Is it just me or is Noel Coward basically discount Oscar Wilde? It pretty much says so on his page anyway, but it seems to me that if someone is annoyed at overuse of Wilde in quotes, Coward is easily swapped.—Sigphoto|(get dtf) 20:46, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

Free Dildos for Inmates?

Me, I think that Reaganite CNBC-TV economist Larry Kudlow (left (for once)) should be quoted liberally before he goes into complete retirement.

Oscar Wilde has not become unfunny, just very, very overused; also winks to newbies that, if you can't be funny, you can get instant Comedy Points for dropping the name of Oscar Wilde; and if you can't spell Oscar Wilde, you can get instant Comedy Points for just writing, "He's gay!!!" Overuse of Noel Coward, if it occurred, would have the problem of overuse; and use of Noel Coward without a good comedy point could still be meme-cruft. But, like Romartus, I say be italic. There is no way to know whether it would be funny without trying it and seeing how it rubs people other than yourself. Spıke Ѧ 18:09 13-Jun-14

As the chap who originally added the Noel Coward the idea was to replace the HUGE about of Oscar Wilde cruft with an amusing alternative. If other people have added to it, it may have become "crufty" but I'm quite happy with the levels of humour and the funny references contained in the "quotes" I personally added. I don't really think there is an overuse of Noel Coward, as yet, but it was originally intended as one of a number of alternatives to the Oscar Wilde epidemic. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
