It is from BJAODN, I don't know who originally came up with it.

The new KITTENHOEFFER magazine stand article rocks. --Uvula Donor 12:42, 11 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Thank you :-D Great art comes from great pain. Should I add the talk page para to the article? I would if I could see a way that would flow well. - David Gerard 12:46, 11 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer[edit]

Hi David. I'm here to beg for some of your creativity. As you've voted for a few of my pieces, you probably have a good idea of my style, even when it isn't well executed.  :) You're a great writer and editor, and I don't recall anyone else with the ability to do concept to front page is less time. If there is anything you can do for this limping animal of mine—from minor touches to major structural changes touches—I'd appeciate it. I got a sympathy vote from Cap'n Ben, but assuming that this thing gets on the front page, it should actually be good, not just 'OK'. Thanks. -- T. (talk) 19:48, 20 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Your plea touches me to the very bottom of my spleen. I'll have a look. Of course, high off our remarkable success with Niggers. I'm currently trying to work out a good article to put at O RLY? - David Gerard 22:54, 20 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Much obliged.  :) -- T. (talk) 00:54, 22 Dec 2005 (UTC)

A little parody never hurt anyone, did it?[edit]

Hey, I'm here five minutes, and already I'm being called a troll and you're reverting my link to User:Snowsplutter? What's wrong with a little parody anyway? I mean, who would take it so seriously? It's not like it's in any way a factual statement, right? Snowsplutter 19:56, 19 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Starts a bit too slow, gets really good by the tea leaves bit. Needs more on the Mercian Liberation Front - David Gerard 14:53, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Worked a bit on the earlier part. And added politics/demographics and sports sections - I can't believe I forgot about Liberation Front... Morwen 19:28, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I don't wanna seem like an ingrate DG, but ummm, the Logo you made to put this delicately, sucktacular. Maybe I've just been spoiled by the works of little brudda RadicalX I was looking for something more like a Cleveland Indians logo.--[[User:Slackerboy|slack CUN]] 05:39, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC) PS, why is my sig not working?

Hey, feel free to do better :-) The idea was to make it look like a stylised version of the (ahem) Original Rufus pic below. There's something about the use of the brown smiley face that's obnoxious in itself too - David Gerard 07:38, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Yo, DG. I fixed your logo. I re-uploaded it to the same file name, so refresh the browser, and see the beauty..heheh --Strong RadX 01:31, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Would you like to have the font that I used for that? You can download it for free. That way, you can slap it on your big version of Rufus for mug making purposes. [[1]] is where you can find it. It's called "Team Spirit". The ) symbol is the ending curl that loops it back into the big curl along the bottom. I rotated the text on a -8 degree angle for what I did, so you can perfectly replicate what I did that way. --Strong RadX 16:37, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Tried to link it but it got wiped out[edit]

I tried to link the President and his super spy powers news article to the Mahatten District article but user:Isra1337 had a hissy fit and removed the link. If you can think of a way to link the super spy powers into the Manhattan thingy, I say go ahead. I'd do it but I'm not up for another cat fight today - one's enough.

Thanks & Question[edit]

Thanks for your kind words on Babe Vigoda (image). Also, is Rocky Mountain Oysters out of the running now for VFH, or is it just lying there? I was really hoping it would make it. Hugs, Prettiestpretty 19:27, 14 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Report of your violation of the 3RR on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi[edit]

You had been reported for violating WP:3RR on this article, but given your last edit, I declined to impose a block as you seem willing to compromise on this statement.

