The crowner still seems to be changing. Should we have it closed, or just continue the renames?
I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.

Okay, the top three not already done are the bear, shark, and kangaroo ones. The bear one has over 1,200 wicks, and the shark one has over 600. Those might take their own threads to fix. I'll do the kangaroo one and then see what else I can help rename.

EDIT: Did the Kangaroo one. Working on the spoon and lava ones.

EDIT EDIT: Done with both. Now everything other than the shark and bear ones are under the 2:00 ratio.

So do we have to remane all of these? The Monkey one can stay, it's the Trope Namer and it's been around forever.
If a chicken had lips, could it whistle?
Yes, we should rename all of them.

I don't know what you mean by Everthings Better With Monkeys being the "Trope Namer." You mean the original trope that birthed the snowclone? The alpha werewolf responsible for this mess? Then it deserves to die most of all!

Time for name brainstorming.

I'm warming a little to Dragon's "Garnishing" idea. But for heaven's sake, let's not put the word "better" in there. People will pothole to it whenever they think anything is good.

I prefer Garnishing the Story over Story Garnish as the former describes a process and not the thing, so hopefully will get longer examples.

Our dear PM contributor has created a sandbox page for Garnishing the Story.

I think this should move to Special Efforts, like the Grand And Unified Appearance Trope Cleanup.

Ok, I think that this sandbox is supposed to be plugged into Garnishing the Story and then Everything's Better With Indexes redirected to it?

OK. Given that the crowner down there has a clear rename consensus and a previous crowner decided to rename and redefine the page and that nobody in 1.5 months objected, I did the rename.

We'll have to find an index for Garnishing the Story, a rewrite for Everything's Worse With Snowclones, and continue the rename of the snowclones.

About the only one on the list I can't really think of a decent name for is Everything's Better with Chickens, whose meaning amounts to "chickens are inherently funny." Maybe make that the trope name? Or would that run into No New Stock Phrases?

What would be the best way to fix the page?
