A snowclone is a neologism for a type of cliché and phrasal template originally defined as "a multi-use, customizable, instantly recognizable, time-worn, quoted or misquoted phrase or sentence that can be used in an entirely open array of different variants". [ 1 ] An example of a snowclone is " grey is the new black ", a version of the template "X is the new Y". X and Y may be replaced with different words or phrases – for example, "comedy is the new rock 'n' roll". [ 2 ] The term "snowclone" can be applied to both the original phrase and to any new phrase that uses its formula. Many Internet memes are snowclones: for example, the meme "obvious troll is obvious" actually originated as "fun toys are fun" and has been generalized to many other statements of the form "X Y is X". A snowclone conveys information by using a familiar verbal formula and the cultural knowledge of the audience.