Not only a vote, but also a positive contribution!  :)

I've spent the last twenty years being an editor for volunteer writers in one capacity or other. Encouraging people who don't write complete shit is actually everything I am all about - David Gerard 15:07, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Too much attention?[edit]

David! I wanted to thank you for all the positive feedback lately. I'll admit, it was getting a little embarrassing having no WotM votes, though not entirely unexpected. After all, I do suck... Still, do you think I should just keep mosting poor posting more articles, or "space them out" a bit? Am I overdoing it? Does anyone care? And will "Nobody Cares" eventually beat out Oscar Wilde and Kitten Huffing as the most-linked-to articles on the whole site? Seems like it.  c • > • cunwapquc? 02:46, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Ehh, just keep posting stuff that doesn't suck at whatever rate you finish it. I sure do - David Gerard 02:49, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Kind Sir[edit]

You helped out my WWJJD? entry...evidently I had those pictures clashing like titans in there. I wanted to: A. Thank you and B. Say that I may have effed it all up again when I added to it (I destroyed your little picture linker to space out the pics - was this wrong? stupid?) I must confess to having not much of a clue what I'm doing here, just having wandered in to use a bathroom and finding that I rather liked the satirical atmosphere and those funny people over there. Anyway, I don't expect you to fix my mistakes again, I just didn't want you to hear that I undid your good work from somebody else. --Imrealized 11:30, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Hey, I also just wanted to thank you for the nom. I don't know what will become of that and to be honest I thinks I'd rather my work be appreciated by a few than loved by many anyway, but we'll see. Also, I know you've got your own thing goin' on but I'm not sure what's going on. This "Lir" or "Guest" or someone evidently slapped a template on my user page and it looks like Some User had a little verbal repartee with Sir Sycho or whatever his name is. I did some minor investigating and guess what I find...somebody named "Someone's User" (I'm guessing a slam at Some user?) has taken an entire paragraph from my user page and placed it as their own. I know everything on here is free range or whatever, but that is going a bit far, don't you think? I'm coming to you with this because I really respect the level of your work along with only a handful of others and I'm just wondering- is all this amazingly junior high school shit typical around here? Because it seems that Some user is pissed off enough that he's going on article strike and I really don't want to be the cause of any shit for him. Sorry this is all so fucking unfunny, man but should I just turn around and leave from whence I came? What are your thoughts? --Imrealized 09:07, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
Some user going on article strike would be a major problem. I'll see what I can do to turn him around. Please do stick around - David Gerard 14:44, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Right on, thanks brother. I just didn't want to create problems for him, or you, or anyone for that matter. Thanks. --Imrealized 15:27, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Many Thanks (Again)[edit]

Hey... thanks for touching up Hide and Go Jesus for me... yes, that was exactly what I was thinking (I'm still a bit inept at all this, I suppose). Anyway, I appreciate your help (if there's something I can do around here to return the favour, just let me know, man). --Imrealized 08:25, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

And another thanks for another nom...I guess I missed the template before my first comment... I actually, for a perfectionist, was impressed with myself on those images; its been too long since I've worked with Adobe-like software so I'm getting my bearings I guess. I'm glad you appreciated it. --Imrealized 08:51, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

See? I told you he was still alive. There's the proof.


As much as I don't think we need another maintenance tag, I should inform you that if you are serious about keeping this around you should:

  1. List it on Uncyclopedia:Maintenance tags.
  2. List it on Uncyclopedia:Deletion Policy.
  3. Give it it's own category (not Category:Ugly, that is taken by Template:Ugly).
  4. Make it slightly more palatable to the eyes.

Consider, however, that it might be more effective to use another tag, such as {{Cleanup}}. ---Quill.gifRev. Isra (talk) 06:44, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Are you perchance talking about someone who managed to get kicked off Wikipedia Review after getting kicked off Wikipedia? - David Gerard 11:35, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
Wrong again, Big D! If you're referring to me, I've never posted anything whatsoever to Wikipedia or Wikipedia Review. However, I did notice that someone had registered "Some user" as an account on Wikipedia on Feb. 2, which got indefinitely blocked after about 5 minutes and no "contributions," or rather none that are still extant. And I do know what Wikipedia Review is now, at least... As for the latter, they seem to be all talk and no action. At least it gave me the chain of events, though, and (by extension) the perps... So I don't blame you quite as much as I did before, and I still don't think you would have been f-headed enough to participate in the actual attacks. (I can forgive incompetence, but not malice, understand?) What's more, I just bought the latest Church album, so you'll be glad to know that at least this experience hasn't caused me to totally give up on the Aussie music scene.  c • > • cunwapquc? 13:32, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
I really haven't the foggiest idea what you're talking about, but keeping all this going just seems like Trolling. Can we, and by "we" I mean "you", just let this go, before "they" decide to provide you with time to contemplate your navel elsewhere. Why can't we all just get along? Etc..... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)

