Omission of Nigeria makes me a very sad man. --OneTopJob6 08:38, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Food Picture Edit

I found the plate of finished food with the caption "This is an african meal, without the abundance of food of course" to be much more witty than the empty picture now. Can someone bring it back?

10/10 Edit

dfgd That was awesome, “The trees have AIDS”. --FlareNUKE 06:14, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

I kind of agree. -- 17:20, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Egypt Edit

I think that most Americans believe it's in the middle east. I'm not sure how to work that in without ruining the section. --Eponymous Coward | talk | "contributions" | ban 23:18, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Egypt is in the middle east. --Kinst 23:28, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
I mean "middle east" as in over on the Sinai peninsula. It really does surprise a lot of people to learn it's sitting in Africa. (and looking at that mess that passes for an article on Wikipedia, it doesn't even agree with itself on what the mideast is!) --Eponymous Coward | talk | "contributions" | ban
Well, Middle East is not a continent. It's just the European conception of the area, because it's the nearest east (as opposed to Far East). Maybe people are confused because they think it's a continent?--Unissakävelijä 12:52, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Horrendous Racism Edit

Horrendous racism! Why is it so hilarious? This page is genius.

Careful Edit

I actually find it hilarious.. and i'm sure if Africans had pc's they'd chuckle too. -we do, you twat. and we don't find it funny

I only read this for a bit and I have to say its very offensive. Uncyclopedia has some very funny stuff, but this is horrible. Completely taking the piss out of some African peoples' misfortune isn't funny at all. Whoever wrote some of this should read the be funny and not stupid article.

Not to brag, but this article is featured, so I think it's safe to say that at least a few people find it funny. Now, the humor of the article comes out of its excessively morbid and pessimistic view; most Americans think that Africa is a hellhole of corruption, disease, and suffering, so the article takes that ignorant misconception and presents it as encyclopedic fact. Don't get me wrong, now; I know that Africa has more than its share of problems. But discussing these problems (albeit in a satirical light) helps the article; after all, all good comedy has a grain of truth at its core. Just keep in mind that the article doesn't mock the suffering of the African people, it mocks the problems that cause the suffering (religious extremism, corrupt governance, consequences of European colonialism, etc.) and our ignorant view of them.
I hope I explained the article well enough. It seems that people are always taking offence at my brand of humor (see Allah and Talk:Allah for an especially good example). --Jordanus 22:50, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
I guess you have. Its just, as a non American, I'm fully aware of Africa's problems, so maybe I didn't find it as funny. I am worried that some pages on here are simply childish and stupid and not really funny at all though.
You don't need to be American to appreciate this sort of humor. In fact when you're Euro, you can laugh at both the negligence+ignorance of an american AND the shitty state Africa is currently in. After all their ancestors had the chance to build an actual civilization but instead they opted zebrasex, while our ancestors were inventing stuff and exploring the world. Name me one African invention (besides the Ancient Egyptian stuff).. Blowpipes? And when the übertech Euros come in, they all go OH NOES TEH WHITE MEN ENSLAVED US!!1 like the noobs they are. Why are we supposed to feel sorry for em? The weak shall bow to the strong. That's the law of the nature. --Unissakävelijä 12:48, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Wow, Just Wow, First up Anti-American dude, go suck a shit, it wasn't the United States of America or UnAmerica that went over to Africa from 836 A.D - 1700 A.D in Crusades and plain old colonialism, essentially butt-raping an entire continent for close to 1000 year and cause problems that will affect the continent for the next couple of thousand years....Oh, and also, just before you go, "ve help the Afrikans now by putting clothe on zeir woman's boobies', The EU's protectionist trade policies block out African exporters the most and essentially make and made destitute countries even more shit with forced unfair trade.
Ohhhh and the Euro's can't laugh about us oh Unisaaveli, because no European power has ever defeated the United States, not once. However, they do have things to laud over, as do we, BUT, we can all get together and laugh at your ignorant stupid ass anytime of the week. --Sharz 07:05, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Consider that while Europe is a conglomerate of countless small, competitive landlocked states America is one massive land with a neutral/passive state on one side and a weak/impoverished one on the other. It's a lot easier to not get invaded.

Nigger please. Get the fuck out of here with this "WAH IT'S OFFENSIVE AND RACIST" shit.It's Uncyclopedia, it's not meant to be taken seriously. And in my opinion, they went too easy on this article. You're lucky I didn't write it. These comedic geniuses bash every European country, Mexico, China, and I think they even manage to insult our dear mother Earth. But you know what? LOL! Good stuff. Please, don't listen to any of these crybaby anti "racism" crusaders...y'all just keep doing your thing--Blis1 20:52, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Word up, bro. --Unissakävelijä 12:52, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

"Mystery Spot" Edit

Shouldn't there be two "mystery spots" on the map? Lesotho and Swaziland are both South Africa-locked, y'know. Also there should probably be some references to the two Congos, despite the ignorant theme of the article. --Mareth 23:35, 2 November 2006 (UTC

"Quotes" Edit

Who removed the quotes, they were funny, someone put em back without ruining the pro cons thing cause it's grown alot since, i don't know how.

somewhat different articleEdit

Germen Wiki STUPIDEDIA has a long and funny article (at least for those who speak German). Have a look. Maybe some of the content can be included here? -- 11:45, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

This isn't funny Edit

the pissbag author needs to keep their dayjob

The folks who voted to feature this article disagree. --Jordanus 05:35, 14 May 2008 (UTC)


"There are TONS of niggers to hang." WOW, this has secured my faith. Many white people are cowards who would never say this to a black persons face! (the're also pasty and akward and they cry all the time) we should change it to "theres tons of PASTY ASS HONKEYS TO HANG!!" fuckers.

That addition was a piece of crap and has been removed. --Jordanus 05:35, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

This is nonsense there are alot of niggers to hang with in africa. I'm white and I just told my black friends I love hanging out with them to their face!. Unfortunately there are very few white people to hang with in africa see genocide :(

Surprised Edit

I'm surprised nobody actually added "Africa is actually a country with many states" or "Afrikaans is the official language of Africa", you'd be surprised how many have said that. Adaobi 22:59, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Think of the childrenEdit
