An interesting link I found that gives several examples of concept "cliche's." If this has already been posted, I apologize.

Oh, thank you Crystal! That looks very amusing indeed...I'm going to file it right next to the classic "Light Bulb" joke about forums in my bookmarks list, and then hunker down and read it before I start coding for the day!

That's a nice way to treat the gaming system that made RPG's popular. How postmodern of them.

obviously the writers have never killed puppies for satan.  ahh, the utter joy that springs through my soul just saying that.  satan, sad to say, can't afford uppercase letters.

I like this one:
