“It is a cliché that most cliches are true, but then like most clichés,
that cliché is untrue.”
– Stephen Fry
Now what is a cliché?
Wikipedia defines a cliche as an expression, idea, or element of an artistic work which has become overused to the point of losing its original meaning or effect,
even to the point of being trite or irritating, especially when at some earlier time it was considered meaningful or novel.
An old example is “a woman’s place is in the kitchen”.
This may have been the case in the past but does its still apply today?
That cliché is most likely an untrue cliché!
Do you know of any cliché which has lost its relevance as a cliché with the passage of time?
