Trope Co (TSX: TROPE) is a mega-conglomerate specialising in surplus goods for discerning villains, Applied Phlebotinum, and quick narrative devices for harried writers.

And, therefore, it is safe to conclude that without parody infomercials, TV Tropes would be just like it. You can thank us, and help us on our mission, by re-writing unrelated tropes as if you were selling them. Don’t forget to use gratuitous exclamation marks whenever making product claims! We love that in advertising.
