edit Welcome to Uncyclopedia

Spike the Dog (06b)

Spike is a grumpy old dog. You can stroke his fur, or you can be smitten by his stick. It is up to you.

Hello, Chunkles, and welcome to Uncyclopedia. This is a wiki (a collection of pages anyone can edit). Words in blue are "links" and can be clicked to take you to another page. This wiki is for comedy. It pretends it's Wikipedia, but we make people laugh, not bore them. If you aren't interested in a fake encyclopedia but in writing fake news stories, we have UnNews, and there are other projects for scripts, lyrics, how-to guides, and so on.

What you can do

You can create your own article. For starters, create it under your own name; for example, User:Chunkles/Bedbug. (The red instead of blue is a link to a page that doesn't yet exist.) We have a list of articles that need to be created. You can help without writing articles; just read articles and, if you see an improvement in writing or in comedy, jump in and edit it. In fact, you can help without writing at all, such as organizing, watching for vandals, or even greeting other new users.

What you need

To write articles, you need a sense of humor and an ability to write good English. We all have strengths and weaknesses and you can get help in any area. But everyone needs an ability to work with other people. Be polite, positive, and helpful toward others, and assume others are doing the same toward you.

What to read

Here are some pages that might help you:

For personal help
  • The administrators are willing to help you, and several Uncyclopedians are willing to adopt you.
  • I will watch this page for a while and will know if you edit it. Afterward, you can contact me on my own talk page.
  • If you've written an article, we have a Proofreading service where someone will correct your mistakes, and a review process where an experienced Uncyclopedian will read your article and suggest improvements.
How to post to talk pages

Please follow these general rules:

  • Add comments at the end of a talk page so people notice them.
  • Start your paragraphs with one or more : characters to indent them and set them off from other people's posts.
  • At the end, type ~~~~ (four tildes), which gets replaced by your user name and the current date and time.
  • Don't delete anyone's messages. In case of any controversy, we depend on an accurate record of what was written. You may disavow your remarks by striking them through like this.

I hope you enjoy it here and write a lot of funny stuff! Spıke Ѧ 03:36 11-Nov-13

edit Mold

Hello and welcome! Kinda gross, but well done! Spıke Ѧ 03:36 11-Nov-13

Thanks! I was disappointed to see Uncyclopedia did not have an article on this. I hope to continue polishing and improving upon what I have unleashed created! Chunkles (talk) 07:57, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

On your current batch of edits, "It is common knowledge that..." is gassy language that may look encyclopedic but actually makes us look less like an encyclopedia. The British-versus-American spelling thing, we wrestle with at length and it isn't funny; just pick one and stick with it. How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid describes several other techniques that seem funny but have been overused. Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 11:30 12-Nov-13

Thanks for pointing those out. I'll look into fixing those. Chunkles (talk) 15:04, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! Those edits might strike you as "lazy" (from your change summary) but they make the article better. Please do peruse those documents; not because you need to, but to compare notes with other people who are trying to do the same thing as you. And if you disagree, say so and it could become an improvement to the style manual! Spıke Ѧ 15:16 12-Nov-13

edit Change summary

Are you indeed drunk? This can be embarrassing. Any Admin can give you a protective website block, to keep you from really embarrassing yourself until you can get some coffee into you tomorrow. It is always effective, except when I type "days" rather than "hours." Spıke Ѧ 02:32 15-Nov-13

LOL...I take it the jokes should only be in the article itself. :PChunkles (talk) 02:52, November 15, 2013 (UTC)
Well, there was an incident earlier this year where a user did indeed edit while drunk, so we just needed to make sure this wasn't a repeat of that. For now, jokes should be left to the article itself. Also, just so you know, joke categories are something to be avoided in general also, per community consensus. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 05:33, November 15, 2013 (UTC)

edit Ubuntu

Your addition is good. However, your strategy is irony, and your use of strikethrough makes the page look less encyclopedic, and tips your hand as well. I think it's preferable to use a deadpan voice and present facts so clear that the reader will be sucked in until the moment he realizes that the exact opposite is true. Spıke Ѧ 22:59 17-Nov-13

edit A place for rough drafts

Can I create rough drafts of new, unfinished articles where they can't be judged until they're "ready"? I have a couple ideas for new articles I'd like to write, but I would like to not have to write the whole thing almost all at once again. (Edit to add the signature I forgot. Whoops, sorry!) Chunkles (talk) 03:00, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Absolutely; your entire (infinite) userspace, for example, User:Chunkles/Total crap, is available for such experimentation. Anything goes there except stuff like porno and cyberbullying. Stuff you put in mainspace is not officially "judged," but everything in mainspace is subject to the opinions and unwanted collaboration of other Uncyclopedians. Spıke Ѧ 03:12 10-Dec-13

edit Guard animals

When you move this to mainspace, lowercase the "a" as shown above (Wikipedia/Uncyclopedia style). Also, you rebut PETA and say that guard animals eat less expensive food than human guards. But I believe you are neglecting to consider old humans who eat dog food too. Spıke Ѧ 03:39 26-Jan-14

edit Metroid (species)

