edit This category is a spoiler

Articles in this category are funny because you don't expect that they look like the things they're about, so they should be categorized another way. For instance, the Things related to Kevin Bacon category is not spoiling an article but this category is. This category should be emptied and removed. Ftiercel (talk) 19:22, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

But the spoiler is only visible at the end of the article, so I don't mind. For authors who really don't get the joke (and I caught one at FORTRAN who didn't seem to grasp that "and" was always spelled ".and."), the category at the foot of the page is useful. In contrast, we have a template that screams, at the start of the page, what the joke is, and I believe that it, along with every other template designed to help the reader enjoy a page that can't get the job done itself, should be deleted.

What Spike said. The categories are supposed to be navigation tools, not wise-cracks. This category does not ruin the joke, because it appears as a footnote to the article. --Mn-z 20:25, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
