First there was X. Now there is another one of it
Introducing a sequel or further idea.
Example: "First there was Elite. Now there is another one of it."
Secret origin: Coined by Dave Green.
Note 1: Part Threes are introduced thus: "First there was Elite. Then there was another one of it. Now there is another one. Of that one" or, more rarely, "First there was Elite, then there was another one of it. Then there was another one of that one, and that one was Frontier 2."
Note 2: One of the official AP Five Hardy Jokes.
Note 3: An evolutionary form ("First there was Legend. And now there is Worlds of it") appeared in AP26.
(1) Illustrating an argument. (2) (When a sentence.) Exposing a stupid error.
Example 1: "It's a an old trick, as used in Bubble Bobble for example."
Example 2: "Instead of "up" to jump, you could perhaps have used one of the joypad's six buttons. For example."
Secret origin: Traditional.
Note: As AP's reviews concentrated on examples, rather than the "It is good because it is good" approach beloved of our crap rivals, we were dismayed to find that, practically, only "for example," "for instance" and "say" existed to introduce them. (Synonyms such as "As a case in point," for example, are too stuffy.)
See for example.
(1) The player's characters in Super Puyo Puyo and similar games. (2) Symbolic of inflicting defeat.
Example 1: "A level four chain reaction! Taste my foul eggs, you cur!"
Example 2: "I've won! Taste my foul eggs!"
Secret origin: Originally from "It tried to lay its foul eggs in my mouth!", a phrase Dave Green remains determined to include should he write a science-fiction film. The transition to referring to the game Super Puyo Puyo is obscure, but probably involves "Eugh, that's not egg!" coinciding with the release of the game, which naturally became known as Super Foul Egg, and its stablemate Doctor Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. "Taste my foul eggs you cur!" in relation to playing the game was first used by J Nash.*
Note: We were delighted to receive a splendid clone of Super Puyo Puyo for AP58's coverdisk, and insisted it was renamed Super Foul Egg.
