I just did an overhaul on this one, and added some more pics. I like it, but I still think some feedback would be cool. --THINKER 22:18, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Humour: 8 I actually lol'd! Wow!
Concept: 6 Not what I would expect to be a great article, but in fact it is awesome.
Prose and formatting: 9 My favorite part of this probably: The captions on the images are really what make them great. Love the prose. Couple of red links hurt the formatting tho.
Images: 9 All great. Rosie, not so much, but hey- I love it.
Miscellaneous: 9 This article is worthy of a nine
Final Score: 41 I really enjoyed this. I couldn't help but notice the red link for "poodle skirt" maybe you should do an article on it. I did fix a couple of the red links btw, but there are a couple others that need fixing. Great Job!

Okay, so saying that Bill Nye was a historian and that Thomas Edison was a sculptor made some sense in context... but is the date of Reagan's presidency deliberately off? Nixon was president during the times mentioned, not Reagan. If there's a joke there, could someone explain it to me? — Sir Wehp! (t!) (c!) — 07:15, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

This draws on a principle tenant of subtle humor. Its the idea that the outlandish, blatantly false statements are especially funny when presented as unfaltering fact. Its dry delivery of a screwball statement; when one detaches from the hard details and accepts the inherent nonsense of the work, these instances can be hilarious (given the nature of Uncyclopedia, I would've thought it to be nearly foundational). This article is a parody, not a satire.
In fact, the Edison and Nye parts fall under the same category; when a flat-out falsehood is presented as a whole truth, it has the potential to be funny. This is of course perceived differently by different people. You can change it to Nixon if you'd like though Wehp :) --THINKER 08:23, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
Nah, that's okay. I think I was just a bit thick when I read it.  :-P — Sir Wehp! (t!) (c!) — 06:09, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
