It's been a while and no more comments so I am going to start editing the page with an eye to removing natter. Probably going to have to cut a lot out. It's my intention to leave as much as possible of the actual substance of the article.
This at the least seems like it can stay as a Useful Notes page but I wonder if there is possibility for a split between the Useful Notes page and a list wherein the trope is used as a trope, as characterization in fictional works. Said trope page would have to have some kind of note directing Real Life
examples to the Useful Notes page—but that's getting ahead of ourselves.
EDIT: For now, I am going to leave in bona fide examples of this trope being used in-universe in fiction for humor or storytelling. For example, there's a legit in-universe example where Spike riffs on "randy" in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
. Should a decision be made to split off the trope page and the Useful Notes page in some way, those might be transferred.
