Talk:The Baker's Dozen
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
edit Backstory of some kind
Some time last summer, Sophia told me to spork the text from Wikipedia's article on The Dirty Dozen. Unfortunately, she didn't tell me what to do with it when I got it, so it sat, un-comedified (not a real word), on my hard drive...until now. I hope this is what she wanted.05:16, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

I didn't notice before, but this page has awful, awful puns. For this, I apologize.01:43, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
The "...the rest having succumbed to a high protein diet." should probably be "carbs", instead. I'll fix it when it gets unlocked. Pesky ingredients!17:11, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
You think you have it rough?Feel your pain. One of my reference links went down the day before locking, and I swapped it out in fear it would still be down when judging came around. It came back up today. ::sigh:: --monika 17:37, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
- That's what you get for doing stuff. I'd avoid using words and pictures entirely if I could figure out how to make the wordless/pictureless result funny. 20:29, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
I like it
The "recipe needed" things are screwing with your references. Frankly it's disgusting. I'd remove them, but they're funny. I'd fix whatever it is about them that kills the references, but I don't know how. I'd helpfully tell you about it in the vain hope that you might have the requisite skills to do something about this situation, but, erm, actually, I'll do that. --12:40, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
- You'd think that I would've double-checked after adding them, to make sure that they didn't break formatting...of course, that implies a level of competence which I clearly do not possess. 18:59, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
- I made it work. I set my phasers to warp nine, then sped around the sun, which turned back time and Kaaaaahn!. Can you come let me out of my locker? 19:07, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
edit [Insert poorly aimed outrage]
What is the point here? This page is obviously supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but it's also filled with erroneous manure. Jake "McNiece" is the correct spelling of the man's name. If your going to badmouth someone whom you know nothing about, correct spelling is useful. Jake McNiece didn't write 'the book'that the film "Dirty Dozen" may have been inspired by. He was still alive in 2003, publishing a memoir entitled "The Filthy Thirteen-the true story of The Dirty Dozen'" co-written with Richard Killblane. It conveys the 'good ole boy' manner of Mr. McNiece and his cohorts with such colloquialisms as, "I was drunk as $300."
Mr. McNiece was a brave and heroic soldier, who never aspired to or attained high rank and was frequently insubordinate as a young serviceman when not in combat. However, he received numerous Bronze Stars, and four Bronze Stars with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Croix de Guerre from both France and Belgium and several other medals. These citations were awarded for meritorious service after parachuting behind enemy lines, on the field of battle -- from Normandy through Holland to Bastogne--not "incompetence". He and his fellow soldiers also received a Presidential Unit Citation.
Though not depicted in either the film nor mentioned in this idiotic screed, "The Baker's Dozen" McNiece and his men also caused great consternation among the enemy in combat by donning war paint on their faces and wearing their hair in the style of the Mohawk. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
- I'd be offended at your offendedness, but I have no idea what you're talking about. I wasn't badmouthing McNiece. I was making fun of a movie. With buns.
