Many thanks for voting for me as Writerie of ThE Ear. These things mean a lot to me.

Indeed, I recall the words of my old dad, who said:

Son, writing is just like shooting. You aim, you shoot, you watch the rodent explode and then you wander home with a strange feeling of regret. And you know what? ... He was totally wrong.

And thanks especially for your comments. Win or lose - I am genuinely gratified by them. --Sir Hardwick Fundlebuggy (Bleat) 14:35, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

EdgarAllenPo -> EdgarAllenPo2[edit]


I did an edit with EdgarAllenPo and named it Image:EdgarAllanPo2.jpg take a look and let me know if it improved the image or not. I took away some of the sharper edges and blended the shaded areas to be more in line with the background. If I miss the mark, then I need to get the image deleted. Anyway, I respect your opinion, and it is a clever pun. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 22:03, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Unfortunately it would be easier to just start over, that way you'd have all of the detail of each layer (the "oval" was probably the border of a frame, so when you fixed the antenna, it would still appear "outside" that oval. In effect you've accidentally replaced one technical error with another. Don't worry, it happens a lot. The secret with technical errors is to hide them well enough that no one notices). My main problem with the pic is, while it's a good pun, it's not well done (the edges of the head, in particular. You can still see Poe's chin. I'd drop the Teletubby a bit lower and rotate left 10 or 15 degrees, which wouldn't be technically correct, but it would hide Poe's neck. Alternately, colour Poe's neck the same as the teletubby either the "face" colour (make sure to eliminate the edge between the two Poes) or the "neck" colour. Lastly, the original chop has a lopsided head; they shaved a bit off the left side of the Teletubby's chin/cheek (right side of photo), but didn't do it on the left.
Hope this helps.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:20, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. And I really want to stress the the thank you part. I do the best with the skills that I have, and I do appreciate the time that you take on on helping me. I did go back up and cleaned more of it up though. Have you found a drummer yet for the Uncyclopedia Family band? Who will manage us? Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 03:36, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
I'd never really chopped pics before I joined Uncyc...and my first retouched pic wasn't until the first Poo Lit. Just to show you how far I've come, this was my first 'chop (memory is hazy, but I think the original had stuff on the table, and a poster on the wall). Horrid as it sounds; practice makes perfect. Or at least provides the veneer of perfection. Also it does give you an eye for technical errors (which is good for the people on Reefer Desk, but bad for everyone on VFP).
The biggest thing with 'chopping is just tinkering around with whatever application you use. You could read the instructions, but that's no fun at all (computer tutorials make me die a little inside). You can do quite a bit with a few pics and some time, if you remember the easy way to do whatever. Normally what happens is you figure out the easy way sometime after you did whatever the hard way.
I'm pretty sure that Tooltroll will be our studio musician, as the last instrument I played was the ukelele. I made it sound good, granted (you haven't lived until you've heard an eight and a half minute electric ukelele solo, with whammy bar and wawa pad plus metal hair and plastic pants), but he did make ‎The Uncyclopedian's Song.
Good work on the retouch of a retouch; you're still better off to start over, if for no other reason than for the experience (that particular Poe pic is everywhere, and the teletubbies are, well, famous 'n' stuff).--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:48, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

It's a good twist on the poster and a good chop, but it's fighting the fact that Uncle Sam never did that (or, at least the Sam that I picture in my head never did). There are some cliches that can't be messed with, simply because the prototype is so powerful (the Coca-cola version of Santa Claus is probably the best example, pasty Jesus is another). Maybe parody a different set of recruitment/propaganda posters...the old Brit "It's a man's life..." ones (or "Loose lips sink Death Stars", maybe) probably have more artistic wiggle room, though they may be a bit obscure.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:28, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

You're not the only one. As for Dreamvaders; try "From Death Star to Music Star" (or Pop Star) and have one vader out front and some backup singers or a chorus of people with Vader helmets . And while you've tried to make the same Vader pic look different by stretching/squishing the same pic, it's tough to pull off w/o making it look warped (rather than fat or thin). It's more work, but you could probably find nearly sequential Vader screencaps on teh internets. This way you'd get multiple Vaders in similar (but not identical positions), like choreographed moves that aren't quite in sync. Also, avoid GIFs, when possible. They're bulky (and, depending on the colour depth, can make things look like shit). PNG is better, JPGs are good too (but subject to artifacting around high contrast areas). I stick to JPGs, but save as PNG sometimes when the pic has text.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:12, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Idea: One Vader, with backup singers in Stormtrooper helmets.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:41, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Now that is doable. But would that be Dreamvaders, or would that be more akin to an Imperial Startrooper Donnie and Marie morale show? Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 17:02, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Super-extra special VFP Challenge[edit]

Note: looking at the pic now, I'm thinking that my challenge may be sullied somewhat by an unfortunate technical error (I'm sure that there was a good reason why I did it, but it's from July and I have a hard enough time remembering what I had for breakfast).

Interesting theory, but no, that's not it. A cursory google search will reveal a mix; sometimes middle over third, third over middle, or side by side. this or this.

It would be serendipity, but no. I'm thinking now that it's only obvious to me because I made the inside joke of one, if you will.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:10, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

A smattering of tepid applause[edit]

The gold in the drawing probably messed up the joke (I think I used it as a mask to save time, but accidently saved with it visible). The "concept", if anything so pretentious can be applied to an Uncyc page, is that it's about a white suburban WASP kid (complete with Mama's Volvo wagon) who has co-opted another culture to fill in the gaping emptiness of his own. Because of his own very white upbringing, plus a combination of naivety and ignorance, however, he's consistently way off (SH's mannerisms are a broad brush of what he thinks black culture really is. If you've ever been in a suburban mall after school lets out, you know what I mean). He's unknowingly made himself a parody of urban black culture (again, hang around a mall). As such he's adopted the veneer of the rapping/ghetto/black/pimp/thug, but got the details all wrong. This extends to his confused take on Ben Franklin's "Poor Richard's Almanac" which has been twisted into a rap-opera (his idea of history, as indicated by the pic, is the late 70's), and his attempt at graffiti is way, way off; he's taken a symbol (if not the symbol) of black culture, the Pan-African flag with it's bars of red, black, and green, and painted it upside down.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:07, 18 January 2007 (UTC) "Applying too much backstory to Uncyc pages since 2005"