Whoever wrote this site put my name all over it. Now I just need to work out where I've seen that writing style before - David Gerard 16:01, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
It can't be me, Dave, because I always place periods and commas correctly within quotation marks, not outside of them. Hmm, let's see, who around here does that? And also has a wry, sarcastic sense of humor, enjoys being mischievous, likes to back-handedly insult people in the best British tradition, knows how to use "admin powers," and has never really identified himself to anyone... Tough call! I just know that nobody who's posted to this thread could possibly be the guilty party... OOPS, wait, I guess there is someone after all! Oh well - good luck hunting him down... and killing him!
By the way, the "troll" tag just doesn't seem to do it for me. Maybe I'm getting too old, but to me a "troll" is a cute little plastic toy with a pot-belly and funny hair. I actually collect them, in fact! (I've got several on top of the CD cabinet, right in front of me.) I understand the need to de-humanize, though, so maybe you could try calling me a "soulless monster" or something? But still, I've removed the offending text above - I really am sorry about that. One more thing, though: If Mahroww and I are the same person, can I combine all his VFP awards with all of my VFH awards, so that I'd maybe qualify for some sort of "Lifetime Achievement" thingie? I mean, why waste a perfectly good reputation, after all?  c • > • cunwapquc? 01:05, 18 April 2006 (UTC)


There...Mr. Sommie. One upped you!
Hey dave, I was serious if you want a bottle. Just let me know.  – Mahroww a.k.a. Hard Wick Fondles Buggies III  21:08, 19 April 2006 (UTC)


No, this is more like the first "new generation" movie.

Seriously, though, I think it's time we left ol' Dave alone. He's had a tough week, what with all the EoW's seemingly coming out of the woodwork all of a sudden. (Almost as if somebody was coordinating it somehow. Yikes!) If anything, we should be helping Dave - witch-hunting must be hard work, and I imagine it makes him rather grumpy by the end of the day. If he were to start taking out his frustrations on other red divas, or divas of completely different colors, that would be pointlessly tragic. (For them, anyway.) So here's what I think - I've taken the time, studied the writing styles, the posting patterns, the attitude markers, everthing - and I'm convinced now that the person behind could only be... Nerd42!
Anyway, good luck, Dave. I think you're gonna need it!  c • > • cunwapquc? 02:32, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Mass EoW’s, witch hunting, hard work, red divas, divas of other colors, speculation, theories, conjectures, rumors, gossip, made up crap with no supporting facts? …what are you thinking man!? THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR SARCASM!!!

Help needed on That's My Dick[edit]

People on IRC are being quite poor at suggestions for this - any ideas? Morwen 22:23, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Church of Scatology[edit]

Okay, so there I was, happily typing away at this article that I'm writing (I'll link to it in a second, hold on), and casualy glancing into IRC at the same time. Then I see Mhaille link to my article! I ask what he thinks of it, and he mentions that "it is shit", and that I should get you involved with writing it, because you would "love this". So, I figure, "Sure I'll show DG a link to it, and maybe he'll come up with some material for it." So, the article is called Church of Scatology. It is still in my name space, so that IPs can't screw with it, but feel free to edit it as much as you want. I apologize in advance for any edit conflicts I might cause. Thanks in advance. --Major Sir Zombiebaron GUNWotMUotMPotMAotMEGAEDMUPotMMAFEZotMIotMVotMUGotM (shout) 01:23, 25 June 2006 (UTC)


In case you haven't heard already, the article Command Line got featured...thanks for the work you did with formatting. I just made (another) custom Featured Page box because,

  • A) There needs to be a command to launch the box (cat Template.txt)
  • B) It didn't [email protected]@k commandline-ish with the original one.

