For the York Daily Record. I gonna want a creative title for it. Figured I might as well come here and get some thoughts. Che 15px-SBQ3.JPG } 02:12,3August,2010

Well, for starters,

it's the worst. Beyond that, I have no clue.

Uncyclopedia: Satire site or just a place to insult your teacher who made you read Huck Finn?

Did I ever tell you that I've spoken to the real Mr. Winkler? Nice guy. Funny. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 02:22, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

You have mentioned that. Quite a few times.

Also, the title might have to be a bit shorter. And it probably shouldn't say things like "retarded." Che 15px-SBQ3.JPG } 02:33,3August,2010

I wonder if they'd let me print "dicks lol" at the end of the article. It would be in the true spirit of Uncyc after all. Che 15px-SBQ3.JPG } 16:45,3August,2010

Content free?

Even though that's part of our "official"?? description, it sure doesn't fit the Uncy I know. Almost every page has great information in it, and some pages have lots and lots of historical and factural data. The best description I've heard of uncy is Funnybony's, who says it's a playground for adults. A playground I am very surprised that more people don't use. So "An internet playground for kids and adults alike" may be in the vicinity of a good title. Aleister 2:49 3 8

Actually, something like "The 'content-free encyclopedia' is an unfit title" might work. Maybe. I don't know. Che 15px-SBQ3.JPG } 03:03,3August,2010

School computers block wikipedia? No need to fear!

Not just an American Site

Compared to say The Onion, Uncyclopedia does appear to me a lot more internationalist with its range of contributors from the Americas, Europe and Australasia - and even includes a rock veteran from the 1960s based in Thailand (Funnybony from The Misunderstood). That may be an interesting line to add to the article! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 08:07, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Uncyclopedia: Pornography site or just a dick to jack off your teacher who made you read Hustler Magazine?

Write something about how Uncyclopedia would like to express its support for the two remaining defendants in the Mother's Day 2009 killing of 9-year-old Ciara "CeCe" Savage. Maybe also something about how we believe Pennsylvania is the gayest of all the states, or about how it was retarded to name a city after York when we already had a New York. Also, tell them I want some of those free kickboxing lessons at the Lutheran Church, because that just sounds fucking awesome. Ninjas for Jesus!!

What happens when odd people gather on a wiki because they've got too much free time?

I think we all know that Uncyclopedia is the answer to that question. Antiquarians from Estonia recently replaced fructose with Uncyclopedia as the number two thing they'd rather not do without.

Use Waterford crystal only when annunciating your presence in an elevator or vestibule.

How about...

Something along the lines of "The best thing ever". Or "The world's largest online group of the world's most awesome people in the world", equally: "The world's largest online group of the world's most douchey people in the world". Whatever works. - [13:54 4 August 2010] TheYetTalk

I prefer "A close-knit online community of inmates with time on their hands, reason not to be out in General Population, and internet access". Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:13, August 4, 2010 (UTC)
Surely a prerequisite of an online community is that all members have internet access? - [14:58 4 August 2010] TheYetTalk

This has to be the best quote about Uncyclopedia.

I think about it every time someone asks/mentions some trivial topic:

"I tend to use Uncyclopedia as my first point of call whenever I need information on any subject these days. It means I'm almost always wrong, but leads to some really fun conversations. :-) Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 16:17, March 2, 2010 (UTC)"

So how about

The UNbelievable online resource you can't do without.

Can you put

{{USERNAME}} in a newspaper article? You could keep it simple and just have <insert name here> sucks balls. That's a classic. - [11:24 5 August 2010] TheYetTalk

No, I don't believe you can. At least, not in most countries. Che 15px-SBQ3.JPG } 15:30,5August,2010
I bet you can in Japan. You can do everything in Japan. - [16:47 5 August 2010] TheYetTalk

Seriously though...

How about an amalgamation of "content free" and "open content". So Open Content Free. Or something. :) Or how about something that makes us sound kind of edgy? The Website The CIA Wants To Close Down? Or There's More To Europods Than Meets The Eye. Alternatively, how about the simple but effective: Benson's House of Pancakes. Or The Anti-Plagirism Site. Wikipedia's Younger, Fatter, Spottier, Unhealthier and More Retarded Little Brother. - [16:51 5 August 2010] TheYetTalk

I, too, deserve my own headline