Thanx --$$$ - RichDude530 - $$$ Icons-flag-us.png (RANT) (MUN) 03:43, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Any article that you create or rewrite between 14-27 is eligible. Make the page under your userpage (like User:RichDude530/mypageforpoolit (in the case of a rewrite, copy the original page into your subpage). This means you can start it between those dates and edit it to your heart's content, but it must be done by the 28th, when it will be locked for judging.
...and off topic, read Uncyclopedia:How_To_Get_Started_Editing#Signature templates (bobba) to learn how to fix your sig.

1 moose = moose. 2 or more moose = moose. Hosers do it to confuse foreigners. Also the singular is the "oo" sound from "loose", but the plural is the "oo" sound from "lose". Side note: I have never seen a moose. I did see raccoons eating strawberries in my parents' garden once, and my mom said a deer ate her bush.

It's time![edit]

Well, the time has finally come for judging the best at PLS. Since it'd be extremely hard (if not impossible) to fairly judge all 10 entries in your category in one sitting, it's recommended you start early and take it in stages. You were chosen as a judge because I trust your judgment when it comes to humor at Uncyclopedia, so you may use any method of choosing the winners that you deem fit. I do have space for you on the judging page to rank your top five favorite articles, in order, and give honorable mention to any other articles in your category that you deem "worthy" of being an Uncyclopedia article (which will then be unlocked after PLS is over). I'd prefer to have the entries almost fully judged by the Wednesday, the 7th of February, though the deadline isn't until the 10th. As such, be ready for me to be panicking if there's nothing done on your entry on the judging page by the 7th. Thank you again for judging, and enjoy the read (as many of the entries are quite funny this go around, in my opinion). Please contact me at my talkpage if you have any questions.--<<>> 00:52, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

UnNews and you: how evil do you want to be?[edit]

Here's your original file, with added patented zim_verb (I find a little reverb gives more presence... as though I know what the Hell I'm talking about). You may notice it's less than half the original size (2,251,798 bytes). May I recommend Advanced Audio Converter (se below in welcome to UnNews section) or another utility if you prefer, to reduce the size of your mp3s before uploading? It's be kind to server loads month.

Here, I took your jingle, added zim_verb and a whacky chorus setting. Also reduced in size, it's ok to use if you like, or you may modify or ask me to modify it some other way. I leave that up to you before I include it in my Welcome to UnNews spiel...

File:UnNews modusoperandi template.MP3

...speaking of UnNews spiel, here it is in case you haven't seen it.

The Right and Left Reverend Major Sir Zim_ulator, contemplating your fate.

Welcome to UnNews, Modusoperandi, and thank you for contributing some crap, or otherwise attracting my attention. For a quick introduction about how you can write a decent or better UnNews article, please take a minute read our spiffy new Style Guide.

I am your humble servant (in your dreams), and if I may be of help to you, please leave me a note on my talk page.

Good things that can happen to you

You can win awards and prizes! You can become a better writer by subjecting your articles to the scrutiny of UnNews critique machine or UnCanninator shit article detection system. You can become a thorn in the side of Journalism as a whole. You can get promotions, ribbons, and free crockery! You can write stuff your mom would be ashamed to show her friends.

What happened to my article?

If you've submitted an article, and it's disappeared, I may have mercy-moved it to your user space. This means I've probably left a message on your talk page, likely in close proximity to this very message, explaining why.

Your article may have been tagged for ICU if it has significant problems meeting our criteria, or I may have deleted it because you did not register as a user.

Finally, maybe you just pissed me off. I mean, I know I'm a Roshi, and I'm supposed to be all "Zen" about everything, but I have bad days too, you know?

How about a collaberation?[edit]

Modus-- Let me propose a collaberation on Dreamvaders. I have looked hig and low for better backup singers to no avail. So what if I pull the nom, and repost the image without the letting in the marquee and without the two back up Vaders. You plop two new back up singers in and fix the Marquee and call it our own. Deal? Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 01:12, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

How about this?
  • "From Death (vice "dark", which, if you were star wars fan #24875, like moi, you'd know that totally makes no sense. No, don't stuff me in my locker! I'll be nice!) Star to Pop Star ("Stars" would be better, but again that would be nonsensical, the second Death Star didn't start production until the orginal, an in my opinion superior DS was des...not my locker!)"
  • +Stormtrooper Divas as backup singers. (Google Image is your friend; just remember that the ideal search is either really specific "page" search, or a really general "image" search. This came from a "large" image search for "stormtrooper". Of course it's Starwars, and geeks have digital cameras and too much time on their hands; the memory is fuzzy, but I think I'm second from the left)
    Boom! It's golden.
Not really a collaboration; just remember to mention me in your memoires as a fellow redneck just trying to make it in the big city.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:31, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Potatochopping help[edit]

In order to make my newest article better, I submitted it for Pee Review and it was suggested I use better images. Since I not only don't own Photoshop, but I also suck at it, could you possibly change an outline of the United States so it's wearing the colors of Britain? --Emmzee 13:43, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Help again[edit]

Quentin Extra-Lights: Sometimes you have to bum a fag.

