Playing With: Cheek Copy
Basic Trope: A character photocopies his/her bare buttocks.
  • Straight: Bob sits on the copy machine at work and makes a copy or two of his bare butt.
  • Exaggerated: Bob photocopies every part of his body.
  • Downplayed:
    • Bob leaves his underpants on while copying his butt.
    • Bob copies his hand or foot instead, to be less rude.
  • Justified:
    • Bob is bored and/or mischievous.
    • Bob wants to tease his coworkers and/or boss.
    • It's the office Christmas party and Bob is drunk
  • Inverted: Bob makes a photocopy of his face.
  • Subverted:
    • Bob doesn't copy his buttocks.
    • Bob is using the scanner, not the photocopier.
  • Double Subverted:
    • He copies his testicles.
    • He scans his buttocks, then sends the picture as an email attachment to the office.
  • Parodied:
    • Within weeks, the entire world is plastered with the numerous photocopies of Bob's buns.
    • The photocopy is seen by a fashion designer who thinks he'd be a great underwear model and sets out to find him.
    • Bob is caught red handed by his boss, and panics. The boss, however, then tells Bob to move it, lowers his pants and starts photocopying his behind.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Bob doesn't copy his butt at all.
  • Enforced: Rule of Funny in a Work Com.
  • Lampshaded: "Because of Bob's unprofessional and gross misuse of our office copier, we will be installing cameras in the copy room to monitor behavior."
  • Invoked: Bob is tempted to copy his buttocks after the Pointy-Haired Boss yells at him.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Bob knows that he could be fired justifiably for this, and since he has a wife and kids to feed, resists the temptation to do this or tell off PHB.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed:
    • Bob's butt crushes the glass and electrocutes himself when he does this.
    • Bob gets fired for unprofessional conduct and/or gross misuse of office supplies.
  • Reconstructed: Bob sits on the copier very carefully and anonymously.
