Snowclone: Upper Class Wit get usage counts

That is at least related to the trope, unlike "entrepreneur". Don't take my silence on it as a tacit endorsement, though. So you were kidding, then?

Anyway, back on topic, can we agree on taking a vote for "Merge Upper-Class Wit into Gentleman Snarker", or is there any other action anyone would like to happen?

Still just awesome like that
Yes, I was.

And I agree with taking a vote on that. The only other options I can think of is making the trope definitions more clear or changing the definition of one or the other entirely.

Insert witty and clever quip here.

New handle, same name.

Okay, so...I don't know how to make a crowner, so is anyone willing to make a Single Prop for what was proposed?

Calling crowner in favor of merging into Gentleman Snarker (+8; yeas 11, nays 3; both other options firmly in the red)

Then we're onto step 5; carrying out the decision.

I think that means this trope is added to TRS Wick Cleaning, and this thread needs a Final Action button.

Locking it up, then. Thanks.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Page Action: Upper Class Wit
15th Jan '14 6:35:06 PM
What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Upper Class Wit is defined as an Intelligent Upperclass Twit. An Upperclass Twit is defined as a type of Idle Rich.

Gentleman Snarker also exists and covers the same basic demonstration of intelligence (Witty rejoinders), and is not Idle-rich specific.

39 total examples from the page itself. 24 counts of Idle Rich, assuming ZCE as correct use. That's 15/39 misuse, or 38% misuse for Non Idle Rich on the trope page.
