- But it subtly mixes Shakespear's King Lear with Porn. Whats not to love? -- Sir Mhaille (talk to me) 22:06, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
- As Mhaille said, it's subtle. Perhaps too high-brow, for the masses. Or maybe it's just porn. --Sir ENeGMA (talk) GUN WotM PLS 22:11, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
- Man! Up until now, I didn't know miss Banks was one of the Seven Uppers! I only knew her for her watersports activities previously. This Article certainly broadened my horizon! --di Mario 23:05, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
- Keep. 'Cause Mhaille told me to. --ANIDN MENOSCWICZ 00:05, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
- Weak keep. Needs expansion though, perhaps some refernce to the scene where king Lear runs naked into the storm, or the love affair between the two sisters and Edmond.---Asteroid B612 (aka Rataube) - Ñ 03:01, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
- If you expand it, I'll let you keep it. — Major Sir Hinoa (Plead) (KUN) 17:51, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
- Boobies and Shakespeare. Much better rightside up. -- Imrealized 05:17, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
- Per Nytrospawn. Anyway, this thing just looks like the megatons of stuff we have got rid of here. -- Colonel Swordman 13:56, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

- Well, the current article is crap, but the title itself has a lot of potential. Something blending together 7-Up the drink, 1-Up and 7-Zip. - Sir Sikon [formerly known as Guest] 18:05, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
- I challenge Mhaille's claim of subtlety:
- The article is titled "7-Up", and the reason for this is likely the starring of Brian Blessed in movie "Seven Swords of Wayland" as King Oswine. You may ask: what does King Oswine has to do with King Lear? The answer is "nothing". The whole article was pretty meant to be a joke on Brian Blessed's roles in both the said movie and King Lear in the first place, but for some freak reason, and as more content was added, the whole thing simply went off into a totally different direction.
- The "Film Overview" section was added to the article when Mhaille edited the article the third time. Note there is time difference of almost 1 day between the the first and the third version, with the second version lying right in between. Since both the 1st and the 2nd versions are what we usually consider "sub-stubs", it is obvious that Mhaille did not even have a plan for the article when he started it.
- Check this out. The Wickedpedia article outlines the the general plot of Shakespears' "King Lear". Mhaille had likely read it prior to his third edit. However, when he began expanding the article he decide to make King Lear a character starred by Bruce Willis instead of Brian Blessed. It was a flop, and by the time he finished his fourteenth edited there had already been at least 3 jokes mixing and matching in a highly incoherent manner - the Brian Blessed joke, the porn joke and King Lear joke. As a result, the article was doomed to be a piece of random humour - as you can see even today.
- (P.S. I am not here to discredit Mhaille as a person but simply trying to point out the 7-Up is nothing but a piece of random humour. Please don't take the whole thing the wrong way.) -- Colonel Swordman 15:38, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
If I may address each point.....
- The title has nothing to do with Brian Blessed, its a not very subtle Pron reference, indeed the only two reference throughout the article are Shakespeare and Porn Films (if you look at a lot of my "work" you'll see a similar pattern of fusing two often conflicting subjects).
- The fact that there is a day between edits does not mean that I did not have a plan for the article, rather that I was busy. A check of my edit history will show you that I added a couple of lines to a few other articles around the same time before returning to 7-Up. I am in a full time job, as well as running my own business, so sometimes, sadly, work has to take precidence.
- I did not need to read the Wikipedia version of the story as I was already well aware of the plot, the characters and the sources that Shakespeare drew upon. As I have already stated there is only the two themes within the article.
- Its worth noting that at the time of the article's "birth" Uncyclopedia was in a transitional phase, between lots of very "stubby" articles to full blown encyclopedic masterworks. I appreciate that humour is often a subjective issue, but feel this article already has more than adequate foundations to grow into something very worthwhile. I refute the idea that it is random, as I have stated there are only two themes. Also, Colonel, (if indeed you are a Colonel) I won't take anything the wrong way. -- Sir Mhaille (talk to me)
- Well, then, may Sophia have mercy on your article. -- Colonel Swordman 11:02, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