Modus - Need your opinion again - and as a gentle reminder I do not have Photoshop, but could you take a look at Image:QuentinQuisp.png I can't get his right side correct. Frankly I'm amzaed that no one has come up with this yet. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 02:08, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

His right, or box right? His left arm is shorter than the right, but that should be easy enough to fix (or shrink the other one a bit). IMO it works fine as is (maybe try it with "quentin" over the "uisp" rather than the "q")...lastly, who's the ugly broad?--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:17, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Er, huh, Modus - thats Quentin Crisp (The Naked Civil Servant) - the gayest thing out of the UK since Oscar Wilde. Thats the play on the word "Quisp" for Crisp. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 02:53, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
...and I should feel sad for not knowing this? Brain small, world big. I have to pick my battles.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:27, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Although in truth Oscar should be defined as Anglo-Irish, rather than "from the UK". And I'm sure Noel Coward, Frankie Howerd or Kenneth Williams to name but a few might question whom is the gayest to emerge like some majestic enamelled butterfly from these shores....Perhaps there's an article in there somewhere? Don't we have a category of Stately Old Homos of England? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)
Wow. Talk about separated by a common language; this is separated by a common pop culture. Oscar I know, Noel Coward I've heard of only because people are always mixing us up ("Hey! Come back here, Coward!". I assume they want his autograph or something). The others, not so much. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:22, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Recently an important decision was made by some admins regarding this template without consulting any Uncyclopedians. I'd like to get the opinion of a few other people. Please see here. Quadzilla99 03:06, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

From what I can tell you used the ICU template on a page too old to be ICU/NRV'd. It's on VFD; I've voted accordingly.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 07:51, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Intelligent design[edit]

All I want to do on this article is remove the link to nowhere at the start of the article ((Hidden message to loyal followers of the One True Faith: it really is the Christian God! We promise! But don't tell anyone.) [1]), and change the list under "The proof" back to the one it's been for the last few months (while the vote for featured was going on I might add and I think you voted for it then too). The list there right now repeats itself (evolution is wrong. That's a reason why it's wrong? Evolution is wrong because evolution is wrong. Twice) and doesn't same to come under the title of "why evolution is wrong" (evolution is used to spread atheism? That proves its wrong? Not funny. Atheism can be mentioned anywhere else in the article and it'll be funny.)

I'll show you the parts he seems not to like in bold (I think you might notice a pattern pretty quickly):

  • That explains the less-than-intelligent features in life such as a back-to-front retina, 98% redundant genome and George Bush.
Proof list:
  • My parents told me that evolution is wrong
  • The people at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary say it’s wrong too
  • (this has to be a gold watch which isn't capable of self-replication of course) - reference to how life can evolve while watches can't. He clearly doesn't like anything like this which attempts to poke fun at anti-evolution ignorance
  • Teach the fallacy (he changes to) Teach the truth (I like fallacy because fallacy rhymes with controversy. He wants it to be teach the truth)
Darwinist speaking to an intelligent designerist (these are the ones he wants to leave in, that I want to remove because they don't form part of the argument and are petty and childish):
  • I hate Jesus, by the way.
  • Oh, and God isn't real.
  • As an aside, Hitler was a wise and just leader.
  • Hail Satan!

(I put):

God, I mean the Intelligent Designer

He doesn't like pointing out that the creator is the Christian god. Again. So he changes it to:

a space alien

He's definetly trying to support the "intelligent designer is not the Christian god" stance by removing any reference to God or the wedge stratergy from the article, and also by saying that atheism is a reason evolution is wrong and that darwinists hate Jesus and love Hitler.

I've been editing this for ages now, and he just comes out of nowhere and keeps reverting the article to his new version: that darwinists are hitler-loving atheists. Hitler and atheism have nothing to do with ID and his edits are not funny. Weri long wang 12:39, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

While there are bits from both versions that should be used for a "final" version; I prefer the page as though it was written by an IDer (the Hitler/Satan comments pop up a lot in both Creationism and ID circles. "Evo leads away from God", but phrased as "Evo leads to atheism", pops up a lot in ID circles. As ID is biblical creationism in disguise, this does prove evolution is wrong to them; anything that leads man away from God is wrong, even if IDers phrase it differently from fundies).
I've used the 'written from someone else's eyes' technique a time or two and it works really well, even if you have to get into someone else's mindset/worldview to pull it off. Nevertheless you both have to choose what to keep and what should go; I haven't done the research necessary for an "eyes wide open" review of the page (actually I did, but only where it touched the edge of something else, and that was too long ago for me to be much help). The two of you should be able to come up with a better version than those that you'd each do separately. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 13:13, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
Writing as though it was written by an IDer doesn't necessarily make it funnier. Adding "Hail Satan!" out of nowhere doesn't really seem that funny. The old list seemed more like something from the Answers in Genesis website (funny because the IDers are honestly trying to sound scientific while really sounding stupid) rather than something from middle American AM radio (boring because it's too easy). The other users always going to revert though, so i don't know what to do here. Weri long wang 13:44, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
Find a middle ground or walk away. Anything else will earn the both of you a vacation for engaging in a revert war (incidentally the reason for my first ban. Ahh, good times...) --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 13:47, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Rei’s intransigence is pretty strong, and he plain refuses to make the main changes I want. It doesn’t matter though; I’ll just leave it alone now, on pain of banning. Weri long wang 22:22, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

I wouldn't worry about it. If television has taught me anything it's that it will all work out; at the end of season four you two will kiss, and one of you will be pregnant by season seven.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:10, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
I think the revert war is over now. p.s. will you come round to see my new son and his Athening (Atheist Christening) when he’s born in nine months time? Weri long wang 23:37, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
/me mops brow. Thank God! As for the Athening, I doubt it. Even with good behavior, I'm still occupied for a least a year. Remember to give Junior my blessing when the time comes. Oh, and don't call him Junior. Especially if he's a girl.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:35, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Rei reverted my change (adding one !) in 6 minutes. A new record! I'm fed up with him dominating an article that I helped to make featured. Just adding one exclemation mark to help empathize how ridiculous the idea of "intelligent design" is: being scientific for not naming the Creator, and I cant do it! Weri long wang 17:18, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Have you ever seen an interview w/an ID-creationist or gone to Dempski's deplorable blog? They do their darndest to stay level. I think they realize that the fire & brimstone protestant, with its profusion of exclamation points, doesn't sell as well as it used to. Just look at the newest entry...two exclamation points in a long article (considering the subject, very few).
Just try to picture the "narrator" as the fool, desperately trying to convince you that he's the straight man, by playing it straight (a "rational" argument for the supernatural, if you will).
I don't know how much that helps, but I figure if you're down to arguing about the ideal number of pi characters you're probably close to finished.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:50, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
An exclamation mark traditionaly signifies sarcasm. Well, ideally, it's an exclamation mark in brackets; Jeffrey Archer is so honest(!) So I don't think it's funny unless it's emphasised like that. Why is Rei so bothered? It's one exclamation mark for the Intelligent Designer's sake! He's really getting a bit obsessive now. Weri long wang 21:03, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
...said the pot to the kettle... <emoticon for winking grin> --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:07, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

