edit Welcome!

Hello, ICameHereInACloche, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there... no, a little more to your left... yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

If you read anything at all, make it the above three links. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia or need more help with something, try these:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date.

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but it certainly is a fun and easy way to express your creativity. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:ICameHereInACloche/Article about stuff) so you can edit it at your leisure. If you decide to create it in the cold world of mainspace, make sure it is in accordance with the policies laid out above, and if you're not done put the "Work-In-Progress" template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

If the current colonization doesn't suit your fancy, then browse our rewrite and idea categories. We have lots of articles just sitting around for someone to improve, so don't be afraid - dive right in!

If you need help, ask me on my talk page, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talk page. Additionally, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. Again, welcome!  ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 07:36, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

edit Name

I like your user name! I see you have been contributing since your arrival. Is your cloche a hat or a bell? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 10:12, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

It's a bell-shaped hat.--ICameHereInACloche 01:52, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

edit Your article

I have moved it here because the maintenance template on it had expired but I think it has real potential. Feel free to continue working on it in your userspace and simply move it back to mainspace when you're finished up. If you have any questions then you can ask them on my talk page and I'll do my best to help you out. --ChiefjusticeGameCube 13:16, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I've just had real life to contend with. I'll finish it. Thanks!--ICameHereInACloche 19:35, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

edit Hi

Just wanted to say hi, and welcome to the neighbourhood. Beyond that I have nothing else to say. So, er, bye, I guess. Pup 10:25 08 Feb '12

edit Happy monkey

Happymonkey2012 To uncyclopedia. Im glad you are participating in the happy monkey competition. dont forget to send a topic to happymonkeycompetition@gmail.com

Ill paste the topic given to you on your talk page here, tomorrow when the tournament starts! --ShabiDOO 19:18, February 10, 2012 (UTC)

edit Your happy monkey topic

Happymonkey2012

Your topic my dear ICameHereInACloche is: High school football players of Indian descent .

  1. Write the article on your namespace
  2. I'll be judging the articles based on creativity, originality and cleverness.
  3. Good luck, you have until tomorrow night (23.59 UTC, 6:59PM ET) to finish.

(happy monkey just stunk up your bathroom...sorry)

edit Happy monkey

Hey I came here, how is it going? I've formatted your article a little bit, as this is your first contest and you ended up with topic that isn't super easy to say the least. I've added a generic image and put some title bars in the article.

You should probably upload some images here and replace the name of the file I put in the code on your article page, and put a clever caption there. Id recommend getting two or three relevant images. Remember, the image doesn't have to illustrate the action of the article, but could also symbolise it, make fun of it, make the article absurd...etc.

[images.google.com] is a great place to search for images. Donwload the image, upload it here and your article will be spiffy in no time. I won't be the least bit offended if you reverse all of my edits, and you should probably change my edits to reflect how you see your article in terms of images and title bars.

Have fun. Im judging based on creativity, cleverness and originality, and I already see a lot of that. Remeber, try to be funny and not just goofy, if you write a joke thats expected or thats been done a lot or high school humour stuff, thats fine, thats great, but find a clever way to add it, make a meaningful change to it. I'm sure youll do great.

edit Changed thing

If you comment it out then things like sigs from 4 tildes (~~~~) don't work properly. Same effect with the open div but more effective. Mind you, there are admins who will hate this. Pup 03:24 14 Feb '12

If you insist. 03:59, February 14, 2012 (UTC)


edit Hey you....nOOb guy...listen up

2012HappyMonkey2nd It is totally awsome ... man ... you are just a lowly nOOb and yet you won SECOND place ... with two judges tying you for 1st and two judges scoring you as first. Incredible work ... super creative and original article and a guarenteed featured article. CONGRATULATIONS !!! --ShabiDOO 04:36, February 20, 2012 (UTC)


edit He thought you were a noob, heeheehee, and awesome page

Hello, and I was hoping to tie your page in the contest and wouldn't have been at all surprised if you had won. Very good work, as is the testimony on your user page which I just read. I was gone through much of 2011, so missed your pages, and have enjoyed reading them. Thanks for keeping Happy Monkey alive too, although I wish the real Happy Monkey would play someday. I look forward to voting for your page on VFH after we all polish our work (Shabidoo's pee reviews were a work of art, 16 of them in a short amount of time!). Aleister 12:10 20-2-'12