Your new article is now advertised on the website main page as recent work. However, I would rethink the Intro.

  1. The non-gamer reader needs some brief explanation that the real-world basis is the Nintendo world.
  2. That it sucks is not a heavy-hitting punch line.

It is not entirely clear how this relates to our existing article on Metroid, though having different and incompatible articles on the same thing is never a problem, even if its name is not Bush. Spıke Ѧ 21:34 10-Mar-15

I'll come up with a better intro later, unless someone else gets to it first. This article is just about the enemy type in the games; I interpret the pre-existing Metroid article to be about the game series in its entirety. Chunkles (talk) 21:38, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, should be fixed now. Chunkles (talk) 02:55, March 13, 2015 (UTC)

edit ICU

Do not tag pages such as The Great Alcoholic Pigeon with {{ICU}}. It is extremely unlikely that the author will come back within the required one week to fix the article. If you open a ballot on VFD, I will promptly be the second vote to delete this article. Spıke Ѧ 20:28 16-Mar-15

Thanks for the advice. It's now on VFD as requested. Let's nuke it! Chunkles (talk) 17:25, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

I like this. Is it ready for a feature nomination? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:14, March 24, 2015 (UTC)

Maybe not quite yet. I still want to clear up some stuff near the top that could be improved (like in the taxobox) and take care of some red links. But it's getting close! :) Chunkles (talk) 01:30, March 25, 2015 (UTC)

edit Jelly beans

I've seeded your article with token photos; do with them whatever you wish. Spıke Ѧ 02:32 13-Apr-15

Thank you, SPIKE! I'll see what I can do with them. Chunkles (talk) 03:19, April 13, 2015 (UTC)
I noticed that the number of beans shown in each image tended to increase. I decided to focus on that as a comedic element in my article. Thanks for the inspiration! Chunkles (talk) 23:18, April 16, 2015 (UTC)

Then you may have done what I did not (write funny stuff). The sequence could shed light on the sex life of jelly beans. Spıke Ѧ 00:04 17-Apr-15

edit Arthur (show)

The SERIES FINALE does something we warn against at UN:LIST — writes with lists whose main comedy strategy is to be absurdly long and include the kitchen sink. Indeed, Anon was by, two days ago, and decided that the lists would be even funnier if they were longer. I reverted him. You would avoid more of the same in the future if you would rewrite this to not have listiness be its main strategy. On the other hand, I don't know the show, and if you think his contribution added something other than bad writing, feel free to restore it, or do something in the middle or entirely different. Spıke Ѧ 22:56 19-Apr-15

I did not really notice Anon's "contribution" until you brought it to my attention; before that, all I did was a bit of minor cleanup on some inconsistent formatting when I stumbled upon this. I do agree that the lists are a bit long, but this could probably be salvaged if we somehow kept the funnier bits and trimmed out everything else. (I would also love to see the episode lists formatted more like Wikipedia's actual episode list tables, but I'm not aware of any templates which might help with this.) However, I haven't seen the show since grade school, although I did see it quite often. Perhaps at some point I should revisit some actual information on the show and get some ideas on how to fix it. Chunkles (talk) 06:11, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Solution Resulting Problem
This could be done with a Wikitable (coding example right here). But it strikes me that the entire episode list is a huge example of listcruft. It's an infinite opportunity for anonymous editors to add something absurd that might happen to the characters, with no obligation that they flesh out their concept, or better yet, cleverly relate it to something that did happen on the show. If you have a lot of time on your hands someday, you might take the five good ideas in this list and turn them into prose, then make everything else go away.
Spike the Dog (06b) Spıke Ѧ 12:17 20-Apr-15
Thanks for the input! I also noticed that Tom and Jerry already uses an episode table similar to what I'm thinking of for this article, so I will likely borrow code from that. Also, there's an actual list of Arthur episodes on Wikipedia, which should give some good ideas of what to stick with in terms of theme. I plan on chopping out the vast majority of the episodes (all the utterly irrelevant cruft), touch up the few that are left, and stick to just a few seasons for the tables, each with maybe 10 episodes apiece. Finally, I'll add in some stuff mentioning how many episodes there are per season, and additional columns for number in season / original air date (again, like what Wikipedia has) to hopefully discourage random additions by increasing the amount of work someone would have to do beyond being trivial (like it is now). Chunkles (talk) 22:54, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
One more thing, provided the above sounds like an acceptable plan: like you said, this might take some time before the renovation is complete. Is there a template or something I can stick into the article to "reserve" the section under my name until at least the new tables are in? Chunkles (talk) 22:58, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

