A "stub" is an overly-short or incomplete article that needs to be expanded before it can truly be called a definitive treatment of its subject matter. Stubs are one of the many banes of Uncyclopedia's existence. So, why not learn how to create one?
edit Step 1
Come up with a great page name. The name you choose should be catchy and witty; a play on words that leaves the reader wanting to read more, while inducing at least a chuckle just by itself.
edit Step 2
Come up with about two legitimate (or semi-legitimate) sub-headings. The sub-headings don't have to be anything special, but they should build on the clever title of the article and should show what direction the article is heading (or would head, if the lazy author would just sit down and finish it).
edit Step 3
Write a sentence or two under each sub-heading. These need be even less legitimate than the sub-headings themselves, but they still cannot be pure nonsense. They should, along with the sub-headings, elicit one more laugh from the reader.
edit Step 4 (Optional)
Add a picture. One - no more, no less.
edit Step 5
Add the stub label at the bottom of the "article" you have created and wait for more industrious, comedic and talented cyberspace authors to come and breathe real life into your work. P.S. - This won't happen.
