->''"A '''Ghost Head''' is a type of '''Cybernetic Allen Key''' which a '''Fake Thomas Jefferson''' uses to '''Impeach The Goddamn President'''. Used mostly when a writer is '''Combing His Hair''' or '''Speaking Fluent Cat''', although if a character is '''Shirtless And Hungry''' it can be used to give them a '''Fire Island Swirlie'''. See also '''The Alien Is Not An Alien''' and '''Germany Fits In My Pocket'''."''
-->-- '''Website/SomethingAwful forums''', on [=TVTropes's effects on language=][[note]]Please note that none of these are actually tropes. They could be, though, one day... they definitely could be... Maybe they're from an AlternateUniverse version of Wiki/TVTropes?[[/note]]

Or [[SugarWiki/TvTropesWillEnhanceYourLife enrich it]], depending on your point of view.

[[JustForFun/YouKnowYouReadTooMuchTVTropesWhen It seems to be not at all unusual]] for a {{troper}} to begin [[ConversationalTroping speaking tropinese]] in real-life situations that do not involve discussion of entertainment. This is apparently another way that TVTropesWillRuinYourLife.
[[FromBadToWorse It gets worse]] for tropers whose native language isn't English. They unawarely insert tropes into their conversations and the receiving side usually not only simply have no idea what that phrase ''means'', but can't understand what you just said AT ALL. And you can't just send them a link to explain - they don't understand English, remember?

The most evident symptom of this is the word "trope" itself, which is not commonly used outside of this site -- it's only the [[http://wordcount.org/main.php 67,470th]] most frequent English word. That's behind [[BathroomStallOfOverheardInsults "privies"]] but ahead of [[NiceHat "milliners"]], just for reference. Then again, many foreign languages do not even have a translation for the word 'tropes'.

At this rate, we're going to end up fitting in on [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration the Tamarian homeworld]].[[note]]Darmok and Jalad, at Tanagra.[[/note]]

You may even realize [[note]]on the way to the fridge[[/note]] [[FridgeHorror that you have already started doing this without realizing]].

This, when combined with a tendency to apply SquarePegRoundTrope, is why some artists aware of us aren't exactly fond of the site. On the other hand, many artists are [[OneOfUs Tropers themselves]], and a number of our linguistic travesties are borrowed from industry jargon.