Thanks! --Icons-flag-us.png SonicChao Babbel!Contribs 11:14, 17 July 2006 (UTC)


The article on NUS High has been huffed and deleted way too many times, even when it had been protected. It disapeared recently (yes disappeared, not just blanked) and someone (who I know but I can't find his account on uncyclopedia) claims to be responsible, and is trying to sell me the backup copy. I think last time this happened Blackr wrote to Codein and he reffered to you but this time it seems that Codein did it, the message is still there. Kindly restore it. --User:xuanji 08:49, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

My apologies[edit]

I have been compelled to remove the Cobain image from Z, with agreeance from Rc. I really appreciate the contribution and especialy the VFH, and I hope you aren't insulted, but the whole Cobain/Kitten element doesn't really fit. I hope you understand, and don't be afraid to further contribute to the article.

Go Ahead and Huff![edit]

Hi, please feel free to huff this article; sometimes I head down a path that seems funny, but isn't. All part of finding out what works & what doesn't. Appreciate you leaving it around in case I wanted to work on it though. Thx--Shandon 22:53, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Dammit, now I'm going to spend the day working out things to do with the idea ... - David Gerard 06:35, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
Meh, it was an afterthought to my UnBooks:The Three Weird Sisters are Alive and Well in Washington, DC. Perhaps they do something that gets worldwide (or at least national) attention. Win a Questions bee? Actually succeed in turning someone in? They were a fairly trivial and inept pair. Much hilarity should follow...except they are generally at the whim of someone else. So who in the world could use a couple of fops?--Shandon 07:12, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

No longer "emotionally damaged", sad to say...[edit] you're just pissed, okay? (Click it... I won't bite! God, i'm so fucking embarrassed about flaming up that page in the first place...and writing something really, really long to make up for it...) Also, just wondering... do you in fact take credit for most of the Gay Pride article? Either way, I apologize for insulting it like that. I assumed it was the work of many. I guess I felt like I was battling a wave of mindless support for the article from all sides, so not one would think I was attacking them precisely, and that was really close-minded of me... shit...sorry... --Lenoxus 19:41, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Looks like we crossed in the mail, Dave. Still wondering about it all, though... looks like everything's cool.--Lenoxus 19:47, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

What the hell is wrong with it?

Oh, and Sailor Mercury too? What do you have against me? BTW, Forest Fire Week ended at midnight on the 16th according to the thing on your front page.

I kept going as long as it was on the front page (presuming that meant it was the 15th somewhere). I've restored them to subpages of User:RySenkari for you: User:RySenkari/Sailor Mercury, User:RySenkari/Sally McKnight.

Nihilists article[edit]

Hi, I'm new and I wrote the "Nihilists" article. I was wondering if you could email it to me, as I foolishly forgot to save it before it got huffed. I thought it was fairly well written and funny. But it's probably gone for good eh?

Actually, looking at it I'm wondering why I deleted it. I think I was punchdrunk from overexposure to stupid. I've restored it happily into place. SAVED! - David Gerard 08:33, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Umm, hey...[edit]

Warning: A request for help is hidden discreetly in this message.

I NEED HELP! Not that it's your problem, right? But when I first started here I know you fixed up a couple of my articles — thanks again for that, by the way, and also for the noms, votes and defense of classic poetry — and now I've got nowhere else to turn. Help me, David Gerard... you're my only hope. Well, I guess not really and all this is a bit much. And I know you're a busy guy what with deleting a mass of crap from our wiki and calming down the storming hordes and writing featured articles and such, so you can kindly (or not so kindly) tell me to "fuck off". Ready?

