NOTE TO SELF: If it’s obvious, it’s obvious — no need to belabor its alleged obviousness.

I guess he caught himself prefacing some obvious statement with “Obviously,…”. In this same category I would place “world famous”.  If something actually has fame worldwide, does that need special highlighting?  More often than not, I’ve never heard of the world famous thing I’m encountering.
