  • Symbol comment vote Room for improvement Boston statement too random, unless Boston is well known for a Muslim population or something like that but obviously not well-known enough in Britain, outside of USA. Also why doesn't Mecca have combustible materials. I know that that statement backs up the joke on burning people (something I didn't know Boston was famous for!) but the statement itself needs backing up to look encyclopedic. Having said that, there are very good jokes in the article such as facing away from Mecca on the toilet.

    Boston was the launch site for 9/11 and next door to the site of the notorious Witch Trials — neither of which relate directly to Mecca. Point taken. Spıke Ѧ 14:45 1-Mar-14
  • Symbol comment vote Comment. فتحة mean Mecca? Mecca means truck stop? Muhammad wrote the Koran in his own hand? Is this THE Mecca article on Uncyclopedia? Or is this a 9/11 spoof? Its a bit insulting, convoluted, and not funny IMHO Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 15:57, Mar 2
  • Symbol comment vote Comment. It could just be me, but although it's quite well written I didn't find any of it amusing. I see the satire but not the comedy so I'd argue it needs to be a bit more risqué in general, although I'd settle for absurd. I read through it completely stone-faced thinking the punchline would be at the end, but sadly there wasn't one. GUN   SIR  MAC  BOSWELL  Knightssword   [†]  13:12, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
