction of his "victim"!
Dude #1: flips the ceiling-light off in an otherwise-darkened garage where he is fully aware that his buddy is working
Dude #2: indignantly: Yo!!
Dude #1 in a classic "apologetic guffaw" tone "Huh-hoh --- saww-rreee" gives a big grin as he flips the switch back on again.
