Post An observation...
I've noticed something recently, that the more adjectives/adverbs that are required to describe a subject, the more laughable of an idea it is. This thought first came across a while back when I read a newspaper article about a fried food contest at a small county fair down in Oklahoma. The winner of the contest? Waffle Balls... but not just plain waffle balls... Let's add adjectives and other qualifying words to that.

Waffle Balls
Strawberry Waffle Balls
Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Waffle Balls
Fried Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Waffle Balls
Fried Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Waffle Balls on a Stick

That's four qualifiers describing waffle balls (five if you argue that waffle counts as a qualifier too).

So, has anyone ever noticed anything like this? I mean things of the has-too-many-adjectives nature, not things of the food-that-probably-gives-you-digestion-problems nature.

Redundant silly amusing Cipher topics in a forum? That's four qualifiers too! Five, if you count Cipher!
But I kid. I can't say I've seen that often, but generally I've noticed that too-many-adjectives syndrome is very dangerous, and potentially lethal.

Really, if you put anything on a stick it becomes funnier.

For example, compare "dead baby" with "dead baby on a stick."
