funny ask/discussion about startup commercial cliches

Does anyone remember what I think was an Ask thread about bad startup commercial cliches? Ukelele, whistling, hand clapping, etc.? If so, can you link it here? Many thanks!

In the Red corner

Damn, I really loathe the "lost their battle to cancer" cliche. This thread. So as to not derail the Joe Fraser thread even more, I thought this might be an appropriate place to sort this one out. Apologies if this is considered incorrect use of Meta. [more inside]

What are best practices for discovering hacks used by MeFites? Help me hive mind!!!

As a relative newbie, when did certain phrases become cliche on ask metafilter? Specifically I refer to "What are some best practices for x?", referring to aforementioned "best practices" as "hacks" and "help me hivemind!!!". I'm curious as I work in an environment where catchphrases and buzzwords are similarly bandied about.

It's lazy, it's snarky, it's the smug, knowing older brother of "meh," and half of you are getting it wrong. News at 11. [more inside]
