I'm like a really inobedient dog. I mark my territory then come back to piss on it later. Jackofspades (talk) 06:35, March 7, 2011 (UTC)
Humour: 10 I only have one thing to tell you: Making deals with the devil is generally not advisable. A rumor will have to be spread that you no longer have your soul, and instead have this article.

Ok so, I am insanely jealous of your writing skills here. I seriously cannot find a single thing wrong with this article humor-wise, and, with your permission, may steal the "Story of a courtship" to use as a monologue if I ever need to audition again. It was seriously that good. Breaking it down for you is going to be a little difficult but here goes. The intro, like the rest of the article, flows well into all of your "jokes" (I put quotes around it cuz they aren't jokes per-say, but yeah...) Sections 1-4 are all great in that they are completely outrageous, but there is still that nagging "yeah that could be true." There are a couple of things that seem odd, but they will be discussed later. Sections 5 and 6 had me just about rolling on the floor. I love the drugged out humor and the Le Pew- like style of whoever is narrating this article. The last two sections are great as well, they let the article finish with a couple laughs without upstaging the main point. Go get 'er tiger.

Concept: 9.5 Love the concept and I love how well you pulled it off. I took off half a point because there is that one little thing missing that I can't explain. Although I think this article seems like two articles put together, one on skunks and one on how to love skunks, it still works together pretty much perfectly. Putting the love story after a few sections on skunks and their origins was a good idea as it makes the reader try to guess what's going to happen with the whole skunk-lover thing, and makes it way more satisfying when you actually get to the sections about courting skunks. Aaaaand moving on.
Prose and formatting: 8.5 There are a couple places where the prose is strange or your grammar is wrong (as far as I know.) The section "where do skunks come from" is especially guilty of this. "Because none of these things have no close relatives. Skunks are not related to ferrets or badgers or lemmings, or anything else with four legs for that matter" that first sentence doesn't make sense to me, double negative and all, and the second sentence should be "not related to ferrets nor...nor...nor...nor" (might want to check with someone who knows for 100% sure though.) I would recommend reading it through one more time, perhaps out loud, before nomming it just to smooth out some of that stuff.
Images: 9 Image-by-image review go!

Opening

Perfect. Right size, right pic, right caption. Don't change anything. This also might be the best part of the article right here. I love it.

Octopus

Pretty funny. It feels like you put this in because you needed another pic, but it still fits rather well. The caption is a little weird, but it's good for a laugh. This is probably your weakest image and should be the one you change if you change any of them. Even if you just changed it to a black and white octopus or that one that can change its shape it might make it a little bit better.

Dual skunks

Relevant picture and a funny, if disturbing, caption. The picture itself could be a little bit bigger as the caption extends pretty far below the picture, which seems awkward to me. The caption and picture are good though, don't change either of them.

Skunk magazine

Really good for both the caption and the pic. Don't change it unless you sell another soul to find a pic that is almost exactly the same without the guy looking scared.

Miscellaneous: 9.5 Overall "feel" of the article.
Final Score: 46.5 What did you do with Kojol's elephant?!?!
