Swallowing a Tofuda

Good and bad luck come to you on and off throughout your day.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
So let's say you want to get on a carnival ride. When you get to the front of the ride, the operator says they have enough people. He then start the ride and you're like "aw man." Then the ride finishes and you get on.

The Trope Namer is a legend found in Touhou fan fics.

    This might be Unluckily Lucky?

    What...what is this. Is this a trope? I don't see a trope here. Or understand the trope name.

    We do not label tropes according to fandom trivia anymore. Especially obscure stuff like...Touhou fanfics. And again, I think whatever you're gunning for, we have it already.

    Sorry for being outta topic, but Unluckily Lucky should be titled Luckily Unlucky since it is about ppl who escapes unlucky situations regularly, while I've though or another trope about someone who's regularly lucky, only for those luck to go away fast.

    Thinking about it again... it might just be Yank The Dogs Chain. :P

    What the hell is this trope? Someone who has to wait to get on carnival rides and then gets the front seat? Is that common enough to trope?

    And what does it have to do swallowing stuff?

    The OP wrote the Description as if it were an example, i.e. Example As A Thesis.

    This is an excellent example of why Example As A Thesis is bad.

    And yes, Swallowing A Tofuda is a Bad Trope Namer.
