Uncyclopedia's WW2 article shows signs of life
The community project on creating a WW2 article really got under way over the weekend when both Romartus, ScottPat and Sog1970 all wrote a section for the article. Romartus tackled in considerable detail the phoney war, in which nothing much really happens, while Sog1970 stuck to the age old British tradition of mocking the Italians for their performance in WW2 and ScottPat entered the start of a section on the Battle on the sea and in the conference room.
UnSignpost strongly encourages other members of the community to get involved in the project and add one or two sections to the fantastic article.
Into the Heart of Darkness
This Summer users Simsie and Romartus embarked on an expedition to Wikia headquarters located in the heart of the Belgian Congo, as stated in this week's headline story. Following in the footsteps of Marlow himself they entered a world of advertising, marketing, money-making and oppression. They witnessed at first sight the ins and outs of the Wikia corporation. When they returned from their expedition our reporter caught up with them to produce this exclusive interview:
What was the first thing that the head of the Wikia corporation said to you upon arrival to the head office?
Romartus: "Dr. Livingstone I presume!"
And what was your reaction?
Simsie: "Mainly confusion as I never had realised that Romartus' true identity was a famous Victorian explorer."
What did it feel like seeing each other in flesh as fellow Uncyclopedians?
Romartus: "Kind of weird but then I guess Simsie got the larger surprise when she realised that I am four foot two and only have one eye. I think she imagined me to be more of a Roman like my username suggests."
Would you care to reveal some of the secrets on how the Wikia Corporation is run?
Simsie: "What secrets? There are none!"
What was Jimbo like?
Romartus: Tall, slender, big guns. He was a handsome ma...wait, isn't this Simsie's script?
What was your meeting with the Wikia staff like?
Simsie: Oh we just sat on a riverbank near the spring of the Congo river and threw sticks into the water to try and piss off the crocodiles. Jimbo would take us out hunting lions now and again but we didn't mind these burdens of work and effort and took to the task eagerly. I think Romartus and I are both in agreement that the free coffee is the only free coffee in the World to actual taste great.
Finally, to both of you: what was your highlight of the trip?
Romartus: I've run out of things to say on my script.
No you need to turn over, the answer's on the back.
Romartus: Oh thanks. Yeah...my highlight was visiting Jimbo's personal aquarium with all the piranha fish.
Simsie: I would have agreed with Romartus there if only it wasn't for the fact that they had a really cool room called room 101 and....
Romartus: Shhh. You're not supposed to talk about that!
Simsie: Whoops, oh yeah. The lunch was good, I suppose.
