Sudden Raised Hand Reversal
All raised hands go down when it made clear a certain subject won\'t be talked about.
Do We Have This? Bob is teaching a class and asks, "Does anyone have a question?" All of the students raise their hands. Dreading the real reason for this, Bob adds, "Does anyone have a question that is not related to how my date went?" Almost all the students lower their hands in disappointment. This trope is usually done for comedy.