No, you're both sweating the details <emoticon for face explaining previous post> --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:24, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

He’s done it with someone else’s edit now! Somebody put (something along the lines of) “the creator who popped out of nowhere” and he clearly doesn’t like this. He’s monopolizing the article now and he didn’t even help to make it featured. Will you go and shoot him now? No, honestly, it’s getting beyond a joke this. Every time somebody makes fun of the absurdity of ID he jumps in to revert it. What’s the point in having an article on a subject if you can’t make fun of it?Weri long wang 19:47, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Seen, improved, re-introduced. Both of you need to step away from that page before Famine catches wind of your high-jinx.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:09, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

I’m going to start a new page soon called irreducible complexity. I can make fun of ID in my own way (hopefully) there. Its funny listening to him speak and then saying that I’ve got an inflated ego. It reminds me of a talk between Ted Haggard and Richard Dawkins: Real interview or the better version: No pants!. Anyway, Rei’s unbelievable and hysterical hypocrisy aside, I’ll make sure I’ll never edit that article again. Weri long wang 17:20, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Be sure to grab the header from Uncommondescent. It's got that bacteria "motor" that's been "proven" to be irreducible...except for the "proof" showing it isn't...but he's still got it on his page (and it's a recent addition!). Also, don't forget the eye (what use is half an eye? etc.)...and try to sneak in that it was debunked by Darwin himself in that book he wrote.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:42, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes! The half-quoted section about Darwin “not being able to explain the eye”; that’s definitely going in. Also, on the subject of “what’s the use of half an eye”, there’s a lot of info that can be gained from Dawkin’s book The Blind Watchmaker in the chapter Making Tracks through Animal Space. I haven’t yet decided to make fun of the assertion that the flagella motor is IC. There’s also the awkward fact that the “less evolved” version of it functioned as a device which carried toxins across the membrane of the plague bacteria into host cells (humans in other words). So it seems it was the ID that created the plague! Weri long wang 19:11, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
Yup, the intelligent designer sure works in mysterious ways...--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:49, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, I haven't edited the ID article since my last post here. Peace and quite from Rei, you ask? 'Fraid not. I’ve now been told off for adding an image to the George W. Bush article, in which I compare Dubya to a chimp. Then he tells me that “[I] seem to have ticked off almost everyone in this biosphere. The amazing thing is that it hasn't made you stop yet”. Will somebody tell this guy to leave me alone (piss off) now? I wish that stupid ID article had never been featured now! At least Rei would have never noticed it (or me) then. Weri long wang 11:49, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

No use blowing a gasket over it. As for the "chimp chooser"; it doesn't fit the "theme" of the page. It's a fawning right-wing parody, they wouldn't do anything that reflected poorly on him. Still, there was no reason for Rei to be rude about it. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:07, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
I didn’t realize it was out of place there. I’ll remove it and think of somewhere more appropriate for it. Weri long wang 16:01, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Sometimes it's tough jumping into a page you didn't create. Generally it's best to read through the whole page a few times before editing it to ensure that you're on the same page, figuratively speaking. With pages that are a mishmash, it doesn't really matter, but some pages have one overriding "vision".--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:05, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

This page might be more appropriate for the image, right? Weri long wang 22:37, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

The "chimp chooser"? I don't think so. Try using "complicated" biological drawings that show just how darn complex things are (the eye, obviously. And the compete toe...without the fleshy part of the toe, the toenail would just hang there, and without the toenail, the toe would be rendered useless, as you'd be stubbing it all the freakin' time. Plus, girls would have ten less things to paint). Dry to be dry, droll, and "scientifical". Remember, you aren't pointing out how dopey IC is, you're "proving" how awesome it is. I'll add some if the muse pays a visit, but I've done a few really good pages recently and I'm recharging.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:52, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Try to be dry and droll? That’s music to my ears! Nice to hear someone appreciates decent humour. (Rather than crappy humor) I’ll try to make the article appear scientific, but with the soul of John Cleese running through it. (maybe you might want to clean up that crappy clock picture though and turn it into a functional pocket watch versus one with all the gears around it) Weri long wang 23:09, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
It's good enough as is (/me says knowing that it'd be a bitch trying to find a pic of a smashed pocketwatch) --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:37, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Also, as you've no doubt noticed, I'm editing it. I hope my delivery and additions are compatible with your "vision".--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:54, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

They seem to be pretty much as I would write them. Sometimes the sentences are a bit hard to understand, but that’s just because it’s so scientific! I had a hard time trying to find a smashed watch on line so a slighly mangled bedside clock will have to suffice. Proves the IC point well though! Weri long wang 00:07, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

I seem to be running through the page like a moose during rutting season. If you don't mind my contribution, do you now consider this to be a collaborative rewrite? An accidental one, but a collaboration none the less. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:31, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes I do. Is it OK if I make fun of Rei using "Intelligent Reverting" though? Weri long wang 22:45, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
*meh*. It's probably best not to add drama. If you were around in December, you no doubt noticed the various clashes and bouts of personal animosity that tore apart the forums/user talkpages/etc. I don't want that happening again.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:01, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
WHich articles? Weri long wang 23:09, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
It's best to leave it alone. Suffice it to say that it's mentioned at least a couple in Worst 100 Reflections on 2006, and was bad enough that a fictional user won UGotM by a landslide.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:29, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

It feels weird going back and tinkering w/old pics, doesn't it? I do it on pages all the time, but re-editing pics seems new and strange to me.

