A character, usually a [[SchoolTeachers School Teacher]], makes a comment or asks a question, prompting others to raise their hands. Someone (usually the original speaker) changes the question (" but ''without'' using your computer?") or adds a comment ("No, the answer isn't "cheese"), which causes the hands to go down, implying that the hand-raisers' next statements were very predictable. Usually PlayedForLaughs.

* When ComicBook/WonderWoman was holding a conference to promote her book ''Reflections'', one guy in the audience asked if she had a boyfriend at the moment. She said she didn't, a bunch of hands went up, and she added that she didn't have a girlfriend either, and wasn't looking for one. The last comment is what makes all the hands go down.
