Dicionário Cenofóbico: ONE TRICK PONEY

"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."
