Does this even need examples? Serious Business is way WAY too general.

Bloody cripes the amount of real life examples is getting crazy. I know Serious Business is what it is, but I reckon people are getting a bit silly, just putting any random thing they want and act like its a matter of life and death (whether they do so in all seriousness or to take the mickey out of it)

That and some of the natter and all that

I feel as though a better name for this trope would be Children's Card Game. Thoughts?

Nope. Serious Business sounds more like what the trope's about. Children's Card Game sounds like it's about a Trading Card Lame.

Yes, Childrens Card Game is frankly nonsense as a name for this trope.

Lebron James saying he`s joining the Miami Heat is Serious Business

Cleveland Cavalier fans was angry Thursday night. They were burning jerseys, crying, throwing stones at a lebron james mural.

ESPN also aired a Lebron James Special called The Decision on Thrusday night

I think some tropers exaggerated how "overplayed" Michael Jackson's death was in the media. I don't remember it being more overreported-upon than that of Princess Di, and besides, it's a legitimate news story. While I'm on the subject, it's obvious that he thought the rail on the balcony was a table for a second and wasn't trying to "dangle" Blanket. Finally, why is it covered under "real life," when it could go under "music?"

So, why the image change? I thought the original Fauxtivational Poster was much much funnier than the same image as just a picture and a caption.

The new image definitely isn't good, but I don't know what the other was.
