Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/HowTo:Hear a Picture
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
A not-so-obvious-unless-you-look-at-the-links comparison between art and relationships with women. --Farley Grey 20:03, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
|Humour:||5||Some nice lines.|
|Concept:||4||Honestly, this is confusing. The idea of hearing pictures is surreal enough in itself to make an article. The idea of comparing art appreciation to relationship issues is surreal enough to make an article. Combining the two is probably a bridge too far. It is for me, anyway.|
|Prose and formatting:||7||Nothing glaring, but it looks a bit untidy. And there are probably too many quotes.|
|Images:||7||Well, there are some. There's nothing wrong with them, and they're relevant. Nothing really funny about them either.|
|Miscellaneous:||5||I hate the misc box.|
|Final Score:||28||My honest feeling here is that you're trying to do too much. Either make an article about hearing pictures, or make an article linking art appreciation to relationships.|

You could do both ideas as separate articles, as I kind of like both of them.
The art appreciation/relationships one would benefit from a more straightforward approach. Art critics are pretentious enough without adding the "hearing" aspect. You can easily get away with all sorts of gumph. And possibly make the link a little less subtle from the start, so people get the thread quite quickly. It helps to keep them involved. Don't rely on the links alone.
Hearing a picture opens up some intriguing possibilities as well. How did people first learn this noble art? Possibly a bit of contrast could work here - the higher the art form, the more base, vulgar or stupid its message/sound. Conversely, stick figure drawings or suchlike may have some very profound insights?
This is an example of an article being less than the sum of its parts, as it's a bit too convoluted for its own good. Sometimes, less is more.
