The phrase is often open to great interpretation and variation. Its three distinct-yet-related nouns allow for a variety of setups and gags related to TheTriple and dependent on the RuleOfThree. Frequently, the last item of the phrase is changed to something completely different and irrelevant to mystery for RuleOfFunny, and the exact order of what's wrapped and inside what varies with almost every separate occasion the phrase is evoked. Sometimes, one of the three parts may be dropped for gags and line deliveries that require a faster pacing; conversely, additional clauses can be added for greater [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggeration]].