Certainly not! Articles in mainspace, and sections thereof, are fair game, though I don't even think this Anon has the gumption to keep "helping" you. You can do any desired development on which you don't want help (or want help only by invitation) in your userspace, no matter what the page is called, and patch in your improvements at the end. Spıke Ѧ 23:04 21-Apr-15

The deed has been done. I think it looks a lot more clean/legit now, and a ton of utterly random garbage was removed. It's admittedly not perfect, but I think it's a huge step in the right direction. Chunkles (talk) 06:19, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

edit Recent creations

I see you editing there....Is anything substantial enough, and final enough, to merit inclusion on Recent Articles on the main page? "Rewrite" or new? Spıke Ѧ 01:19 17-May-15

Not really, at the moment. Just various edits and cleanup. Maybe Arthur (show) could appear as a "Rewrite", but only once I've worked some more on the character list, which is still kind of crufty. Chunkles (talk) 03:06, May 17, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, Arthur (show) is listed there now. Perhaps it could benefit from some fine polishing in a couple places, but I'm mostly done with it now. Feel free to tweak as necessary. At any rate, I sure had a lot of fun working on it! Chunkles (talk) 23:57, May 20, 2015 (UTC)

That is all that matters (if the reader might have comparable fun reading it!). Oh, I see {{Recent}} is open to editing by all veteran Uncyclopedians; I had assumed you might need my help. Nice to see that "Fart rape" is not the first thing that jumps out at the reader, though author Phrank Psinatra insists it is a new feminist concept. Separately, I dropped in and reviewed your brother's article, file under tough-love. Spıke Ѧ 00:09 21-May-15

I would just like to announce that I have managed to get my IRL brother, who goes by TacoCrack, here onto Uncyclopedia! His first page he's working on, User:TacoCrack/How The Grinch Stole Doomsday, is inspired by a Skype conversation he had with some friends, and could maybe find a home one day on UnBooks or UnPoetia. Chunkles (talk) 19:34, May 20, 2015 (UTC)

Fabulous! EStop also got an UnNews out of a shipmate! I think the place to note your relationship (assuming he wishes to acknowledge it too) is on youse's user pages. Perhaps we have a template box that notes that one Uncyclopedian is related to another. Spıke Ѧ 20:34 20-May-15

I undid your latest. The article in your userspace is almost ready for mainspace. (It's a little heavy on lists and excessive typography.) However, don't create a redirect from the main encyclopedia into userspace, or use Template:Recent to point to an article in userspace; but wait until you are ready to move your article into mainspace. Spıke Ѧ 15:33 25-May-15

Strange, I had already moved it into mainspace, I thought. Can you take another look? I'll see what I can do in the meantime about the lists and typography. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 15:38, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry! You had; I didn't see it. I thought Chuck E. Cheese linked back to userspace and deleted that, but have now restored it and made it point to the real article; also restored your edit at Template:Recent. Spıke Ѧ 15:41 25-May-15

Thanks! Sorry for any confusion caused. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 15:44, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

Any confusion caused was all on my end! Separately, though, regarding truth being stranger than fiction, when you link to the corporate website, you have ceased to write original fiction and begun to simply catalog how dopey the real character is, which in my opinion is not nearly as good (and when they do it with politicians and fire-and-brimstone ministers, becomes outright advocacy). Spıke Ѧ 20:46 25-May-15

To be fair, it's actually a fan-based website chronicling the franchise's history, and has no affiliation with the actual company as per their FAQ and footer disclaimer. However, I see your point, and I will remove the offending material to be replaced with something else. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 20:54, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the knockdown-and-salvage of this article! But it needs more work:

