Like ParrotExposition, but the expositor can't even finish the word. [[ViewersAreMorons Even if it is easy to remember]]. Also used when someone says a big word, like [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology Palaeo-whatisit]]. Sometimes used out of spite, and sometimes used out of disbelief. Often used in {{Advertising}}. SisterTrope to {{Gesundheit}}, where the speaker finds the word so unpronounceable he thinks it must have been a sneeze. A common silly subtrope involves the expositer successfully repeating each ''part'' of a word, but still somehow unable to say the whole thing together:

** The "Synchro what?" line was also used in the actual English dub of the movie. And later, in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phTcXmOqJy8 scripted duel]] during the 2014 World Championships of the [[TabletopGame/YuGiOh card game]], he said "Xyz what?" in response to an Xyz Summon.

Somewhere A Palaeontologist Is Crying is now Artistic License Paleontology. Bad examples and ZCE are being removed.
Like ParrotExposition, but the expositor can't even finish the word. [[ViewersAreMorons Even if it is easy to remember]]. Also used when someone says a big word, like [[SomewhereAPalaeontologistIsCrying Palaeo-whatisit]]. Sometimes used out of spite, and sometimes used out of disbelief. Often used in {{Advertising}}. SisterTrope to {{Gesundheit}}, where the speaker finds the word so unpronounceable he thinks it must have been a sneeze. A common silly subtrope involves the expositer successfully repeating each ''part'' of a word, but still somehow unable to say the whole thing together:
