Demotivator, kill it with fire: Popular Saying But get usage counts

Oh hey, two threads for this trope in five minutes? I guess I just have it in for this page.

Seriously though, pretty sure demotivators are by nature terrible images. That said, this is an entirely verbal trope, so I'm not sure how best to depict it. Any ideas?

Voting imageless.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

I see the Awesomeness.
Also voting imageless.
I'm also going to vote imageless. Forgot to say that when I pulled it.

Yeah, I think Imageless is the mopst likely outcome. At the very best, we might be able to find a decent comic book image with a word balloon, but I doubt that the picture would add information that the word balloon didn't.
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!

I don't think we currently have a practice for voting something imageless, unless a mod says "don't". Should we leave a note on the page saying we voted the trope "not picturable" and ask them to start an IP (I would rather not declare it inviolable) if they think they've got an image?
[up] I'd just treat it the same as any other image, except it's the absence of an image instead of an actual image. So, we'd need about the same consensus, and we'd put up pretty much the same tag on the page (a note saying that we decided to leave it imageless with a link to the thread and an instruction to come here if you have a suggestion for an image).

Also, are demotivators allowed on Image Links Wiki? I was thinking of sticking it up there.

[up][up]Yeah, that's what I'd suggest.

I think it's allowed on the Image Links Wiki, but don't quote me.

Yes, definitely tag the page regardless of what the IP thread's final decision is.

Bumpage...the consensus so far is to leave this one without a pic, which I'll agree with.

No further action is to be taken on the basis of this thread.

Locking for lack of action.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
