HILARIOUS!!! I expected to find something on the flying under the influence today (or "flying towards the stars, drunk" as a news presentator put it), but Thomas Edison is worth it... thanks to the author!-- 20:34, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Douche bag should be added in regards to all the others like Tesla he screwed over. Apple13 (talk) 04:31, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

no it shouldn't User:Frosty/sig3 04:32, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
Do you have a reason why it should be added? Apple13 (talk) 04:33, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
lol, I don't because I don't think it should be added. What's funny about calling someone a douche? User:Frosty/sig3 04:35, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
Well that it is basically what the article is calling him without saying it so why not just spell it out clear as day? Apple13 (talk) 04:22, September 16, 2012 (UTC)
Because spelling it out makes it unfunny. For instance:
A horse walks into a bar. The barman asks "Why the long face".
Is funnier than:
A horse with a long face, because horses have long faces, walks into a bar. The barman, noticing the horse has a long face, asks "Why the long face?"
Overdoing a joke kills it. Humour 101. User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3