I forgot to mention how much I like your name. I had to look up what Cloche means, and was happily educated. Aleister 23:22 20-2-'12
Why thank you! Seems like there are still people who appreciate a good hat.--I am here in a loch 23:58, February 20, 2012 (UTC)

edit Vote

Hello, and please, feel free to vote against the homophone page, and nobody holds things like that against anybody except Lyeritya. Vote as you wish whenever you wish, uncyclopedia has freedom of speech and freedom to vote. And nomming your own page is fine, and is actually excouraged, as long as you know for sure that it's ready and it's of feature quality. And feel free to ask me any questions about my article, it is a layered piece and I'm very proud of some sections of it (particuarly the anti-war section). BB did that great tatochop of Richard Simmons as an homocell phone. Anyway, if I had my way your page would beat mine to feature, for yours deserved the win as much as mine did. And I like what you did to the talk link on your signature. Yay ICHIAC! Aleister 16:59 26-2-'12

By the way, did you know some idiot put your page up for feature vote? You may or may not be done with it yet, but you have time to edit it while it's on the feature que. Aleister 23:01 26-2-'12
Thanks. Thanks a bunch. Although, what was the main idea of your article? It'd make me understand it much more.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 23:13, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
Doesn't usually work like that. People vote (hopefully) on the merit of the article alone. Grabbing backstory, or getting clarification, shouldn't be part of it. Having said that, the article has two main thrusts (haha). Homophone is a gramattical term meaning two words with similar sound with different meaning. (Like where and wear.) Also can be taken to mean a gay phone. Pup 11:39 26 Feb '12
In truth, I was expecting the article to be a bunch of corny puns. I was pleasantly surprised, and still confused.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 23:44, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
I am usually pleasantly surprised and confused. Nature of the beast. The article is an epic sweep of history as it relates to telephones and the gay culture. It starts out with Alexander Graham Bell and goes all the way into the future, dragging gayness kicking and screaming with it. History on the doorstep of sick humour. Or vica versa. Stick with me, I'll take you on some wild rides. Aleister 1:23 27-2-'12
Interesting... view in life you have there. Something completely unrelated, have you ever watched a really good film or read a really good book and then start to actually want to do something good with your writing? Because that's how I feel now. At times, I feel as though the writing I do wouldn't be proper for this site, since I'm much more of a fictional writer than a satirical one.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 03:39, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
It would certainly be a lot more rewarding financially to write a movie, but what about the love? The love of being poor and still, giving away to a website! That's something to write on your resume grave! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 04:11, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
That's not my view, it was the damn topic handed me. That's what's good about the Happy Monkey Contest, it pulls the writing out of you. Watching the Academy Awards, and clapping whenever "Hugo" wins something. This site, have you looked at the rules of uncyclopedia? There are only three. But your comment pertains to the third one - "Dance like you've never danced before." And you know what? People should be banned when they break that rule for too long. Funnybony told me that this site is a playground for adults. It's a total playground, pertaining to writing. You can do something so serious here that your intellect can sail, and then go back and edit the thing and put some funny into it. Or add it in while you're writing. But the key is to edit and polish and polish and edit. Sometimes. Whoops, best actor award is on. Aleister 4:14 27-2-'12
Yeah! This is a playground, and regardless of whether my writing's better for a bunch of circlejerking neckbeards, my mind is scrambled up like jelly after mixed with paint thinner and rat skulls in a blender for an hour and no one wants to see the frothy mixture of that accumulated filth gushing out my eyes and running out my ears and into a computer screen except the wonderful people here, so I'm staying here for my writing needs.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 04:58, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
If not you will be banned for violation of Rule Three. The Artist won best picture, I was hoping for Hugo, but it picked up some good awards. Must go soon, have many things to do. Aleister 5:04 27-2-'12
There is a certain element of free-form prose and flexibility here that allows your writing ability to go in odd directions. I used to write more encyclopaedic stuff but read more comedy. I came here to develop my comedy writing skills, and was intending to go on from here to do romance writing. Never got around to that bit. It is a playground, but even in the playground there are those that stand on the monkey bars, and those that play on the swings. And who decided that tan bark was suitable flooring for a playground? Pup 09:24 27 Feb '12
You... doing romance? I would pay a pretty penny to read that.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 20:52, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
I've had a few previous writing styles. I've written technical stuff, motivational essays, Christian essays, plays, short stories for teens, fantasy short story, and erotica. I've had a few bits and pieces published as well - sadly mostly the Christian stuff, but a play I wrote was short-listed for an award. I've lost most of my old writing over time. I actually started an erotica piece again not long ago, but I had to stop it - after writing here for so long I kept wanting to put fart jokes in it. Pup 11:39 27 Feb '12
Actually, UnScripts:Steal Bank Customer Service training video was based very closely on training material I actually wrote for new employees at a bank. More of that is accurate than people would believe. Pup 11:46 27 Feb '12
From what you talk about your writing experience, you seem like a true renaissance man, albeit one that does erotica. I'm just a jerk with a computer. Maybe it'd be fun to do an erotica piece that affectionately satirizes the tropes and conventions found in erotica and porn. Anyways, best of luck to you. I have no plans of getting any of my writing published, I just do it for shits and giggles. Also, cool article!--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 23:50, February 27, 2012 (UTC)
I write for the fun of writing too. Being published is a nice side effect. I've wondered about doing a Mills & Boon satire in the past. Might have to revisit that idea. Pup 11:56 27 Feb '12
Have you every posted any of the stories you've done in the past to Uncyclopedia? The story I'm working right now is based on an old high school assignment I had on character archetypes.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 00:06, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

