** Madam Pomfrey seems to know not to ask. In all her years at Hogwarts, she probably has seen a fair share of students with injuries that are the result of things students shouldn't be doing. Just looks at Ron's dragon bite, and there's no way that she bought Ron's story that a dog bit him. Also, given her status as a healer, it's very likely she knew Hermione had a mishap with Polyjuice Potion. There might be a good reason for this. If these students were reluctant to go to Madam Pomfrey for fear that their rule-breaking would be found out, they would be likely to leave their injuries untreated. Could also be a case of [[YouDontWantToKnow I Don't Want To Know.]]

-->'''Luna''': (''regarding her father'') He's always saying he'd believe anything of Fudge; I mean, the number of goblins Fudge has had assassinated! And of course he uses the Department of Mysteries to develop terrible poisons, which he secretly feeds to anybody who disagrees with him. And then there's his Umgubular Slashkilter

* In ''Webcomic/BramAndVlad'', there is [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5496042/ a strip with this title]] about Vlad (literally) hanging on the ceiling of Bram's house, holding Bram's math notebook. No context is provided or asked. [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5472592/ In another strip]], while this trope is not mentioned verbatim, it is silently implied by Bram when Bessie asks about the Van Helsings' eye jar. Which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a jar full of eyes]].

* 1. As a response to "How was your day?". Used this way, it implies that it's been a very bad day indeed.
* 2. As a response to "How did ''that'' happen?". Used this way, it implies ItsALongStory.
* 3. As a response to "How do ''you'' know that?". used this way, it implies a more detailed answer would provide TooMuchInformation.
