I, IcePick, am a frequent visitor of Uncyclopedia. I love reading the articles because here you can laugh to you're hearts content at the articles created by the true comedic geniuses of today whether they be fat men in their parents basements mocking anything and everything they can think of or high school students creating articles on their school computers. Here you can experience the pure, almost completely uncensored comedy that lies hidden in today's media. It is truly paradise.
However, as I experience my daily frolick through this wondruous world I'll encounter articles that contain very little cleverness or potential. Most of these articles find themselves rotting with the other articles administrators found very vapid and colorless. But unfortunately there has been one particular joke that has gone under the radar and been naively viewed as very clever while it is, in fact, the only last ditch effort of junior high studentsand such to make their friends laugh at the poorly thought out and extensively overused humor of the Chuck Norris Joke.
Seeing this joke in any article has greatly been reducing my faith in the comedic skill in the mind of the modern world. It is often added to a completed and perfect article in an attempt to make it even better. But, like adding a drop of black dye into a glass of water, the Chuck Norris joke soils the comedy of the article leaving it to wallow in nothing but the filth of the overused and barely acceptable jests about Norris.
I can appreaciate a good Chuck Norris Joke when the time and place is right. The party atmosphere where friends pass around a delightful array of jokes is the perfect place for this joke along with racist and dead baby jokes. But when some people start to believe that that kind of humor belongs on the rolling hills of Uncyclopedia's vast meadow of beautiful witticism, it's enough to make a man go insane.
The Chuck Norris Joke is sadly the worst and most dissappointing pis aller that any living soul could post in an article on Uncyclopedia. It shows that the author has no talent at his disposal other than the jokes he can remember from the drunken party he attended just nights before. It's not funny. This joke is a mockery of comedy itself and should have no place on Uncyclopedia or even the Internet. Yet people continually use it. Can you tell me how often you've thrown you're head back in laughter at a Chuck Norris Joke on Uncyclopedia? Have you ever congratulated an author for his use of it? Have you ever given even a barely amused grunt when seeing that joke on this site? I can tell you as sure as sitting here typing this that I never have.
I say this all now not just for personal gain. I not only want the feeling a police officer recieves when he strides down a peaceful, untroubled neighborhood, knowing that he's done his job. But I want future users to be able to browse through the articles of Uncyclopdia without having to be exposed to the defilement of the Chuck Norris Joke. I want them to experience the good feeling of the laughter they recieve when they read a pure, unadulterated article written by someone like me. Who cares about the quality of a well thought out joke rather than that of a meaningless, sad attempt at comedy.
So please, Uncyclopedia beaurocrat, do not let this letter go unnoticed. I implore you, help abolish this waste of the human wit. The great articles of this site, nay, comedy itself rests upon the conclusion of this dilemma. Please, make the right decision.
Devoted UN user,

Awarded 12/16/05 ~ For your stellar contributions to Uncyclopedia:[email protected].
thanks for the howto: featured article.... seeing i wrote about 4 in the last week the odds were probably on my side. anyway cheered my day up thanks--Whywhywhy 14:03, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
- Sorry about that. I just revered the templates back to the last versions. MadMax 02:46, 15 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for your vote for me for NOTM. I tried to thank you in channel, but I wasn't sure you got it. -- T. (talk) 00:57, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Thanks (again!) Paul. You were the first to take notice of me here, when you posted that Least Awards award to my talk page. A small gesture perhaps, but it made me feel important that someone noticed me. Sometimes that's what it takes to turn the casual or curious into involved users, just a simple greeting. It got me writing enough that Mhaille and Radical-X started making me artwork, and ... a few good deeds really sent me into a writing and editing frenzy. I love this site, and will certainly work hard and try to repay the welcome I received here, sysop or not. -- T. (talk) 02:58, 18 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Hey, Paul. Funny you should link Greatest Inventions to Worst 100 Inventions of All Time. It was the fact that I'd read your article just today that prompted me to throw my hat in the ring. You had a "See also: Worst Inventions" link at the bottom of your page with no article, so... -- T. (talk) 23:12, 8 Nov 2005 (UTC)
See: Template:Canadian_User Category:Canadian_Users (vs your Template:CanadianUser Category:CanadianUsers) Do canadians really need two conflicting categories? --Splaka 21:51, 30 Oct 2005 (UTC)
- Do Canadians really need 5 different Templates to make themselves feel marginal? Now down to 4 due to deleting one that looks identical to another. http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/c/c5/Dawg.gif » Brig Sir Dawg | t | v | c » 23:07, 31 Oct 2005 (UTC)

*Pokes tongue out at Paul*
You know, for a non-Brit you've got the sarcasm thing down pretty good. Seriously, sorry if I offended you, though. It's just that "your" and "you're" and "they're/their/there" are two of my pet peeves. But I'm just a pedantic sonofabitch. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 23:48, 6 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- I know you're a pedantic sonofabitch, but what am I? What about "then" and "than"? http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/c/c5/Dawg.gif » Brig Sir Dawg | t | v | c » 01:21, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Would it be alright to use the Vanity2 template for QVFD articles ? I know a few pages that could use it. ;-) MadMax 20:57, 9 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Actually the template's original purpose sounds a lot better then using it on qvfd candidates. I can place some around if you still want to use it. MadMax 21:16, 9 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Lol. Yeah, that's what I was thinking when I reread my first message. Sorry about that. :) MadMax 21:26, 9 Nov 2005 (UTC)
How To Template
Paul, I edited the template so that you could actually read the text underneath the Category Tag. Just noticed you've changed it back. Was the "unreadability" deliberate? -- Sir Mhaille (talk to me)
Paul, forgot all about this....did a new version of the How To template, its just sat in a table, but it works OK in IE and FF. What do you think? User:Mhaille/HowTo -- Sir Mhaille (talk to me)
Thanks, you too :)
thank you, good luck to you too :) at least there a 1 in 4 chance an Uncyclopedian will win :) --Maj Sir Insertwackynamehere CUN VFH VFP Bur. CMInsertwackynamehere | Talk 04:42, 19 Nov 2005 (UTC)
If you do not like what I added to Vegetarians, change it. It is totally different in flavor from Vegetarian, not a duplication. The content of Vegetarians was posted to a wiki where it was quickly deleted. I thought it was as good (funny) as most of the stuff people try to pass off as funny at Uncyclopedia. --JWSchmidt 00:44, 19 Dec 2005 (UTC)
...a critic. Let me know what you think of Chemicals in a Cigarette so far...could you tell me what it needs/lacks/does to laboratory rats? Oh, and if it's worthless crap...tell me. thx. --Timthe3nchanter 21:00, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
