  • Comment All featured images (except ones that get dropped via PFP) get a permanent spot in the image rotation, so even after they've actually been "featured" they'll appear on the front page every now and then. So yeah, there is a point, though the concern that the image might be featured a bit too soon after the article is valid. —rc (t) 20:55, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

I had originally scanned it for my myspace a long time ago (because calvin and hobbes is one of my favorite comics and I'm an atheist) and thought it would be funny here." Not sure how much of it was scanned and edited since then and whatnot (Like, if the head just got stuck on now, it's probably original enough). I believe all the other images in the article are original though. --monika 21:03, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

An American's Conception of Africa

Africa is widely agreed to be Earth's shittiest continent. For one thing, the land is wracked with hunger, poverty, disease, and genocide. It is also caked in shit. Not a pleasant place, all things considered. It is perhaps an omen that humans migrated out of Africa as soon as they could. As these migrants formed powerful civilizations in Europe, Asia, and (somehow) the Americas, the people of Africa remained primitive. Maybe it was the heat. Heat does make you lethargic, after all. The African people paid for their technological tardiness when the White Man (boo!) arrived. European slave drivers invaded Africa's shores, uprooting villages, destroying ecosystems, and throwing an entire race of people into centuries of bondage. Just think of it as the moment Africa "jumped the shark", so to speak. The continent still struggles today to overcome the repurcussions of European colonialism. Even after decades of progress, there is still widespread famine, disease, and strife. But hey, you can't blame their corrupt leaders for not trying, right? Right? Well, maybe you can.

Comment Please explain how this is a Jesus joke. More than anything it's a Pontius Pilate joke. If you read the article, you'll see I make fun of Pontius Pilate for letting the wrong guy get killed. In fact, I got the idea for the article whilst at a Good Friday service. Not even kdding. -- http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/8/88/Tinymooose.gif » Sir Savethemooses Grand Commanding Officer ... holla atcha boy» 20:13, 23 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Fro MORE WITH THE JESUS JOKES! I think the thing that should be added is from the article: "Thankfully for its users, the file would miraculously reappear three days later, after descending to the Recycle Bin." Also to explain the joke, the file is named Jesus.chr (Jesus Christ) and the user of the Pontius Pilot (the man who sent Jesus to his death) is deleting the file and leaving the Barabbus file (just as Pilate did)... IMO, it is great, and if you are truly satirists and this is a satire website then ALL subjects should be fine to parody, not just SOME. If someone here was a Scientologist and saw my last featured image, they would no doubt say it was offensive and that it made fun of their beliefs and although I am Christian and find this image making light of my religion's savior, the overall irony and topicality of the image wins my vote over offensiveness because EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE OFFENDED BY SOMETHING HERE, WHY SHOULD WE PICK AND CHOOSE WHAT WILL BE OFFENSIVE? Not to mention that it's funny naming it the "Pontius Pilot" -- LinkTheGameFreak Bitch here19:51, 23 April 2006 (UTC)
    • Comment Nobody has said they find it offensive. The objections have been 1) "I don't get the joke," 2) size issues and 3) Jesus jokes are getting old on Uncyclopedia (and let's face it, we've had more than our share). —rc (t) 20:15, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Rebuttal: First of all, let's tone down the vitriol here. I apologize for mine, as well. Yes, Uncyclopedia is flooded with iPod images. But that's not the issue here. The issue is whether or not this image deserves to be featured based on its intrinsic comedic value (or so I have always thought.) Personally, I voted against this image because it, like all other iPod derivatives, is in no way humorous to me. No matter how well-done the pic has been, the "funny" has never been there for me. So yes, it is a great pic, but I didn't laugh. I groaned, not only because it's not funny to me, but also because I've already seen it. Many, many times. There's few things as irritating as hearing the same unfunny joke told over and over (i.e. "Git-R-Done!" *ZAP!*) It's turning into an extrapolation exercise that, for my money, is vastly inferior to the likes of MST3K's "Wiffle obsession" bumper ("Wiffle underpants, Wiffle roach motel, Wiffle Claude Aiken!" What, no iWiffle???) Then again, that's just me, and I don't presume to speak for anyone else. --The King In Yellow (Talk to the Dalek.) 17:54, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

  • For: Are you people nuts, this is one of the best images to come through VFP in ages. Let's do a quick analysis, shall we: That's obviously John Wilkes Booth in the Ford Theater, he's shooting a dinosaur, a freakin' dinosaur, and the edit is of high enough quality that the dinosaur doesn't look out of place. Oh, I almost forgot, when John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, he shouted "Sic semper tyrannis!", COULD YOU POSSIBLY GET A BETTER PLAY ON WORDS THAN THAT?!

Polar bears are often mistaken for bloodthirsty predators due to the messes they make while eating raspberries.

*ACK!!! You really have to read the article to have an appreciation for the pic. It's supposed to be a crappy, obvious photoshop job, that's what makes it funny.
