Clichés are clichés for a reason: the Cliché Development Committee has convened at its annual convention and, after a new expression or idea has been brought up by a licensed nominator, voted with a two-thirds majority (or overridden a veto by the president of the CDC with a three-fourths majority) to designate it as an official cliché, regardless of whatever grains of truth it does or does not contain.