Yes. Your page shames mine. In my own defense it was an early page, and an evolved version of its format became Suburban homeboy. So there. Now, can we have conversations that start, continue, and end all on the same talkpage. Sure, this randomly spreading words around a wiki makes sense now, but when you check your talkpage before you go to write your memoires it'll look like you never replied to anyone.

America's future, today![edit]

I gave the opposite view of the same subject as your Future ☭f tomorrow, today! here on this page. I hope you enjoy it, or at least don't issue a fatwa. -Sir Àrd-Easbaig Gearcemeanaigh Mac Ádhaimh, UmP (Talk - Articles) Icons-flag-ie.png-Icons-flag-us.png KUN SEXY WH 02:19, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

It's not a bad start. It mostly just needs to sound more American. Try picking up some 50s slang or picture yourself as television pitchman from that era. Maybe, instead of the anti-commie interruption, have an ad for "The cool new taste of Vincent's extra-smooth cigarettes. With just a hint of Minty 'Versimol', for that deep down cool draw first thing in the morning, the newest cigarette by Vincent's is sure you get you hopping!", or the like.
It also needs a mention of "America will continue to fight commununism where ever it appears in southeast asia, as we did in Korea, no matter what the cost, well into America's bright future. The domino effect of democracy must continue." (perhaps with the nixon pic).
Lastly, you may want to switch Catholic for Protestant. Catholics (depending on the area of the country) were looked down-upon by good WASPs as Mary worshippin' hellbound idolators. Don't quote me on that, my memory of history is cloudy. Or murky. Maybe both.
I hope that helps, rather than confuses. I'm good at both, but terrible at telling them apart.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:54, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
OO! /me puts hand up. Have you ever seen "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show"? George Burns was the straightman and Grace Allen was a naive blonde...that would be perfect for the "joke" bit in Russia's Future, Today. Now if only I could remember what the show was about. I vaguely remember...damn. Sorry. I had it when I started typing, but it's gone now.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:34, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
George Burns "George, for our vacation this year we should go to Moscow"
Gracy Allen "Moscow? But Gracie, don't you know about the Cold War?"
George Burns "Oh, thanks for reminding me, George. I'll pack a jacket."
There, it's not the one I was thinking of originally, but it's the same idea. On the show they had a "bit" where George would make a comment and Gracy would misinterpret it (if there were two meanings she'd decide on the wrong one).--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:32, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Remember also, that just making the page the exact opposite of the Russian version (with American swapped for Russian and vice-versa) is less funny than rewriting the "bits" that don't work in the American version. The "pants" bit, for example, doesn't work all that well in the American version because the Soviet Bloc never made such things (it only works in the Russian version because it's one of the things that they wanted but never the blackmarket/mafia pants industry that appeared there after the Wall came down shows. Russia wanted to be best, but never could be, while America, at least in consumer products, was never in competition with them). A better bit to replace the "pants" bit would probably be something about beating the Ruskies into space (funny because Sputnik, in a few years, beats them to it).--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:42, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Borat v. Smirnoff[edit]

To be honest, I can understand why you hate Borat; he is a symbol of crudity and needless sexism. But simply using his (father's) name in this article underscores the complete backwardness of the Soviet system. Indeed, the only things changed about the quotes from regular Borat schtick is that is talks about parties and people being "swell", two well-known '50s cliches, which only highlights the fact that people have become more approving of sex within the past 50 or so years. Having Smirnoff, on the other hand, seems like an over-use of an Internet meme, which is why I decided to try a fresh approach. Besides, you can't ignore the "Jagshemash!" greeting at the end. I hope I have explained things suitably to you.

Oh, and by the way, I could hardly keep a straight face at your detective novel parody. I kept imagining Phil Hartman saying it and repeatedly broke out into guffaws. You should VFH it, or maybe I should. Keep up the great work! The Humbled Master 04:12, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

It's not worth fighting over. The Smirnoff version flows a little better (SR based itself around being the opposite of their rather cartoony version of America, hence the russian reversal), and is the one that was in my head (it was cemented when I was searching for pics of suitable russians for the pic and saw Brezhnev. Poof the hair, add Stalin's moustache, tint and fade...Boom! Zukov Smirnoff). For me Smirnoff isn't a meme, it's a chunk of the 80' childhood. I'd watch Night Court, a genuinely awful show, just for the few episodes with him. Sad, I know. I was a kid. Then he got his own series for a bit and I don't remember it at all...
As for Pulp Novel, your kudos come too late; it was featured in December. But thanks anyway, it's easily the best thing I've ever done and, besides the religion-satires, the hardest and most obsessive to write.
How obsessive? Look at my selfnom on VFH...(sometimes the "method writer" way of writing has side effects)
Score: +1 private eyes who think this comedic reductio ad absurdum on the genre of crime-soaked, cheesy metaphor-drenched pulp fiction is easy on the eyes. Easy on the eyes like that bombshell blonde in the red dress who walked in like she owned the place. You could hear the silence as every head in the bar turned, just for a chance to watch her walk by and smell her perfume. She smelled like heartache and roses. Roses got thorns, see? And this gal had thorns in spades.
  • SN+F This is a nom, a self-nom, see? That's how we do it in the big, cruel city. We nom at night. Night is dark, and black like her heart. A dark night sky watched over by the sad, dark eye of the moon, staring. Staring down at a city crisscrossed with crummy streets full of dirty secrets that drain away into the filthy gutters of men's souls. Which also have secrets. A sad moon because it knows your dark secret. Secret like you not telling your girl that you cry yourself to sleep sometimes. How do I know that? 'Cause I'm a detective, see? A private dick, a gumshoe. No time for niceties; when there's a gun to my head, I roll the dice, put all my cards on the table and shoot from the hip until the fat lady sings. I know you like I know this city, and I know this city like the back of my hand. Sure, a map would work better. Maybe then I'd stop driving into the river. But that's not how we do it in the private eye game. We don't have time for maps. Too busy solving crime. (donations, expired medicine, letters of support and votes can be sent to Modusoperandi c.o.

