Adoxography was a term coined in the late 19th century. It refers to highly skilled writing about trivial subjects.

In effect, it’s wasting great skills and ability on things that don’t matter. And yet the ancient Greeks, who were otherwise pretty smart people, would engage in Adoxography on purpose, spending hours in praise of things like gout, blindness, deafness, old age, flies, gnats, bedbugs, and smoke. They thought it was an important skill to learn, for some reason.
