* [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Jack Chick]], in one of his "[[SoBadItsGood works]]" called [[http://www.chick.com/reading/comics/0112/albertoindex.asp Alberto]] found it necessary to fill the thing with [[StopHelpingMe helpful]] definitions of complex words, like "deacon", and "sacraments" and "Dominicans". And "deny", "documents", and "intense". And "stone". He seriously found it necessary to tell us all what a stone is. It turns out it's actually subverted, however: he fails to [[CriticalResearchFailure define stone correctly]].