Again, thanks. It's still my favourite.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:40, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I missed out on the '80s. I did, however, watch videocassettes of "Raffi" concerts, a fixation I am now deeply ashamed of. Oh, well. We all have our idols. Interestingly enough, my first impression of the '80s (being little, remember) was that everyone looked dumb with their poofy hair or over-sized glasses. But, hey; I was little.
I suppose, today, that Borat, like Yakov Smirnoff, is an ethnic-type figure, one we can use to endlessly poke fun at another culture. I, personally, almost fell out my seat while watching Borat, a feat closing surpassing my ribs aching during The Pink Panther. (Yes, I mean the reboot.) But, if you enjoy "In Soviet Russia" jokes, I don't really mind; I just wanted to lend a hand. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to crawl back into my hole in the ground. Wotcher!

Photoshop CS2[edit]

In case you're interested, I've just got a copy of Photoshop CS2 (kind of jealous that people here can make pictures that I cant!) I've uploaded an image of George Bush reading The God Delusion as my first attempt. It's pretty crude and I'm hoping to learn how to use some more features soon. I'll try to make something for the IC article.

What do you think of my crude first attempt of Bush reading the God Delusion? Weri long wang 18:20, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Not bad, although the book is covering his fingers. Learning to 'chop, eh? Good for ya'. I wouldn't worry about the early stuff not being great, as the learning curve for "thinking in pictures" is pretty steep. Take some time and experiment. That's the best way to figure it out, I think. I'm not a fan of the "...for Dummies" series. They vary wildly in quality and don't have enough cursing (I got "volunteered" for a task once and had to learn Access. All I had was "Access for Dummies". It was probably the longest 90 days of my life). --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:30, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

That ended up sneaking around the page, then stabbing it in the back; Rahab is on the talkpage. The spies, I assume, are hiding. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:29, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
...and you're right the "...LORD commanded..." bit is the bestest. I wrote this in January, and the memory has faded someone. Even moreso than December, when I foolishly reread Joshua, trying to find a way to skewer a zealot while being at least a little funny (and ended up going with this, the original idea, anyway...) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:37, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

UnNews:Stop dressing like whores, you whores![edit]

Since you're so fond of the local scene, I think it's about time you become part of it.

Thanks. Some stories simply must be satirized. Plus Yosef looks like a muppet. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 09:14, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
Have you listened to Zim's audio? I was hoping he'd mix in the footnotes, but his wildly inconsistent accent makes up for it, I guess. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:41, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

As long as you remembered to wear your lucky redshirt, you'll have done fine. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:31, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
Damn. I wore the blue one. ~ 11:52, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
I'm surprised they let you in the room. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 12:03, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
Funny you should mention that, the organization that leads this certification is American, and as such everything had to be in order and by the book, as Americans do. So we had a dress code, which is the last thing people do around here....luckily the proctors were Israeli so they didn't mind the people wearing sandals and torn t shirts....Oh, and at the end of every page they had TURN TO NEXT PAGE written all over it. ~ 12:11, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
Obviously. Otherwise how would you know when to turn the page? I'm reading a book and I'm stuck on the first page because they're missing that. Too bad, it looks like a good book. Damn publishers. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 12:28, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

UnNews Audio'd.[edit]

Yeah, I'll take a swing at it either today or tomorrow. I've got a bit of a cold, but it shouldn't affect things, I think. I just need to go back over the original Johnson family and get back the accents/inflections I used. --Contestant buzzer.JPG Contestant CUN -- VFH NotM Buzz Ctrbs 16:53, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I wasn't sure if I was giving you enough lead be honest I kind of forgot. (It's so rare that any two UnNews stories have any real sense of continuity that the alarm bells didn't start to ring until I realized that the second part's "release date" is around the corner) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:10, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Done, uploading now, and will be in the article momentarily.  :D I beat the deadline, what what bitches --Contestant buzzer.JPG Contestant CUN -- VFH NotM Buzz Ctrbs 22:32, 2 April 2007 (UTC)
And up. If you put the thing in the April 3 box, can you add the audio to the appropriate thingy too? KTHXBAI!:D --Contestant buzzer.JPG Contestant CUN -- VFH NotM Buzz Ctrbs 22:34, 2 April 2007 (UTC)
You'll have to excuse me for being a shift-worker who just woke up, but I have no idea what that means...Template:FrontPageMediaMenuBeta? It's already there. Lastly, thumbs up on the audio. It's like the whole family was there. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:45, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
<3. No problem. I lucked out; Dana's only line from the last one was spoken with strange inflection, since she was crying during it, so I could get away with some freedom on that. Avigail's a BITCH, though. What you hear there is all one take, through and through. It's like death. Except with less death. --Contestant buzzer.JPG Contestant CUN -- VFH NotM Buzz Ctrbs 01:53, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
You know you can edit, right? I can count the audios I've done on the fingers of one cartoon characters hand, but even I know that. One take is just masochism. I do a sentence, pause, have a beer, maybe get a haircut, come back, do another sentence...again, thanks. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:58, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, I know I can edit. There are edits in there; I usually run a paragraph or two at a time, and if I botch it somewhere in there, I redo that clump. But I try to minimize editing as much as possible so that my inflection and accent maintains itself as needed. It's a habit I picked up after a year of voiceover recordings for my school's television station. I got the job because I was the only one who could pronounce every name at the Saddam trial. --Contestant buzzer.JPG Contestant CUN -- VFH NotM Buzz Ctrbs 02:00, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
Also, thanks for the nomination, but now I have to keep doing these. Do you really want to unleash that upon the poor Uncyclopedians? I WILL REIGN WITH AN IRON FIST. maybe just an iron paperclip. --Contestant buzzer.JPG Contestant CUN -- VFH NotM Buzz Ctrbs 02:01, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Just Like The Good Ol Times...?[edit]