edit Indian football

Hi. I saw you voted against your page, so obviously I put it on VFH too quickly without asking you. When it's polished-edited it will have the votes of all the naysayers as well - including you! And thanks for your comments about my homophone page, I worked on it from your original comments too. And judging from the above we can have an erotica contest, with Puppy leading the way. Or an erotica collab, which could be a swamp. Aleister 00:45 28-2-'12

An Uncyc erotica comp. I'm terrified by the concept. Pup 12:56 28 Feb '12
My hips are moving on their own! Couldn't resist.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 03:01, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, your article, is about to have the construction tag removed in 3 days. Just giving a little heads up. :) -- UserTalkContributions 18:46, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

edit Nuclear semiotics

I've done a minor bit of proofreading on it. I wish I'd had a chance to review this, but I was beaten to it. It's fantastic. I'm a little bugged by the barrel image though. The trefoil symbol should be in the middle of the barrel, or at least not overlapping the two sections. The word should wrap around a little more. I'm being nitpicky here, but I know what it's like to work on something like this to look at it after it was featured and say "I wish I had just..."

One other thing that I thought of when reading this and the corresponding WP page - the curse of Tutankhamen. When they opened the tomb they were actually able to read the curse details. And they barely paused.                               Puppy's talk page12:10 19 Mar

Thanks. I'm not very good with image manipulation, so it didn't really end up very well. The hole (which was supposed to be a stand-in for Yucca mountain) was meant to be more about the dangers of miscommunication. The weird mutations were supposed to be a SCIENCE! version of the effects of radiation. Again, thanks for the proofreading. Always one error that's left...--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 04:58, March 19, 2012 (UTC)
I figured it was something along the lines of Yucca mountain. The one element (from WP) that wasn't directly in your article was the "technical difficulty in getting there" part. Ignoring the fact that landscape changes over time, if there is a way to get somewhere, human beings will do it given enough time. It's part of who we are. The flowers idea I thought was actually just your invention until I read the WP version. How much did these guys get paid?                               Puppy's talk page05:36 19 Mar
I seem to have forgotten to include that part. Maybe an idea for a future article? I focused more on the semantic part of the concept than the more physical parts, which may be my undoing.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 05:44, March 19, 2012 (UTC)
I don't know you can say "undoing" when it's about to be featured.                               Puppy's talk page05:52 19 Mar

edit Wait, wut?

You can't do that! What about the prince's hair?! Did he ever get his kingdom back?! What about the wizard?! And do the king's handlers get eaten by the dragon!? What the hell! You may have come here in a cloche, but you shall leave here in a box of Assian stone! Get back here, you! I say! ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Apr 23 '12 6:39 (UTC)

I'm taking a break. Don't worry, I'll be back.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 22:00, April 23, 2012 (UTC)

edit High school football players of Indian descent

I love this article! It reminds me of an article I'm thinking on writing, you can help out too or tell me what you think of its title:

Skateboarders of Polish descent. Like it, no? Welcome to the machine MATTHLOCK 20:27, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

I've been elsewhere. This site depresses me. It's like a dank basement forty feet underground and fourteen years permanently behind in humor.--CameHereInACloche (Talk) 02:02, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
