* I just realize something about DarthWiki/DarthWiki, it fit to Vader/Anakin character. Darth Wiki is place part to have fun in and Vader is one of the coolest characters, but Darth Wiki is also a place for whining and Anakin (however this troper disagrees the following) was full of wangst in eyes of many fans.

* When Wiki/TVTropes switched the default search device to Google I was annoyed considering how inaccurate Google can be. And there were all the reasons to consider (less wear on the server, spelling is less of a big deal, etc.) but none of them really sold me on it. Then I realized something: During Archive/TheGreatCrash what was [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup the main type of backup]] we had? Google caches.

* I just recently got the {{Everyone is Jesus in Purgatory}} title, for the longest time I was reading it as "If you're in purgatory then you're jesus." Then I got that it was making fun of people reading to far into things, ultimately leading to them saying, "Everyone is Jesus, also they're in Purgatory."

* When you read the trope DeadHorseGenre, you come to the realisation that: a.) practically anything and everything that ever got a lick of success anywhere in the world gets to be a DHG; b.) a lot of the styles mentioned as a DHG were competing against each other in the same pop culture space, and maybe were even ''concieved'' as an antidote or antithesis to another popular style; c.) if they were popular once, [[PopularityPolynomial they may well become popular again]] with at least ''somebody'', at least if given a new lease on life, and d.) becaue the styles did become [[HypeBacklash popular to the point of overkill]], HypeBacklash and a certain amount of Fan Dumb will always be a factor in the perception of those styles of music. The critics and tastemakers who declared them "dead" often ''were'' [[AscendedFan ascended fans]], after all, perhaps [[ItsPopularNowItSucks overreacting to a style's overexposure]], [[OpinionMyopia not neccessarily fans of the style (or fans of a different style) to begin with]], and/or [[SturgeonsLaw whining about the amount of below-average examples that inevitably rears its head as more and more people adopt that genre]].

--> Another good example, that's slightly less old, would be ''Anime/SailorMoon'' fans from the nighties gave way to pretty much the same reaction as we're getting now the whole "these guys are a pile of happy cigarettes" from the haters and a "it's the turning point of masculinity" from the fans side.

* I was writing an essay on {{Fandom}}s and social linking through them and was halfway down my paragraph about FanDumb, when it hit me: "FanDumb? FanDumb... Oh! ''{{Fandom}}!''" Then I proceeded to laugh myself stupid for not noticing the pun sooner.

* I was reading the page for OverlyLongGag and noticed as I went through the examples that the page image was showing up repeatedly ''inside'' the folders. It took me longer than I'm proud to admit to realize that this was ''not'' a technical glitch; rather, it was what makes the page a SelfDemonstratingArticle. Mainly I was impressed by the joke's sneakiness.

** Not only that, but try pronouncing the name from its country of origin, Japan. It was pronounced as "Aerisu". Since the letter "u" in Japan is silent, it can also be pronounced "Aeris". And since in Japan the letter "l" and "r" can mix, the name can also pe pronounced as "Aelis", or "Alice".

** Not only that, but try pronouncing the name from its country of origin, Japan. It was pronounced as "Aerisu". Since the letter "u" in Japan is silent, it can also be pronounced "Aeris". "Aeris", as it was in the translation of the original ''Final Fantasy VII''. And since in Japan the letter "l" and "r" can mix, the name can also pe be pronounced as "Aelis", or "Alice"."Alice".
** It goes further than that. "Aeris" would be more recognizable as a pun on "Alice", but the trope name spells it "Aerith" ''because the trope is about names that don't fit together being in the same work!'' The trope name is self-demonstrating!


* I just got the second meaning behind the trope title AerithAndBob. It's clear that it's meant to invoke the AliceAndBob page, but at first I thought it was just a random, but recognizable, odd fictional name. Then I remembered the long-standing (but ultimately false) rumor that [[FinalFantasyVII Aerith]]'s name was supposed to be "Alice," and the name makes even ''more'' sense.