  • Intro doesn't read smoothly, including However...However; move aardvark/anthromorphism into Section 1
  • Ends abruptly?
  • A little of Plotline is the start of a possible History section.
  • No one like me who didn't watch the original show will survive the list of characters, and we will at most browse the list of episodes. I suggest more material on the show's "cultural significance," controversy, and so on, before these long lists.
  • I suppose the movie has to come later because of chronological order, but I'd put prose before the lists. Spıke Ѧ 16:43 7-Jun-15

Uncyclopedia articles are usually the singular. A link to bees should take the reader to Bee. Shall I mainspace your article on top of the current Bee, which is merely a redirect? (You could copypaste it, but I can do a destructive move that will keep your Change History.) Spıke Ѧ 14:40 14-Jun-15

Sure, that will work. I didn't want to mess up any redirects (especially to the featured Sun Bee article) until what I had was ready, but I guess it can stand on its own in mainspace now. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 14:46, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

Meh, maybe I overstepped my boundaries a little by graying out the voting boxes for the articles which were already deleted. I thought I was being helpful, but apparently otherwise. I will leave those alone in the future. :P Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 17:39, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, the proper sealing and disposal of VFD ballots is treated strictly, as it must coincide with moves on the articles themselves and their talk pages. EStop volunteered as Poopsmith, apart from separate confusion discussed elsewhere that I was asking for the page to be serviced immediately rather than with a delay for clarity. It is not inconceivable that, instead of removing those ballots to the archive pages, he just ungrayed them. Spıke Radiomicrophone19:14 14-Jul-15

If you mean the {{Taxobox}} template, I actually borrowed that in turn from...somewhere else. (Forgot where, exactly. But I first used it on mold.) But if you're doing an article on wasps, you may want to add the {{Bees}} navigation template at the bottom and join the growing hive. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 21:09, July 20, 2015 (UTC)

I made some revisions/additions to this article, what do you think of them? I added a bit more about the Zero Suit, and how it affected the public's perception of Samus. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not an SJW or anything, but I do find it humorous how people used to say she was "perhaps the most nonsexualized female character ever", yet now, whenever the topic of her comes up, it's always "Zero Suit Samus is an anime girl with nice tits and ass."--EpicWinner (talk) 01:15, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

I guess many of them were okay, particularly the character expansions. You had several weak jokes and red links I cleaned out, but overall not bad. Thanks for the contributions! Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 16:44, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

edit Exploding Testicles


I rescinded my nomination of this and you have the VFD Save. But see my note in the Change History: If there is such a word, the spelling would be "gonaditis" (inflammation of the gonad). Spıke Radiomicrophone16:59 15-Aug-15

Great! Also, thanks for the spelling change suggestion. I'll see if I can polish this up still further. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 17:19, August 15, 2015 (UTC)

We have now both been at work on Elephantiasis, me just now airing out a photo of Buster Gonad that was already on the website. (I have many back issues of Viz I can scan in if you need better illustrations.) It strikes me that the final section of this article is aimed at a specific, unnamed individual.

edit Template:Internet

Zana Dark has backed out her recent edits at UnBooks:The Complete Asshole's Guide to Time Travel (which I overrode her regarding listing on the website main page) and indicated on her user page that she has quit the website. (Again.) Therefore, regarding your objection on her talk page to merging {{Programming languages}} (which currently appears not to be called by any article) into {{Internet}}, you are free to separate them back out and give each the treatment it deserves. Spıke Radiomicrophone14:57 4-Sep-15

And indeed, I shall. Thanks! Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 15:51, September 4, 2015 (UTC)

Damn, whirlwind editing today. Spıke Radiomicrophone16:20 4-Sep-15

I think I'm borderline OCD on cleaning/organizing things. That, and I'm a little bored ATM. Feeling good about it, though. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 16:22, September 4, 2015 (UTC)

So am I! A quibble to your note on the template's talk page: As of about ten weeks ago (coinciding with the user name merge with Wikia), I have been allowed to elbow out 2006 Uncyclopedian Spike (no edits), so my user name is no longer in all capitals. Spıke Radiomicrophone16:40 4-Sep-15

Okay, thanks for letting me know! Not sure how I never noticed that. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 01:20, September 5, 2015 (UTC)

edit Boston Red Sox

Thanks for patrolling the website! Anon did not add a red-link here, but a blue-link to a page he had created. Unfortunately, it was his second attempt to imitate Justin Beeber with an article about something totally unremarkable but easily mistaken for the "famous one." The first one (Tom Brady) actually had a See also to Beeber. They were nowhere near as good as Beeber and I deleted them. Spıke Radiomicrophone23:18 7-Sep-15

