Nominate

Self-nomination regulation: self-nominated articles (i.e. you write an article and then decide to nominate it yourself) no longer require a pee review. Pee Review is still highly recommended for newer users. Do not clog up VFH with poor quality self-nominated articles... or else.

VFH is not a discussion page. If you'd like constructive criticism for your article, please submit it to Uncyclopedia:Pee Review.

  • Not all the way there yet. Started life with over-emphasis on Wacky Treaties, bickering scholars, and nonsense numbers. I'd like to see satire themes in addition to the move of magazines to the Internet, such as the conflict between delivering the truth and delivering what the page-flipper wants to see, magazines as a fashion item for the reader, or Boy Scouts hawking subscriptions to useless magazines as a fundraiser. Repeated reliance on Viz as an automatic joke will be lost on Americans. Spıke Ѧ 12:59 31-Mar-15

  • Comment. Funny, but the second section down makes this sound more like an article about capital punishment, specifically. I'd like to see more expansion of "cruel and unusual" punishments which do not involve execution. Chunkles (talk) 06:17, March 26, 2015 (UTC)
    I've added a final sentence to the Intro to explain the link, but I see no good way to expand the article in this direction without further repeating the joke of citing repeats of Mr. Bean and then Instant Replay in baseball. Spıke Ѧ 13:03 26-Mar-15

  1. It has a funny concept, following I have a dream with the response, "Have you sought help?" But articles "in the style of the thing they are about" have one funny concept as well. This is good writing, but descent into insanity does not make for a funny read, and the portion that would appear on our main page unfolds especially slowly. I don't get the monkeys, nor the purported explanation at the end, unless it is to say that reality is insane and the crazy man is the only accurate observer. Now my head hurts as well. Spıke Ѧ 22:05 22-Feb-15
    Despite not having got it, you explained it better than I could! "Reality is insane and the crazy man is the only accurate observer" - that's quite it. The interpretations are not very clear, but that's deliberate: in my vision, the man, who always relied on logic, becomes crazy being unable to comprehend racial discrimination. The monkeys are an incarnation of the racial prejudice, but also the only "logical" way out of this mess for the main character: if we don't treat them like humans, than they can't be humans, can they? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:12, February 23, 2015 (UTC)
    Hence, by the way, the name of the article. The main character's insane dream and Dr. King's famous one actually coincide (which becomes more obvious towards the end). Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:15, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment. I have observed that Xam particularly likes this one, but although I was proud of it and will maintain there are good jokes in it, it is very clunky and uneven and lacks direction. So not terribly featureworthy. Sigphoto|(get dtf) 01:24, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

  1. Symbol against vote Against. Author Sequence in 2009 structured this not as an encyclopedia article but as a sales pitch (indeed, apparently with a black insurance salesman: "We be living in a very dangerous time"). Despite prepending an encyclopedia-like Intro (which helpfully? discloses that this is an article about a fraud), the result is stand-up or a stage play. Spıke Ѧ 12:18 1-Jan-15
  2. Symbol against vote Against. I agree with SPIKE. Shifting from one format to another is confusing and detracts from the article. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 04:51, January 9, 2015 (UTC)
Comments
  • Comment. Eliminate the first paragraph and keep the rest. It's really good without the context shift as others mentioned. I especially like the automatic username insertion in the "The contract" section; clever! Chunkles (talk) 22:15, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
    To the contrary! most use of {{USERNAME}} is not clever but "stagnant" and discouraged in Sec. 9 of HTBFANJS. This use is not an overt prank, but certainly not a feature. Spıke Ѧ 22:26 5-Mar-15
    Ah, okay, I was unfamiliar with that. To be honest, this was the first time I've ever encountered its usage since I joined. Chunkles (talk) 05:42, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • I have now eliminated the first paragraph and made what is now the Intro flow better. I moved the photo to the left in order to keep {{Wikipedia}} on the right, as the fact that there is an actual article on WP:Alien abduction insurance is a key to this article. Am still neither comfortable with the use of the shuck-and-jive dialect nor ready to rewrite the article entirely. Spıke Ѧ 22:33 5-Mar-15
