  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. A very bad combination of advocacy and randumbo. --Mn-z 16:07, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Indeed. To the good, the Intro sums up exactly the comedy technique: "The afflicted lose all ability to think rationally, use common sense, and in extreme cases, half their IQ." Unfortunately, "X is for stupid people" is insult not comedy. The rest of the article is listcruft. Substantially unchanged since 2005 except for the addition of Section 1, a minimally funny criticism of the basis of Christianity. Spıke ¬ 16:31 5-Apr-13
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Lists. Jesus is a zombie. Not funny. However the concept of Christianity (or religion for that matter) being a disease is a great idea and would have potential. I would encourage others to salvage a good subject matter and make it funny. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 11:50, April 11, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. Articles written in English regarding other languages and cultures help English readers of a multi-cultural background, or readers curious about the humour of another given culture experience some of it. I can recognize many of these words, and those I can are in fact correct. If someone has doubts about the validity of what they read on Uncyclopedia (which they should) a quick google is only a step away. A good article should blur the line between truth and falsehood, shouldn't it? This is after all, a mock-encyclopedia. Therefore, if a reader is amused, is it really a bad thing if they DO in fact learn something? Hannes1813 (talk) 22:32, April 10, 2013 (UTC)
    In other words: You are Finnish, and you get it. Your vote confirms to me that the goal of this article is not humor. Unfortunately, this is a humor wiki. Spıke ¬ 11:53 11-Apr-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. We probably don't need an article on Finnish, and we certainly don't need one on its swears, as the typical reader of English doesn't know whether anything is true or deliberately false. The overwhelming attempt here is to teach (and to amuse the author by swearing to strangers), not to amuse the reader. Spıke ¬ 21:18 10-Apr-13
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Confused as to whether these words don't actually mean what the article says they do or that they actually do mean what the article says they do. Would be slightly funny if they didn't mean those definitions but not obvious to reader. A better way of doing this article would be to call it Finnish greetings and then write a swearword in Finnish and give it a pleasant definition. Another way to do this article would be to call it English greetings then write English swearwords which everyone will understand (even the Americans!) and give a definition in English of a pleasant word as though you were teaching a foreigner who doesn't know much English. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 12:55, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
    This exact "comedy" technique--pranking the reader by teaching him to swear when he doesn't intend to--is pursued with listcruft in many of our language articles. Your proposed English "lesson," at least readers of English would recognize as humor. Spıke ¬ 13:02 11-Apr-13

  1. A pretty good sojourn {page by Hyperbole. I enlarged the pic and fixed the red links. Sojourns are a set formula, they contain those type of capitalizations and follow a pattern which is discernible after reading a few of them. They've, as a category, been featured (the only category to be featured). I think mnbvcxz created the category. I've written two of them, and you have to follow the formula pretty closely. Hyperbole is one of our best writers, and this page actually educates and puts a "face" on a historical event. Aleister 12:04 11-4-'13
    Dittos on Hyperbole's skill; but after the first couple, pages that "follow the formula" are not creative comedy writing but simply imitation. Spıke ¬ 12:25 11-Apr-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete.. Lack of content. Incomprehensible. Apparently it has an in-joke in it but this is no excuse for poor spelling, swearing, no other humour, no capital letters at the start of each sentence. There is only one sentence in each paragraph and it is unencyclopedic. If there is something I'm missing and it should be kept then it at least needs to be changed to make it better along with the title which is random and unlikely to be typed in. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 11:31, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. The Category identifies it as an Uncyclopedia in-joke but I don't see the joke (except deliberate goofiness so minimally creative that anyone could type it in his sleep). Awfulness is funny, but awful Uncyclopedia pages are less funny than they are simply awful. "Poor spellin", meanwhile, nominator should simply correct rather than use VFD to look for volunteers to do so; least of all the original author, who has surely left the building. Recall also that nominator has the duty to look in the History to see if there was a better version once. Spıke ¬ 11:48 11-Apr-13
    Nominator is unable to find better history version. Nominator thinks that the title is so bad that no one could make this funny. Nominator therefore opts for it to be deleted as there is no content/subject here for nominator to work on. Nominator 11:53 11th April 2013 (UTC)

  1. Not encylopedic. Written in first person. Probably used to be a good article but I'm not sure how far to undo the changes. What started off (by the looks of the history) as a joke about GW creating a hurricane with fighter jets has been spoilt by an unregistered user who complains that Republicans are racist, has put a picture of himself on the article, commemorates famous black people and reminds you that he voted Obama a lot. I have no problem with his views but this is a humour site and he appears to be making a non-humorous political statement rant. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 18:01, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Is not just written in the first person but repeatedly returns to the personal quest of the author. The only joke here is that we give A's for such papers if the pupil is black. Nominator's sudden dislike of articles that are intended as rants and only incidentally funny is welcome.

  • Reverted to the article to the version that was nommed on VFH. Still has racism in it; apparently that is part of the joke - the commentary that racism "is ok if done by a minority group", and the idea that minorities think that whites are all racist. The student has obvious bias against white Republicans. Unfortunately, the joke has been lost over time, given Republican hatred of Obama, who happens to be black, and the resulting generalizations that have happened. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 23:44, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
    I can now see the alternate point-of-view this article uses. At least, I can when I get to the last line, the red one "after the credits roll." But sorry, my vote stands. The reader of a humor wiki should not have to slog through a spoof, which is indistinguishable from what millions of black pupils are encouraged to believe in all seriousness, to find a postscript that explains that it is all a joke.

  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. Its fine. It parodies and mocks action-war type movies. It needs a bit of editing but that's about it. I found it funny. I'm not sure what SPIKE means by duplicate war but I think that the humour isn't as complicated as that, it just makes you laugh a bit about how Spielberg likes making war films on WW2.

  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Okay, so the joke is, since World War II was a "duplicate war" (of World War I) (only it wasn't except in the eyes of a grade-schooler who has two more years before taking a course on World History) (or was it a duplicate Stephen Spielberg movie?) create an Uncyclopedia article "in the style of the thing it's about" by creating an arbitrary number of copies. One copy for everything the reader might search for, and then some; a brilliant alternative to the Redirect. Spıke ¬ 18:19 25-Mar-13

  • The others you list (as of now) are blah wars, not even worth fighting. This article seems like it had some thought into it, has lots of words and detail, its own maps apparently which follow the fighting, and might have redeeming value. I haven't read much of it, so maybe it's all jibberish under a candy covering, so for now I'll restrict this to a comment. The other ones, if you want to count my vote as a delete, please do so. Aleister 17:56 25-3-'13
    For the record, when counting, I am not going to hallucinate Aleister Delete votes onto a ballot based on discussion that occurs on some other ballot. Spıke ¬ 18:11 25-Mar-13
