...What is this supposed to be? It reads like a work or trope that relies far too heavily on Self-Demonstrating Article. None of it is formatted properly, to boot.

This is what happens if you click "show all markup" in YKTTW and blindly paste that in. I'll see about fixing it.

This looks like Fish out of Temporal Water, but a slightly exaggerated YMMV version.

The troper launched this and two other tropes on the same day with few examples and poor explanations. IMO, this one definitely doesn't need to be a trope. The other two are Reversion To Stereotype and Gratutious Use Of The Tallit (note the typo in the name). If the Tallit one had more than two examples, I think it'd be a good trope. The other one seems to be about characterization. Either way, they both should go back to YKTTW and get more examples.

And a version that seems a little too focused on porn and sex. We've already got tropes for most of these, and better written as well.

I brought this up on ATT (keyword for search is mtlwriterguy) and lu said they all needed cutlisting; shall we go ahead and do that?
