"The Droste effect is a specific kind of recursive picture, one that in heraldry is termed mise en abyme. An image exhibiting the Droste effect depicts a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar picture would realistically be expected to appear. This smaller version then depicts an even smaller version of itself in the same place, and so on. Only in theory could this go on forever; practically, it continues only as long as the resolution of the picture allows, which is relatively short, since each iteration exponentially reduces the picture's size. It is a visual example of a strange loop, a self-referential system of instancing."
"The slang term “one trick pony” is used to suggest a lack of flexibility and an inability to work outside very specific parameters. For example, a chef who can only produce only one really good dish is a one trick pony. The origin of the phrase goes back to the days of traveling circuses. Small circuses with no major acts and no menagerie of exotic animals were derided as being dog and pony shows, since those were the major performers. To further denigrate the show, detractors would say that it had a one trick pony. Most people try to avoid creating or becoming a one trick pony for this very reason."
