Hey folks, me and THE had a little game. Each of us would name an article title to the other player, and then have one hour to write a basically complete article. I just thought you might be interested in the results:

Why?:Are there voices coming from the closet?/contest, title from me, written by THE and

Why?:Hit yourself on the head with a baseball bat seven or eight times/contest, title from THE, written by me.

(Also see Pee review, voices and Pee review, baseball bat).

The rules of the game are Here and here. I just want some feedback and, ya know, suggestions, general discussion, that kinda stuff. Or, if you are like what I've seen from the village dump in the past, you could call us both gay. Think about it. That's pretty intriguing, isn't it?   Le Cejak <-> (Dec 23 / 23:15)

Why don't the two of you just come out of The Closet already? Oh, and I still like the idea, but not the hour time limit. This weird thing loosely dubbed "real life" interrupts my being on here for a guaranteed solid hour.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  formspring) 23:17 Dec 23, 2007
Yeah....get a room already.... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Sorry I try to only write quality articles. That usually means it takes more than an hour to write them. I am not into Fast Food Humor that is guaranteed to be written in an hour or less, I am more of a Cultured Chef who takes his time to write quality articles. If an article is written in an hour or less, that is sort of a good way to tell if it needs ICU or VFD or Rewrite on it. Writing an article in under an hour in the way these two articles got written, resembles Random Humor if you ask my opinion. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 00:00, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
I wrote the vast majority of HowTo:Start a Religion in a couple hours, and that got featured. Contestant buzzer Contestant CUN -- VFH NotM Buzz Ctrbs 01:38, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Please note that it took more than one hour to write the majority of the article, which was my point in the first place. Oddly enough I haven't had an article of my own featured yet, but time will tell, time will tell. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 01:55, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
uh, hello? It was... FUN.   Le Cejak <-> (Dec 24 / 02:11)
It seems... FUN. The problem is, per Dr. Skullthumper, I won't be able to spend a solid hour on Uncyclopedia. Even if I plan ahead, my internet might go down--Æ 02:15, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Fun yes, but not funny until you do more work to take the "Under Construction" tags off of the articles. I admit they have potential to be funny and maybe it was fun to write them and play your little game. Only I don't write funny articles for fun, I write them to make people laugh and feel better about themselves and forget about their problems for at least 15 seconds. It is all about helping people out for the good of humanity. I don't write jokes for my own benefit, but the benefit of others. Still if I find enough time in my busy schedule I might decide to play your game and take an hour and try to write one of those articles and see what happens. But not right now, as I got a busy schedule and can only spend less than 15 minutes at a time on the Internet, inbetween things I do for family members and friends in real life. I got a wife and son that depend on me a lot, and from time to time I take a 15 minute break to get on the Internet and write something funny, but then I get constantly interrupted with real life issues and it takes a while to get back to the Internet and finish what I tried to write before so it is funnier. --Lt.

Maybe it'd be better if they confined it to their userspaces.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  formspring) 03:39 Dec 24, 2007
lol, the database got locked during the contest, and we still came up with two solid articles (in my opinion)   Le Cejak <-> (Dec 24 / 02:22)
For the record, I loved Why?:Hit yourself on the head with a baseball bat seven or eight times. This woule be a great VFH piece once you finish--Æ 02:43, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