No problem! Glad I could help. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 23:24, September 7, 2015 (UTC)

edit Windows 10

Good start, but it strikes me as Windows 10 as viewed by a Unix user, which is comparable to Windows 10 as viewed by an Amish gentleman who has never owned a PC and doesn't know what all the fuss is. That is, the comedy strategy partly depends on the irrelevance to the article writer and is not as good as on-point comedy. You do cover the privacy implications of Cortana, but I was hoping for a treatment of Microsoft's more breathtaking privacy violations: its newsmaking willingness to analyze your use of your own PC and take the initiative to delete your files if it should get the notion that you are not entitled to have copies; also its clear intention to move everyone to a subscription model in which your personal property breaks if you don't pay your annual dues (covered only indirectly in my Metadata). See if you think more development is warranted, cheers! Other observations:

  • Phrasing like "Microsoft was fully aware" gets non-encyclopedic in reporting on the mindset of a subject, a corporation no less. Focus on what happened (providing your own rationale if you like), but don't tell us what anyone was thinking.
  • Starting with the return of the Start menu, the article gives the feeling that reporting on Windows 10 is competing with cracking wise about Windows 10. A comedy strategy might be that, with every new version of Windows, Microsoft breaks stuff that worked previously, until it becomes a selling feature for the new version that it unbreaks stuff that was previously broken.
  • When we get to "The Start menu now has a "Most Used Apps" list on the left side," this reads like a User's Manual not a satire. Even if this level of detail helps bring the uninformed reader along, it packs no comedy punch.

I hope that helps! Spıke Radiomicrophone02:20 15-Sep-15

Hi Spike, thanks for the feedback! Once I clear out some university homework backlog, I will revisit the article and see about implementing the requested changes. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 19:44, September 15, 2015 (UTC)

edit The Joy of Killing on VFH

This is backwards to the way we do it here, because it forces the reader to guess your comedy strategy before he can read your comedy. Move to The Joy of Painting, don't really need the redirect at all, start the page with {{Title|The Joy of Killing}} so that's what it says it is, once you get the reader inside. Also: Needs some proofreading; for instance, it doesn't keep a consistent line on what the title of the show even is. Spıke Radiomicrophone01:57 21-Sep-15

PS--Thanks for the re-casting. EpicWinner mostly to the rescue on the proofreading. One big improvement, given that it will appear on the main page, is to end the Intro in a way that packs a bigger comedy punch than does inventing one of our more contrived acronyms (RAMBo). Spıke Radiomicrophone23:25 21-Sep-15

edit User:Sebagomez/McDonald's

Thanks for accepting my invitation to merge in material from the original edition, but the stuff you picked is awful. Its thesis is that the customer and the burger-flipper see the same events differently (because both are morons). This could be funny, but both sections descend into vulgar rants and the first does so with a horribly long list. This verbal comic book doesn't fit into an article set out as though it were a factual view of the corporation and its marketing. The specific funny parts might fit. Spıke Radiomicrophone10:29 6-Oct-15

Yuck, sounds like I really missed the mark this time. :P Perhaps some rewriting of those sections is in order. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 06:51, October 8, 2015 (UTC)

edit Drake of the 99 dragons

Would it possible for you to add some content to this article I created? I have to admit, I'm not that good a comedy writer; editing is more my forte.--EpicWinner (talk) 08:29, October 8, 2015 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I've been a bit busy lately, compounded with the fact that I'm not at all familiar with this video game. Have you perhaps considered submitting your article to Pee Review? Perhaps another editor could give you detailed feedback there on how you can further improve it. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 18:38, October 9, 2015 (UTC)

edit Arthur (show)

When I edited this article, I aimed to removed some of the more cringeworthy/forced jokes and memes. For example: "they are the same people who write episodes of Rugrats, so many people just snicker and throw stones at them", Crazy Bus/Justin Bieber (overused), "Arthur characters appeared in Animal Crossing". Those just feel very random and done by a 14 year old. However, most of my edits were reverted. Can I have another go at it?--EpicWinner (talk) 23:49, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

