This article appears to be corrupt --MarkHudson 07:57, 9 Mar 2005 (EST)

Absolutely. --TheTris 07:59, 9 Mar 2005 (EST)

Wow man. That's deep. --Chronarion 09:02, 9 Mar 2005 (EST)

But is it corrupted...absolutely? - Haranator

I am rolling back edits that make it less funny --Chronarion 00:24, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)

We seem to be plagued by people who think that the whole point of uncyclopedia is to make edits so that things lose all humour value.-- 04:26, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)

I think they're from wikipedia.. fact trolls.--Chronarion 13:19, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)

I think we can corrupt this more. Anyone got images we can use? --Flammable 05:58, 29 Jul 2005 (UTC)

It could use some of those square characters you get when looking at pages in another langugage such as Japanese. --IMBJR 06:39, 29 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Well I added a square character, but it now looks like a ? under Firefox. --IMBJR 14:01, 29 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I don't get it. --Savethemooses 22:59, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

It got too corrupt, so I rved a bit. --Chronarion 21:45, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

This is like one of those universal constants that resist change. You heard about those? Theyre quantum. BertusVanZyl 07:41, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)


You know what? I seriously think this would be much better as an Undictionary entry instead. A two-word article just isn't an article. --L 02:56, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

I think it'd be way too subtle for an Undictionary entry. Besides, Undictionary entries don't have talk pages that'd help the stupider of us get the joke.

Dead-end status[edit]

Would it be possible to add an internal link to get the article off the Dead-end page ? 06:21, 10 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Corrupted Image[edit]

Yeah I used to have one for the Cursed Page series ... it's been moved to other wikis but if somebody wants to they can grab the cursed PNG file from there and re-upload it for use with Absolute Power as long as I still get credit for it. I'm not taking blame however, for re-uploading a file that's been deleted. --Nerd42 01:43, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC)


I think it'd be funnier if we had loads of pictures of people comitting crimes and cruel and unusual pornography, and then have the corrupted "corrupts absolutely" at the bottom. Maybe all the pictures could have the face of a wielder of absolute power on them (the same one, because that would be funnier). That wouldn't be safe for work though... --Carlos the Mean 03:38, 9 Nov 2005 (UTC)

WTF?! Why is this locked?[edit]

This is a wiki! Why is it locked?! Of course it will occasionally be vandalized but that will be corrected.

dude, I'm still pretty new but I don't get it. not sure if my email's workig but if so, and there's an injoke here, lemme know. CodeRedColaWar Conformity crisis 05:50, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
There's a rather famous phrase that goes a little something like, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely." --Sir gwax (talk) Signuke.gif 20:09, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
Taking this further... We could put a obvious reference/link to something/one corrupted, like George "I love the Iraqis" Bush or worse. Wikipedia. ;) --Fugazza 17:48, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

New Frog[edit]

Seen heading for as us, all prepare. To die.

This article rocks[edit]

I love linguistic treats like these, pun, non-sequiters, double entendres--Witt, Union leader.gif of Union member.gif UNion Entertain me* 00:23, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Is absolute power that thing people always put on their foreheads after they throw up magic beans of might?

This article pebbles[edit]

If anyone knows how to mess around with scripts, I reckon this page could do with things like a corrupted Uncyc logo, shuffling of tabs, etc. It's just not corrupted absolutely enough - at the moment even absolutely powerless Nihilism is more corrupted! --Strange.PNG (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 20:04, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Technically, it should be[edit]

Absolute power, given that it's not a proper noun. That's how Wikipedia would do it, anyway… seeing this article in a list, I thought for a moment the name was a riff on Real Ultimate Power. — 02:50, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

General Comments[edit]

I like the article. However, there are two issues. The first one, relatively uncontroversial, is the title. Perhaps a move to Absolute power is in order? Secondly, let's take advantage of that magic CSS and JS. Perhaps additional corruption is in order? Any thoughts, leave them here. GOSHZILLaDISGUSTING UNFUNNY NONSENSE 20:05, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

what i don't understand is why it has to be written in leet....
