Alright, folks, I'll come clean... it was I, Jakovu, that made the self-demonstrating category names. But, before you start throwing full wine bottles at your computer screen (that's about the 10th Homestar Runner reference I've made somewhere in the past week), let me explain myself. I thought that this article would work for that kind of thing, but now that I think about it, most of the ones I came up with were terrible. So if we do keep them, they need to be cleaned up. A LOT.

I really like the idea, but to my mind it needs a bit of work. I'll start off by putting the real name just inside every folder. I may also change a couple of them, possibly only making one word self-demonstrating.

One of the most hilarious articles on TV tropes. Love the self-demonstrating category names, don't listen to the humourless trolls above.

I simultaneously love and hate this article so much. Still, it made me giggle. I proudly, yet angrily, nominate the author for a Made Of Win.

There's a surprising lack of Coen brothers' films mentioned here.

Does anyone mind if we get rid of the self-demonstrating category names? I can't even tell what half of these are supposed to be. Naming the music category "Cusack"? And theatre is "butter"? And what's "Lady Flop James"?

This goes way past "cute" and into "Fucking annoying".

Yes. This is NOT a good idea. It isn't even funny.
