      • Some time ago the opening line was: Charles Dickens, also known as Charles Dickhead... That was a killer line! Change it back please :) ***

The first part was funny. Then it devolves into madness and RH, which I hate. Judgement 13:20, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Much better, no? Judgement 02:18, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Is it just me, or is this long? I forgot to read it. I will though, offline. It's probably good. --Jesus Freak Atheist 23:07, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

That's because people butchered my work! I must fix! --Sir Judgement F@H UmP VFH {talk} 00:51, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

It was featured for a reason, people. Unless you have something funny to add, don't touch it. Thanks. --Sir Judgement F@H UmP VFH {talk} 01:02, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

edit From Pee Review

Not my first article, but my first that is written as a "style joke". Let me know what you think. Again, it's my first article of this kind, so don't be afraid to be brutal. --Judgement 02:22, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Humour: 8 As a style joke, it is subtle humour. The bit about pimping is a bit strange.
Concept: 9 Great concept; I like how you captured the squalored circumstances in his work. Maybe it would be funnier if you transposed him into more of these.
Prose and formatting: 9 Nearly flawless. Note, however, that 'droll' means comedic.
Images: 10 I am unqualified to comment on images.
Miscellaneous: 10
Final Score: 46

Humour: 8 As said before, it's subtle, but I like it. The Dickensian trait of reiterating-the-bleeding-obvious lives on. Lines like "as he is a man (a fact which I need not reiterate, as it is quite obvious given his gender)" work. And I found the line "the reader, being a man (for this is most likely the case)" hilarious.
Concept: 8 The concept is good and well executed. The attempt at writing in a Dickensian way is carried out well. Although I also feel the bit about pimping strays from the theme...
Prose and formatting: 9 The long sentances and heavy usage of comas is brilliant, adding to the "long and lugubrious" Dickensian style very well.
Images: 7 I think the top and bottom images are used to great effect. But I feel that the image used in the "writing career" section adds little. I'd suggest replacing it. (I've put an image here[1] - could say something about a incredibly long reading session causing an audience member to commit suicide or whatever).
Miscellaneous: 10 -
Final Score: 42 A well written article with good subtle humour. Nice work.

Subtleness by stating the obvious. How ironic.. 20:29, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

edit Dickens head

Who wrote that first paragraph so perfectily in the rambleing talking style of Dickens? It's absolutely spot on.--Crestville 16:35, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

I wrote it. As a matter of fact, I wrote the entire article. Happy things! :D -- Sir Judgement F@H UmP VFH {talk} 03:11, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

edit This makes me happy.

I've been reading Dickens for school, and this incredibly accurate depiction of him just makes me giggle, even though I'm sure it might fly over a few people's head. Honestly, I've become so used to his rambling and run on sentences that I hardly notice what is wrong with it anymore D: Thanks for a laugh anyways --Johnfn 01:32, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