So, Modus, now that I'm back and what not, I might try this thing called writing articles again. A great picture would surely help me out. I started Eggs Benedict Arnold a long time ago, and havent had time to do more of it, but now I plan to. A picture of this meal would be greatly appreciated. Tell me whatcha think. -- Sir C America...Fuck Yeah!!!! Holla | CUN 03:49, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Alright, I'll work on it and keep you updated. Progress may be semi-slow though. And thanks. -- Sir C America...Fuck Yeah!!!! Holla | CUN 04:59, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


I noticed you'd reverted to a previous version of Canadians, after it got badly rewritten. When I looked, you'd reverted to a near-blank page rather than to your own, much superior, previous version. So I changed it back to your own, much superior, version. Just to let you know so that, if this was not your intention, you can go back and sort it out to how you wanted it. RabbiTechno 15:42, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Um...sort of. That last para got added by someone a while ago. It's bugged me the whole time but I didn't want to just cut it, as there was some thought put into it...then I noticed that it's not funny, doesn't fit the "theme" of the page, and falls after the closing punchline. So I said "Fuck it.". Then I ate some soap. I do that, sometimes. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:51, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
Did eating soap allow you to blow bubbles when you burped? RabbiTechno 16:39, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

In Soviet Russia, dead horse flogs YOU!!![edit]

Flogging a dead horse refers to when people go on and on and on about somthing to death such as the russian reversal joke. So it's self referential and its at the end of the article so it has the biggest effect. And yes you could say he is selling dead flogged horses, whatever it takes, etceterererea.--Mrasdfghjkl 10:16, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

What are we talking about? Smirnoff? Oh. The dead horse thing doesn't work because it's not in context; that section is about his commercial work. They don't sell dead horse flogging. At least, I hope they don't. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:30, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
Well it had to be at the end of the article. And I guess if he's said that, he's really sold out. I dunno.--Mrasdfghjkl 08:01, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
*shrug*. It doesn't seem to fit, that's all. Like this sweater. I'm swimmin' in it. I really should try things on before I buy them. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:37, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm not an admin and can't. I can pretend to, if you'd like. *Poof!*. There, I've pretended it away...or, to be helpful, ask Braydie or Zombiebaron.

Celebrity Manufacture[edit]

Thanks for the comments on this, I've rewritten it heavily to make it more encyclopedic. The whole thing was basically an experiment in writing in a magazine format, I wasn't really sure where it belonged so I just created it as an article. --Winstanley1 11:50, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

I've done the "experimental" thing too. A bunch of times. But that was in college, and it didn't involve words. Well, it did, but they ended up being mostly words about my hand. 'Cause it's all right there, man. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:23, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

I honestly have no idea what it means. It's nice though. The pictures are pretty.
This yin/yang thing fascinates me. To me a "glance" is to look at something for a second (like "I glanced at her tits."), but to you a "glance" is a whole story about things, stuff, and whatnot. Dunno why you have to make things so complicated. Is it done? Or, more to the point, will you know when it's done? Is it like moving day, when you try to unpack and organize before everything is off the van? Am I rambling? --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:12, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
I manlyfied your page a bit. The drapes didn't match the carpet, if you know what I mean. If you do know what I mean, can you tell me? I hear people say it, generally after a blond with brown eyebrows walks by, then they close their eyes and start sweating. Feel free to revert. The big Roots blower and Mickey Thompsons may be a bit much. I needed something to match the spoiler and racing seats that I also added and that may also be a bit much...still haven't found a place for the beer tap. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 07:33, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

My Sig[edit]

I have attempted to fix my sig, but it won't budge. At the bottom of the edit screen, there persists a pesky line break that I cannot seem to get rid of. Seeing as you've obviously been on the site longer than me, I ask you to take a look perhaps? It will ensure a vote for Uncyclopedian of the Month. If not, please don't flame me, I'm but a boy.--Ljlego20:22 15 April 2007 (UTC)

I gave it my all, which wasn't enough. I'm no expert on wiki formatting (as my sig attests). Try a more smarter person, like Braydie. Or just steal someone else's sig and modify that. That's what most people do. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:38, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

You should stop[edit]

making funny and witty comments at the forums and talk pages. Otherwise, I may really end up reading one of your articles, and I'm too lazy for that!---Asteroid B612B612.jpg (aka Rataube) - Ñ 03:24, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

No. You're not the boss of me. One of my proudest moments on Uncyc was getting the first comment in on a Forum topic (where someone asked for help with a question to which he should have already known the answer) and leading it to a conversation about sombreros. Most of my articles, however, are different from my forum comments in that they tend to actually be about what they seem to be about. Mostly. Also they tend to be longer. And they aren't on the Forums. Other than that they're exactly the same. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:39, 16 April 2007 (UTC)


I thought that image would never be featured, talk about a slow burn. It looks mighty fine on the front page should be very proud. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)

Thanks. I'm amused, especially since I only nom'd it to show that I'm not a total buffoon...I figured that the four people who'd read Kafka would vote yeah, and two that hadn't would vote I don't get it...then it would go away. I feel so friggin' classy now. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 13:01, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

An idea...[edit]

I have decided that whenever I come across an article of marginal quality, that I shall tag it with [[Category:Magnus Fortesque Reports]]. What say you? Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 22:46, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

I say "I honestly have no idea what that means." Not even a casual googling helped. You're mixing your medication with alcohol again, aren't you? I know I am. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:59, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
No - it means nothing, ergo, it fits. I want Magnus Fortescu to be on part with mediocrity. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 01:52, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
I'm thinking no. Occasionally, when I find a mediocre page on a subject that I've been pondering, I adopt that page and improve it. Adding a cat just isn't the same. Cats can be like templates, remember; they show you care, but not enough to really do anything. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:21, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Think yes....improving it is part of the process...the pills tell me so... Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 23:20, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I'm thinking yes. I still think it's silly, however. If there's one thing we need less of around here it's sil...oh. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:25, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Right, first of all let me start off by saying that your pics are, as always, up to yer usual standards. Thank you very much!

