* RawEggsMakeYouStronger: Cooked eggs have pretty much the same nutritional value than raw ones, which are a salmonella hazard. Any modern use of this trope either [[PlayedForLaughs plays it for laughs]] by having the character spit them out, or subverts it (i.e. [[WesternAnimation/HeyArnold by making it look like the character is going to drink raw eggs, only for them to pour them into a hot pan and cook them]]).

* ImagineTheAudienceNaked: This doesn't work. [[http://blog.jvf.com/2009/01/24/public-speaking-myths-imagining-your-audience-in-their-underwear-makes-you-less-nervous/ As editorials and blog posts have explained]], even if the public speaker is capable of such a feat under such a high-stress situation, it has a very high likelihood of backfiring because of how needlessly distracting it is. There are many ways of calming your nerves during a public speech, but this is assuredly not one of them. If a work uses this trope at all anymore, it will parody the concept, usually by making the audience actually naked with the speaker thinking it's working.

* NewYearsResolutios: It's commonly accepted that most people can't keep their resolutions - [[http://www.businessinsider.com/new-years-resolutions-courses-2016-12 oftentimes giving up as early as February]] -and thus they're taken as empty promises, at best. Even in fiction, [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption they're always going to end in failure]].

* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: [[TruthInTelevision While there]] ''[[TruthInTelevision are]]'' [[TruthInTelevision Asians who speak in broken English]], broken English is no longer treated as comedy anymore unless the author ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice wants]]'' [[CrossesTheLineTwice to come off as offensive]], has the Asian equivalent of NWordPrivileges, or satirically in adult cartoons. ValuesDissonance has also helped this trope died out, with Asians appearing more in works outside of cheap gags.

* AsianSpeekeeEngrish has been one for decades due to ValuesDissonance over racism. There ''are'' Asians who have broken English, very much TruthInTelevision, but it's not treated as comedy anymore unless the author ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice wants]]'' [[CrossesTheLineTwice to come off as offensive]] (or has the Asian equivalent of NWordPrivileges).