I disagree, because 1) I do not feel these jokes were overused or random in this context, and 2) this article is now featured, and probably should not be altered at this point except for minor corrections. The article has already been through a massive cleanup process before and during its nomination, and is certainly in a much better condition now than when I first came across it (feel free to review its history, but don't say I didn't warn you). If you feel you still must make changes, you can either come up with an alternate article for the show or ask Spike if he agrees that modifications can be made. But as of right now, I still fail to see the issues with it. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 04:12, October 12, 2015 (UTC)
If you ask Spike, you will find out that Epic's insistence on putting his footprint on any article he sees fit--not just cleaning it up but usually embarking on different comedy strategies--ignoring rules that were here before I was, and ignoring my warnings, are the reason he keeps getting banned. It's a relief that he is asking before reasserting his edits this time, because my response would have been another one. Childish jokes in an article about a children's show are not remarkable, and you can find blemishes on any page. Spıke Radiomicrophone12:20 12-Oct-15

edit Samus article

This article is very poor. Since you did such a great rewrite of the Metroid article, would it be possible for you to hack at this one? There are other versions on foreign Uncycs; is there some kind of translator that can bring them over?--EpicWinner (talk) 03:36, October 24, 2015 (UTC)

I will see what I can do, free time permitting. I think grabbing a translated version from another version of Uncyclopedia was just a one-time deal suggested for McDonald's. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 03:56, October 24, 2015 (UTC)

It was in fact the author deciding to translate his Spanish-language article himself and bring it here. Grabbing from foreign Uncyclopedias might provide a starting point, but so much gets lost in translation (which Google is all right at) that it leaves a lot of work to do. Spıke Radiomicrophone04:59 8-Nov-15

edit Rouge the Bat

Yes, I'd like to create this article; however, it's been locked by an administrator. Can you get someone to unlock it?--EpicWinner (talk) 04:19, November 8, 2015 (UTC)

He can't but I moved it into mainspace. Spıke Radiomicrophone04:58 8-Nov-15

edit Crash

Since you're great at video game articles, would it be possible for you to write a much-needed Crash Bandicoot article?--EpicWinner (talk) 04:49, November 19, 2015 (UTC)

I'm a big Metroid fan, but I'm not very familiar with Crash Bandicoot. Combined with some IRL stuff going on right now, I doubt I'll get to it. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 21:21, November 19, 2015 (UTC)

edit Samus Aran

I'm fine with you re-adding the infobox, but I personally believe it doesn't add much humor. Also: would it be possible for you to re-write the "In video games" section detailing Samus's history? I sporked it from a foreign Uncyc but it's rather unfinished.--EpicWinner (talk) 15:00, November 20, 2015 (UTC)

I am pleased that EpicWinner is finally talking to other Uncyclopedians, but he is still editing not so much to make anything funny as to let everyone know he is on-site. So, Chunkles, I agree with your decision not to bother writing an Edit Summary when reverting him here, as one of his Edit Summaries was "lazily sporking material from foreign site," and you did tell him why you reverted the addition of a second {{Wikipedia}} where it didn't belong in SQL. Unfortunately, the time you spend giving him lessons he is uniquely unwilling to learn, is time not spent weaving your art. I am on the edge on giving him the weekend off. Spıke Radiomicrophone15:02 20-Nov-15
Spike, your reply is like a breath of fresh air to me. FWIW, I did post a reply to his above message on the conversation started on his talk page, where it should have continued at. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 15:13, November 20, 2015 (UTC)
He inserted the video-game stuff a third time despite your patient explanation. He is gone for three days. Spıke Radiomicrophone15:37 20-Nov-15
Thank you, Spike. I was at wit's end with him. I hope he learns his lesson this time (though as you pointed out earlier, I wouldn't count on it). Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 16:39, November 20, 2015 (UTC)
I have few opinions on this article itself, as I don't know the subject, but the long bit of Japanese at the start, and the absurdly long acronym at the end, seem to have no point except the "comedy" of deliberately bad writing, which can always be mistaken for simply bad writing. And I don't know what Sen. Lieberman is doing in the article; he is now gone, and I don't remember him as an anti-porn crusader or having a sex scandal. Eliot Spitzer or Anthony "Carlos Danger" Weiner do have sex scandals, and the latter has a wife who is Hillary Clinton's chief adviser. At any rate, the plural in "For the childrens" simply portrays the politician as a fool, as opposed to having a point based on real life. Spıke Radiomicrophone16:50 20-Nov-15
I can remove that, if you want. It's stuff left over from an earlier stage of this article's life cycle, and I agree it doesn't really seem to fit anymore. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 17:07, November 20, 2015 (UTC)
The Japanese, apparently a fanboy wisecrack, was in-character for the article, but there is nothing like a long run of foreign-language humor before the first real joke to convince the reader the page won't be worth his time. Carry on! Spıke Radiomicrophone17:30 20-Nov-15
