* The whole "FAIL" meme revolves around unnecessarily stamping the word "FAIL" onto a picture of something that is obviously hilariously stupid.
* Many computers will inform you "You just plugged a device into the audio jack", as though this is something you're likely to do without noticing.

** "Five hats means that five tropers think it is ready to publish.". At least partially obvious.
** Also, this very page is about a trope which highlights easily discovered events that are pointed out to the audience, as if they had no clue what was going on. This trope is called "CaptainObvious" and it's on the website you're currently on called TVTropes (the url address is http://tvtropes.org/). On a side note, TV Tropes is a webpage which features articles about multiple tropes seen throughout many forms of media, such as literature, live-action T.V. shows, anime/manga, video games, comic books, and in several cases, even ''real life''!
** Any disambiguation page that says it's [[ShapedLikeItself a disambiguation page]].

* Scott Goodyear, a former Indy car driver turned commentator for the Indycar Series for races on ABC. I told my dad he is so obvious and my dad didn't believe me. After some time my dad told me after he though about it he realized that Scott Goodyear is obvious. Needless to say it has become a running joke for us that anytime someone says something obvious we say that "Scott Goodyear has started doing x".
This list shows the last 10 events of 28. Show all.
