Bah, my original draft was a lot funnier than the current article. Much like the Liberal Terrorists article was funnier before the British invasion changed it. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 03:49, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Blastar, in your original edit you suggested someone stop you. Perhaps Claudius and I were too presumptious, even gullible, taking your comment literally. But it's too late now. I've got curling practice, got to go... - WILD WEASEL 11:18, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Saying your original article was funnier before we began reworking it, is like saying Iraq is a lot safer now that the U.S. is there "protecting" it. Also, were not done working it over yet.--Claudius Prime 18:30, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
No New Math reference for the way Enron does their books? That was a classic. How could you omit it? The colorization of electricity was funny, as was the reverse description of Enron which many Uncyclopedia articles take on making themselves funny. The somebody stop me, was a comedic reference from a movie, which I am sure neither of you two watched. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 20:29, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Television is a Crutch
Jupitious thunder! I didn't catch the Enron movie, I don't watch t.v. because t.v is a nickname and nicknames are for friends- and TELEVISION is no friend of mine. I remember reading your version of the Enron article and finding a few blurbs funny at times, but it looked like you put it together while bored with a dog walking business. Not like you sat down to create a work of art. And that's what Wild Weasel and I do- create masterpieces. :) --Claudius Prime 20:53, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Bah to the Third Power
Blastar, the original article wasn't terrible, but I think we just saw a chance to have fun with the idea. And I had a lot of fun - I liked the oppurtunity to cheerfully sell disaster and fruad. Hopefully, somebody laughs, though it may not be you.
And, for the record, I was deadpanning about "somebody stop me." As an American male who is fairly familiar with the works of Jim Carey, that line is pretty hard to miss. :) — 2ND LT. Sir Edward, Grizzly of Wild KUN VFH FP (Oh my God! Grizzly Bear! Nooooo!) 23:42, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Well it was a first draft, I was going to come back and finish it. I hurt my knee, and then I found out I had a problem with my heart when I failed an EKG test. I decided to take it easy and I have been recovering ever since I had my knee and heart surgeries. I was even gone from Uncyclopedia for two months. I returned to find out eventually that someone rewrote the article here. That it was not as funny as I originally wrote it. Some parts are funny, like the trailer and Scrooge McDuck references, but the rest need major work. Most of it is really factual, and it should be fictional because this is not Wikipedia. So can we work together to make this one more funny? --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 01:18, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
We've got to be "unificators"
Dear Orion Blastar, of course. If you would like to help funny this up, feel free. We've got a pre-scandal and a post-scandal section. Wild Weasel has been working on pre-scandal, and I'm trying to make headway on the post-scandal section. I'm going to try and make substantial gains on that today.
Wild Weasel- You okay with Orion Blastar giving some input? That seems to be the best thing to do, since this is Uncyclopedia, a collaboration etc--Claudius Prime 13:45, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
- I'm cool with it, but I have one request - add new material as opposed to changing old stuff I or Claudius did. I know some or most of it will get tinkered with eventually, and by no means am I saying what's there is great (though I do enjoy it so far), but for example some anon. user changed a line to "Enron was George Jetson's son." Not funny. So Blastar, go ahead and add, but I would stress new material over altering existing work. And that's my two cents. Cornet Sir Wilde Weas'l KUN VFH FP 13:55, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
