This strikes me as not a quibble and not noteworthy in itself. Goldfritha 01:37, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
I think it can be well worth while to describe the inversion of a trope along with the trope itself. I think the example I gave was a nice example of inverting the quibble and should go back in. Does anbody have any input? (The section in question is reproduced below).
I also feel that the article is any case a somewhat random list of examples, that may need editing. I may be somewhat biased but I don't seee that an Iain Banks example is any less noteworthy than a Piers Anthony example.
Iain Banks cleverly inverts the quibble in Excession in the following way -We are greatly outnumbered -I will not surrender -Well I'm going to surrender -But x swore you would obey us -And I have, within reason -But x didn't say anthing about 'within reason' -Well I think one always just takes that sort of proviso for granted, anyway I have transmitted the request for surrender.

- It's not an example of a quibble. Why include it? Goldfritha 00:37, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Like TV Tropes
This article needs a picture of a quibble. I do not know what quibbles look like.
