Imbox style.png This page needs some cleaning up to be presentable.

This page is being converted into a generic Stock Phrase trope. The description needs to be less wiki-specific, and it needs non-wiki examples. Please provide them.


Be very sure you want to continue.

Don't tread lightly into Nightmare Fuel, after all ... once you start, it's difficult to stop, and then you look at the clock and realize it's time to go to bed... and that's to say nothing of Paranoia Fuel.

And beware of having suspense or surprise twists ruined as a result of becoming Spoilered Rotten, and nevar forget the danger of becoming lost in a tangled web of Internet memes...until you look at the clock and realize it's time to go to bed.

For that matter, take care on Darth Wiki as well; too much reading and you'll find everything to be "stale, flat, unprofitable" and over-quoted ...not to mention the unfortunate side effects that Darth Wiki produces, including nausea, mood swings, cynicism, Nietzschism, Hamletism, heart emancipation, wearing red letters, loss of mouth accompanied by Primal Scream compulsions, and Adaptation Decay.

But spending too much time on Sugar Wiki could result in equal cynicism, because surely everything can't be that wonderful... The Sugar Wiki as well has the side effects of nausea, mood swings, complacency, Small Name, Big Ego, tooth decay, involuntary Narnia adventures, Rock Lobster seizures, Ganymede Lobster attacks and mild rash. And then you look at the clock and realise it's time to get up and go to work.

Are you sure you want to go there? This page—no, this whole site has been known to ruin people's lives, their vocabulary, their spelling, their sense of time, their lives, their perception of reality, their lives, and short-term memory. And their lives. Proceed with caution.

You Have Been Warned.

Examples of You Have Been Warned include:
