* I was reading the page for OverlyLongGag and noticed as I went through the examples that the page image was showing up repeatedly ''inside'' the folders. It took me longer than I'm proud to admit to realize that this was ''not'' a technical glitch; rather, it was what makes the page a SelfDemonstratingArticle. Mainly I was impressed by the joke's sneakiness.

* On the page for ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'', someone changed ChekhovsGun to Chekhov's Walkie-Talkie. This is a reference to the special edition where the guns were changed to walkie-talkies.

walkie-talkies. [[note]]This would normally have been a casualty of the policy change banning potholed trope names, but it was retained as part of a note.[[/note]]

** Not only that, but try pronouncing the name from its country of origin, Japan. It was pronounced as "Aerisu". Since the letter "u" in Japan is silent, it can also be pronounced "Aeris". And since in Japan the letter "l" and "r" can mix, the name can also pe pronounced as "Aelis", or "Alice".

** It goes further than that. "Aeris" would be more recognizable as a pun on "Alice", but the trope name spells it "Aerith" ''because the trope is about names that don't fit together being in the same work!'' The trope name is self-demonstrating!

* I just got the second meaning behind the trope title AerithAndBob. It's clear that it's meant to invoke the AliceAndBob page, but at first I thought it was just a random, but recognizable, odd fictional name. Then I remembered the long-standing (but ultimately false) rumor that [[FinalFantasyVII Aerith]]'s name was supposed to be "Alice," and the name makes even ''more'' sense.

--> Another good example, that's slightly less old, would be SailorMoon fans from the nighties gave way to pretty much the same reaction as we're getting now the whole "these guys are a pile of happy cigarettes" from the haters and a "it's the turning point of masculinity" from the fans side.

** At first, that makes no sense, "a happy pile of cigarettes" who calls anyone that? Well, if you go by the correct definitions of many slang terms, "gay, faggot, fag," gay means happy, faggot usually means a pile of sticks but can technically mean a pile of anything, and fag means cigarette, so what's really being said is, "faggot gay fag," which is what bronies get called a lot of the time. Whoever that editor is, s/he's a genius.

* At first, I didn't get the rationale behind InUniverseExamplesOnly, thinking that the only cases where that would apply would be works about a ShowWithinAShow which would severely limit the examples. I also wondered if these pages would ever even be proposed as tropes for storytelling as opposed to audience reactions, and thought it was just a cheap way to basically cut a page without cutting it by [[InNameOnly totally redefining it to something different than its original intent]]. Then I actually read some of the pages that were subjected to this treatment and discovered that not only are there a ''lot'' of ShowWithinAShow examples of things such as AdaptationDecay, but that there are a lot of other ways for audience reactions to be reflected in-universe. Maybe the characters just have the same reaction as the audience probably has to a situation, or maybe the show has NoFourthWall and directly comments on its own storytelling techniques. So making a page have InUniverseExamplesOnly doesn't cripple it nearly as much as I thought.
