'India is a slow but deadly poison': Kedar Joshi Edit

Guys, some interesting, funny stuff for possible addition! Take a look! The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) 10:49, September 10, 2012

That's interesting. I understand you're new here, but you should always sign your posts on talk pages. — clicky! 20:04, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

history section Edit

i haven't read the whole of this featured article but i find the "history" section insipid (not funny) and written from an american indophile's perspective. while there is nothing wrong with that perspective, the writer (or several "edit" contributors) have been hunkered down by their limited knowledge of the subject and thus failed to make the content sound funny -- it is forced. anyone has objections? --Ack00 (talk) 16:00, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

Map and corruption Edit

India's main industry and sport is corruption,and why Kashmir is excluded from India's map. 12:40, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

New comments at the bottom, please. Regarding the first point: Yes, but the main industry and sport in all our countries is corruption! Regarding the second point: I am all ears: Why is Kashmir excluded from India's map? and be sure to state your answer in the form of a joke. Spıke Ѧ 12:54 5-Apr-13

Sorry but please change the map,and I think more can be added in Indian history section,making it much funnier. 15:42, April 6, 2013 (UTC)

Earlier page showing c program and OutSource Singh was funny, this one just boring The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs)

The MAP needs to be changed please. This just isn't right and not funny. 10:55, September 6, 2014 (UTC+1) The preceding unsigned comment was added by Uncycloped (talk • contribs)

Have you got a better option?                               Puppy's talk page09:59 am 06 Sep 2014

This would be a start- india-map.jpg You can still create a funny variant without messing with the external boundaries of our country as our soldiers shed their blood to defend them so it's not funny to us. People do get the humour in showing the greenery with just tiny areas of red meant to show hot weather (contrary to how the country actually gets hot in most parts). But snipping out parts of the country is just mean (if you intentionally want to insult Indians that's your call... all we can do is record our objection in comments here) The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs)

Please don't assume that editors around the world intend to insult India, or even understand the details of its relations with its neighbors. If I were making a map, I would certainly do something with Jammu/Kashmir that would be in conflict with the official opinion of India, just to try to make a funny point. If you can edit images, you are welcome to start with a free map and make it funny with labels and captions. However, things like spelling errors or telling a joke in a funnier way are difficult; collaboration is awkward when an image is involved. (Please sign in and sign your posts the right way; if you are "Uncycloped" again, I sent you a post explaining how to do this.) Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 13:24 6-Sep-14
Looking at the picture itself, it makes a fine joke. Using a map with red spots and saying the red spots are something other than what they are is a joke, not a mean-spirited implication that they don't belong to India. Lighten up. Spıke Ѧ 13:27 6-Sep-14

Addition Edit

Favorite pastime could be added in the infobox: rapes, producing kids etc. When will the article be unprotected?Coldbloodz (talk) 23:00, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Both of these strike me as drive-by slaps rather than jokes based on something specific to India. The article has been protected since April 2012 against new and unregistered users. You will not always be new. Spıke Ѧ 23:10 9-Jan-14
When will I become old?Coldbloodz (talk) 23:11, January 9, 2014 (UTC)
After you start growing hair in strange places and your voice gets deeper.                               Puppy's talk page12:20 am 10 Jan 2014

But that's not the point. The point is that, after you become veteran enough to edit the article, you still should not dump in a rape joke (at least one that doesn't relate to anything, and an Infobox is a confining place in which to make it relate to anything). Spıke Ѧ 03:55 10-Jan-14

Something to add? Edit

Hasn't anyone ever noticed that a lot of Indians tend to be homosexual? I mean, look at our society: Indian men tend to sound fruity, and usually if they don't have an Indian accent. And I believe a good portion of these people are immigrants. I wonder why . . . But anyway, I think something relating to this should be added to the article. (P.S. I am not racist, and have tried to word my suggestion so that it doesn't sound that way. I know I am also dealing with stereotypes that may offend people. If you are one of the offended, then suck it up. This is Uncyclopedia: a site known for offending people [albeit in a humorous way.] Well anyway, can someone implement my suggestion in some way? Thanks.) The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wiki yam (talk • contribs)

In other words: You cannot think of any comedy strategy but think that this article should be turned in the direction of a racial sterotype. (P.S. You are not racist.) I think that is a stupid idea. This website is to write funny stuff, not to document your observations about society in the case that you don't have a way to make it funny. Spıke Ѧ 04:33 12-Feb-15

Add A Timezone Edit

Add a timezone into the infobox and make it DST (Desi Standard Time). Make a note that explains that DST is whenever you were supposed to be "there" + 30-90 mins. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs)
