  1. Self-nom + For. I don't think I can add anything anymore, and Why? helped me a lot with it. ~Scriptsiggy.JPGTelephonesig Star Starsig Kidneysig 09:57, Dec 19, 2009

  4. Symbol for vote For. SIRE FREDDMOOSHA Flag of Egypt AMUSE ME • 21:03 • Sunday, 20-12-2009
  5. Weak For. I had to do some background reading before voting. A well written piece though perhaps the humour is more of a chuckle than a lol. LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 23:05, December 20, 2009 (UTC)
  6. The punishment for this failure is called a Grammy. Once I saw that I knew I had to vote here. --Nikau 01:32, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
  7. For I had no fucking clue who this guy was, yet found it hilarious. Although I found the last paragraph a bit redundant, it's still good enough. --Hugs and kisses, Black_Flamingo 11:01, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
  8. For. Thought it was almost featurable before my Pee Review; think it's ready now (and I didn't know Colin Meloy either, but am scrutinizing the sagacious songsmith simultaneously while scribing this studied synopsis). WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 19:17, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
  9. Weak for. There were two parallel concepts here: the one about the Decemberists writing ridiculous lyrics, and the one about the narrator being an arrogant hipster puke. The first one was hilarious; the second one, not so much, for me. But on the balance I still go thumbs-up. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 19:38, December 24, 2009 (UTC)
  10. For. Chyel 04:01, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
  11. Strong For. You had me at "Consumption, tuberculosis, cholera, syphilis – what you get after laying with a rake" - and it kept going! Very nice. Necropaxx (T) {~} Sunday, 03:43, Jan 3 2010
  12. For. All we need now is HowTo: Write Chinese Poetry. Alexor, Destroyer of Worlds 03:08, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

  • Ok, Fag, that was painful. You make the worst comments on VFH, well, maybe not all of them, I don't want to give them too little credit. ~Scriptsiggy.JPGTelephonesig Star Starsig Kidneysig 01:07, Dec 21, 2009

  • Abstain. I know nothing of the man or the band. Never heard of 'em. And while it seems well-written, I'm not finding it that funny without that knowledge. It seems to be improved by familiarity with the subject, so I'll abstain on those grounds. --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:59, Dec 29
  • Just so you know, I did write it with outsiders in mind. I guess it's a fail on my part. ~Scriptsiggy.JPGTelephonesig Star Starsig Kidneysig 13:43, Dec 29, 2009
I don't think so, you did well. The Meloy described in your article is an archetype most people should recognise. Plus, it's not hard to find out who he is. --Hugs and kisses, Black_Flamingo 15:08, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
  • Symbol comment vote Comment. I have heard one song by the Decemberists (The Mariner's Revenge) before reading this. In my opinion, you don't really need special knowledge to appreciate this article. Good job Hiatus! Necropaxx (T) {~} Sunday, 03:43, Jan 3 2010
    In which case, there's just something not tickling me about it - guess it must be that old subjectivity thing. Shame, looks like whatever I'm missing has tickled enough people - I wish I could see it! --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:10, Jan 19
  • Abstain. Per UU. ChiefjusticeDS 17:59, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
