Playing With: Gag Boobs
Double Entendre not intended.
Basic Trope: (Often) Large breasts, used for comedy.
  • Straight:
    • Alice has huge breasts, and as a result is usually made fun of for this and serves as the butt of many breast-related jokes.
    • Alice has to be careful when she turns around, lest she knock over a lamp or short, unaware people.
  • Exaggerated: Alice has huge breasts, and when and if she can stand is basically a laughingstock among her friends.
  • Downplayed: Alice is really only slightly better-endowed than average, but it's become a Running Gag among her friends to make fun of them.
  • Justified: Alice is a standup comedian who uses her big breasts as part of her routine.
  • Inverted: Alice is the only girl with a flat chest on a show where everyone else has huge breasts. She's becomes the butt of many flat chest jokes.
  • Subverted: Alice has huge basketball shaped breasts and nobody ever mentions this.
  • Double Subverted: ...which becomes a Running Gag in its own right, until one character finally can't help it any longer.
  • Parodied:
    • Alice has average-sized breasts, but is the only girl in the work who isn't flat as a board; as a result, her boobs are joked about by the other girls.
  • Zig Zagged: Alice has enormous basketball shaped breasts and gets made fun of for it, so she gets a breast reduction...but the loss of her boobs makes her an A-cup and now everyone makes fun of her for being flat. She gets breast implants and returns to her original shape and size.
  • Averted: Breast size is simply never discussed.
  • Enforced:
    • "There's no way the audience would be able to take a character with that kind of bust seriously, make sure to include a lot of breasts joke in the dialogue"
    • Alice is played by Pamela Stevenson. It's practically in her contract.
  • Lampshaded: Bob: "Now stand straight, chests out..." *Alice pushes up her boobs* Bob: "Not that far out."
  • Invoked: Alice got enhancement surgery because she felt she needed something to draw people's attention.
  • Exploited: See Justified #1.
  • Defied: "If you want to keep all your teeth, don't mention my tits."
  • Discussed: "Every time I see her trying to button her shirt I feel like I should make a joke."
  • Conversed: "Alice, with boobs like that, you'd fit right in in some perverted anime show!"
  • Deconstructed: Alice desperately wants to be taken seriously but can't because of her large breasts.
  • Reconstructed: Alice has huge breasts and is the butt of many breasts related jokes from her peers. Most of the jokes are made in good fun, and Alice even joins in on occasion.
