UUtea A big mug o' reviewin' strength tea? Why, that must mean this article

Humour: 2 Oh man, let me guess: you're a Gooner? This is not really that funny. It contains elements of randomness; it certainly isn't funny to non-footie fans; it has gay 'jokes' which always reduce my score unless they're done for irony, which these don't seem to be. Basically, it's a short step from VFD.
Concept: 3 Well, articles on real people can be decent, but they need a decent approach, and you don't have a concept here beyond "write about Henry being dead good at football, having big lips, and leaving Arsenal".
Prose and formatting: 4 No massive mistakes, but it's not brilliantly written, and lists are almost always a no-no. Particularly when they're trivia lists and not funny.
Images: 4 Well they're relevant, I suppose.
Miscellaneous: 3.3 Averaged
Final Score: 16.3 To be honest, this is the kind of thing we see on VFD quite regularly. If you want to write something about a football player that makes you laugh, send it to a fanzine, post it on 606 or something. If you want to write a decent Uncyclopedia article, this is a bad start. Have a look at the comments below, and then decide if this is what you want to do. If it is, good luck, if not, cheerio!

Right, comments:

Read HTBFANJS. That's what we're aiming for here: articles that are funny even if you are not familiar with the subject. So you need to find a way to make the article funny to non-football fans. Perhaps his "Va-Va-Voom" car ads may help a little here, albeit still on a limited scale (they're really UK only, and we're international here!)

Read Buster Keaton. This is an example of an article about a famous person that made it to highlight. There aren't many of these. Note the fact that it has structure, jokes that can be understood without a detailed prior knowledge of the man and his works, and a coherent central concept (in this case, the biography style, often a good starting point for articles on real people.

Don't sign your articles . Just sign talk pages.

Basically, as I said above, you need to decide if you want to try and write a decent Uncyclopedia article, or just to write something a bit daft about a player you used to idolise. If it's the latter, there are other sites for you. If the former, may I suggest getting adopted by an experienced Uncyclopedian, who will help and guide you through the thorny process of writing a good article. It can help immensely, and there are plenty of friendly types prepared to do it. Just put {{adoptme}} on your userpage, and someone will be along to help.

Hope this helps, but remember, this is only my opinion, others are available, and good luck! --Sir Under User (Hi, How Are You?) VFH KUN 10:50, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