Second, you are a very very sick person. Stereotse?! My god man!

Third: Would it be possible to chop one or both of the following: A car disguised as an abortion clinic and/or a sterotse that has a feast waving out of it in an obvious menacing manner? ~ 19:25, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Abortion clinic? Sure. It'll be a while, as I'm about to go to work. Feast? That's a bunch of food. Fist, maybe? --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:30, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
waving my hand at the sky mumbling something about that idiotic language Naturally, it was fist. Reminds of the time I spend in New Zealand, I came around a backpacker that didn't allow cooking after nine pm. I told the owner: If you don't mind me cooking this one time late, since I just came in, I'm simply ravished. That old English lady looked at me and said: No no dear, you meant famished. Ravished means that you were just abused by a gang of drug users. T'was a bit embarrassing. ~ 19:39, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
Once, when I was in the military, a guy from Quebec (who'd recently moved west and hadn't got english yet) gave the direct english translation of a common french toast, "Up yours". Also, when I was little, I was in Quebec for a shooting competition. I wandered into a restaurant intending to order the Quebecois delicacy of french fries, gravy and cheese curds, commonly called poutine. I asked for poontang. That's another delicacy, but one not generally served in restaurants.
Sometimes, as with this "abortion clinic", a good disguise is your best option.

Like ducks off a water's back. Or something. I just took it as an odd post in an odd forum on an odd site. The only zing that hurt a little was the one on my Hitler page, as that's probably the page I agonized over the most (even satirically, it's a bitch to make a page about the lead-up to the invasion of Poland even vaguely funny).

Thanks for the hard work. I only do these silly things to stretch your capacity for silly voices. You never know when a good silly voice could save your life. I, myself, used silly voices on no less than three separate occasions to spook Charlie back in 'Nam. Or maybe that was "waitress" and "restaurant". My flashbacks involve a salad bar. I'm pretty sure they had a salad bar in 'Nam... --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:32, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Sure they did! It was just next to the spa! ~ 20:33, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh shit, sorry. I forgot that you were in our platoon, Sarge. Odd that either of us was in Vietnam at all, really. Ah, "Hoser and Hymie", they used to call us. I'd forgotten what assholes they could be. I never had the heart to tell them that Hoser isn't really a slur. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:48, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
We do look good for our age no? ~ 21:17, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
I know I do. /me runs fingers through combover. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:44, 28 April 2007 (UTC)


MO, MO, MO......what a to do. You may have noticed I haven't voted for, or against you, on the current round of VFS. Its not that I don't think you would make a great Admin, clearly you would. I just have a nagging doubt that you should be sysopped. I'd probably say the same about Shandon, Enegma and a few others. Although you are all mature and articulate enough I almost want to protect you from the living death of Adminhood, the endless patrolling of Recent Changes, the near constant demands of singlecell lifeforms masquerading as users here. Its like giving a master artist a broom and telling him to brush up. And so here I sit, vote in hand...... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)

I'm kind of torn myself. On the one hand I wouldn't turn down the responsibility if it fell to me. On the other, there are other names on the list that already do the admin jr stuff that I don't do. CS1987, Tom or OEJ are probably the best choices. I'm helpful when and where I can be, but I consider myself to be a writer first. Take from that what you will. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 10:33, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Your vote was much appreciated! --Sibley 11:57, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Hurrah! --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:01, 28 April 2007 (UTC)[edit]

Hey, is that stereotse a simple photo of your arms or it's chopping? I laughed from it a lot in Mord's article but now I've placed it on VFP I notice it is a little out of proportion. Like the arms not really touching the - uh - hole on the pane.

Another stuff, can you please lend me your power drill? This just in case you like the article and take real interest - my first custom superhero. Need a half-black-half-white superhero in costume and maybe a half-black-half-white man's face, the hero while in his "secret identity". What do you think? -- herr doktor needsAbolt Rocket.gif [scream!] 12:18, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Damn it! I was planning to nom it myself! ~ 12:35, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

It's not a little out of proportion, it's a lot out of proportion. The stereo hole is much larger than a...bum...hole. The reason he's not "grasping" the hole is the hands are from a pic of a guy giving the "thumbs up"; the original pic has fingers that end at the first knuckle. It's weird enough as is, I can't imagine how creepy it would be if it was realistic.
I'll take a look at your page when I get a chance.
Mordillo, do you still want the pic with the fist coming out? --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:01, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Yes please, I'm a sucker for pics. ~ 18:35, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Okay. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:57, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Jesus... I thought you were kidding... -- herr doktor needsAbolt Rocket.gif [scream!] 10:23, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
This makes it far funnier... The context... do you know that article about fat chicks? The girl with a martini? I've taken it from a feminist website about fat women pride. -- herr doktor needsAbolt Rocket.gif [scream!] 14:53, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Big lovin' is safer, I think. No sharp edges. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:08, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
You're such a philanthropist, Modus... :p -- herr doktor needsAbolt Rocket.gif [scream!] 15:16, 28 April 2007 (UTC)


Thanks, MO: this is all your fault. Now I have to go write more articles...I'm running out of featurable ones ;-) --Sir Shandon 10:40, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

See, I told you life would be easier if you just wrote crap. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 12:49, 29 April 2007 (UTC)


there's some QVFD requests for the stephen hawking articles inside your userspace to be deleted, do you want them deleted? or did some little vagrant post them? --Prof Olipro Icons-flag-gb.png KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 11:13, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

They can go. After I moved the finished version out to mainspace, it got tagged with ICU. Figuring I'd gone off my rocker, I put a copy back in my userpage, just in case it got deleted...funny how things work out, eh? --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:21, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