I sporked from the eBay article to create a parody of for my user page (sort of another inside, inside joke, but maybe not), but when I deleted stuff I didn't need from the templates I got this crazy formatting. All I want is for the part that says "Imre Al-Ized... Online Now" and what is below it to be flush, but not touching, the right of that first picture. And the other thing is, I think that maybe the whole template has no end to it so when I try to write like, an actual article kinda thing underneath it, the formatting is going crazy. But that template that says "retchWorks", I want that to be able to continue to extend down as I add articles to it and have it not interfere with the thing I write. It's just those few things, which I probably failed to explain properly. Sorry for that. If this is something that's fairly easy for someone who knows what they're doing (ie. You), I'd appreciate the help. Though "Fuck off" is still a viable option. -- Imrealized 21:14, 18 July 2006 (UTC)


/me points over there in a vague sort of a way -- sannse esnnas 17:50, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Ooooooooooooo. I had actually forgotten about that - 06:52, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Self-hating Jew[edit]

Your edit "longer intro" didn't make the intro any longer at all; you just truncated the article in the middle of a sentence. I'm guessing this was an accident. Are you using Windows, Firefox, and an old version of the Google Toolbar for Firefox? -- !!! ??? 21:48, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Uh, no I'm not, I'm just lame. I was actually taking out the "usage" header, or trying to ... sorry about that - David Gerard 06:52, 5 September 2006 (UTC)


"The tequilla joke" was actually from a mad lib, but I was wondering if you remember what it was, if it was funny enough to make you laugh out loud, it might be worth changing it permanantly! Aaadddaaammm 10:22, 5 September 2006 (UTC)


I need your help, man. I believe you're the only one that could exploit the full potential of an idea I came across while chatting with a bunch of furries and a couple non-furries in #wikifur. You have such a reputation for exploiting such ideas to the fullest that I hope you will hit me up on IRC sometime to chat about it.

If you don't recall, I use the nick 'wolf' now. Thanks! » Brig Sir Dawg | t | v | c » 13:31, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

ref: your comment for American Fundie Magazine on VFH[edit]

I wrote AFM as I felt it would be writ, if they weren't worried about the rest of us reading it. Preaching to the choir, as it were. This meant that for the most part, they wouldn't have to couch their speech in platitudes and semantics, as is required for their TV/media appearances. More of the Phelps school instead of the "God loves all mankind" stuff that's on Sunday morning TV, in other words. I could give you some surprising and grotesque examples of what they say when they speak their minds, but after I finished writing the page I purged all of the links from my computer (by the time I was done research for the page I'd dug up enough frightening shit that I didn't want it on my computer anymore).

As such, the delivery is deliberately blunt. I tried to choose words that elicit the greatest emotional response, much as the Westboro Baptist Church does with its signs. There are exceptions however, I put the bit about God hating shrimp simply because it cracks me up and it shows that even fundamentalists skip over some of the rules (I was hoping to find a pic of a literalist with a shrimp cocktail, but even the magic of Google failed me in my quest).

If you want subtle, my stuff is not the right place to turn. Solid Gold, my most recent attempt at satire, is still pretty brusque. In my opinion it's better than AFM. It's funnier too (I LOL'd a couple of times, but I'm biased), which is tough to pull off, considering the target.

Thanks for the compliment on the pic. I made the pic first and, thanks to a nasty case of insomnia, was promptly inspired with a page to flesh out the pic. Sorry if I rambled, I just had to add my two cents.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 10:17, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair enough, and I expect your brain was utterly fried after reading that stuff. I know mine was after researching Kevin J. Anderson, and I still have to rewrite the excerpt to convey more horror - David Gerard 16:32, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
I understand. The Dune prequels went on and on. Still didn't mind them, though (my main annoyance was the "Hey! They put this bit in here simply to reference one of the original Frank Herbert Dunes...").
I think that I might be a geek.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:47, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
  • I put the pic on VFP, apparently it's not "VFP-worthy". Or if it is, it's only vaguely so. Sigh. Some people like it, anyway.--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:19, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Suburban homeboy[edit]

In honour of your good taste and breeding for selecting a deep, socially conscious and literate satire as Suburban homeboy for featuring, I tip my cap to you. Hurrah!--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:14, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Mangled Sig[edit]

Do you have any idea why this happened? I'm guessing it was a glitch, vice vandalism ǚρωξλ£μĦΦφ≈€ƏξßÐÆØΞ's sig went all wonky (well, wonkier) when you edited. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:21, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
