Seriously, an elaborate joke created Just For Fun. Imagine my disappointment when I realized that I couldn't actually order some of the items here...

Insane Troll Logic Kit should be on here.

I could imagine it...

Haha, Trope Co. is listed on the TSX (Toronto Stock Exchange) even though it's 90% probable the majority of Tropers are American? Also, I'm preeeeeeetty sure most market exchanges use ticker symbols of less than five characters.

Good show, gentlemen, good show.

I have this horrible temptation, which I am resisting for reasons of taste, to pothole "it is safe to conclude" to Insane Troll Logic.

They might also be Blatant Lies, if that's an acceptable substitute. ;)

I see I'm not the only one.

Well, there's a relief.

To elaborate: Most of Trope Co. is a joke without a punchline. Parody commercials have a place, but that place isnít in most of the articles listed. Writing Brain Bleach as an ad is kind of like writing I Know Kung-Fu from the perspective of a caveman. Itís completely arbitrary.

When using parody narration, the narration itself should link to the topic at hand. Writing out advertisement tropes as advertisements makes sense, as does using gangsta music to rap about how White and Nerdy you are; In each case, the narrative device itself is part of the joke. Geddit?

Writing out random tropes as infomercials is just cheesy. And not in a So Bad, It's Good B-Movie kind of way, but in a desperate please-let-us-be-funny kind of way.

This Troper proposes a general re-write of Trope Co. tropes and quite possibly the dismantling of the Trope Co. corporate empire. For Great Justice.

I don't see the point of dismantling it. Some of us think it's funny, and those who don't don't have to read it.

The point is to make improvements to the articles. You could argue "You don't have to read it" to any low-quality, unfunny post, but it'd still be nice to exchange this low-quality shit for some better shit.

It's like if Trope Co. were bananas. Rotten, lame bananas that were all black and disgusting from thinking they were funny. Instead of letting them stink up the place, let's turn them into delicious banana bread.

I certainly don't think we should dismantle it. Improvements are of course never unwelcome, but removing it just because some people don't think it's funny is completely unnecessary.

Also, I see the point in writing them all as fake ads. It's as though TV Tropes is a catalogue of plot elements for writers. Sure, not all of them are written with that context in mind, but it still works. Its for the tropes as tropes, not as each in their individual context.
