There is no need to preach to the converted. Obvious points do not need your time, energy and PowerPoint slides. If you have to spend 1 slide, do it almost as a place holder, and add a bit of humor if you can to "pooh pooh" the cliche point you are just making. Next slide! I often use the above image for this using Addletters that allows you to put in any text you want.
