A [[WikiTropes Wiki Trope]] about that lesser dreaded malady of the Wiki: page quote overdose. On occasions, a brief and snappy {{Epigraph}} at the header of the page can far more easily capture the gist of a trope than the descriptive text below it. And maybe another quote can serve to give a different angle on the trope. But then someone else just happens to find this ''really bonzer'' new quote that is positively sidesplitting, and, rather than be so bold as to slice out a previous quote, they just append it to the rest of them.

This is another case of Too Much Of A Good Thing, and an instance where the WikiMagic gets a bit out of control, ''[[{{Fantasia}} Sorcerer's Apprentice]]''-style. It gets even worse when they leave out the indent markup ([=-->=]), leaving the text normal-sized and indistinguishable from the body. That is usually fixed, though, but people don't always catch it.
