An initial attempt: [1] Not sure if altering a shrunken image of the cartoon directly counts as fair parody (fair use!!!11!) or not, if not then go ahead and delete the link. Speech bubble: "These days, I just lie back and think of 2008." Cigar: blank. Caption: "The honeymoon is over." WodewickWelease Wodewick! 08:31, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Someone with wiki-fu should make this a contest.--Tom Moorefiat justitia 08:34, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Upload and post here, we can vote on them. Fair use for parody will do, especially seeing as it is Karajou's picture we are parodying. - π 08:57, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
I would think that this is the very essence of parody ∴ "Fair Use". I have just eaten Toast& stiltontalk 09:19, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
This should work... just copy paste my code and increment the poll id, for anyone else who wants to join in.WodewickWelease Wodewick! 09:37, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I'm waving the white flag because my image-editing skills suck. I was trying to create a variant of the "Global Map" toon below, titled "Conservapedia World Editors, 2010". It would replace "Decent Folk" with "Far Hills, NJ", and replace all the other sign text with "BLOCKED". If anyone thinks this is worth it please feel free - I've tried for a half-hour to get rotated text to look decent but can't.
My other entry would have been to create a variant of "trenchcoat guy" replacing the hammer & sickle with the words "Call Me, 212-555-POOR". The caption would read "He's ready to help". --SpinyNorman (talk) 15:26, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
ListenerX: Your entry is awesome! I love it! Tetronian you're clueless 17:26, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
There is actually a house like that here in Minneapolis; the owner puts up posters in the front porch windows supporting the NRA, Sarah Palin, and wingnut-Christianity, and opposing abortion. I never see any Christmas decorations on the house, even when the houses around it are decorated. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 17:32, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Redback FTW. Especially as I was about to comment that "for some reason you've put Kenya where Hawaii is"... and then went duh and beat myself up. --PsygremlinFale! 18:20, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Redback got my vote. Well done. --SpinyNorman (talk) 19:51, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Can we add links to the originals? ħumanUser talk:Human 21:03, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
What the fuck is this shit? Why has this been moved from the CP space? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 21:22, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
To save load time at talk wigo cp; also it looks like a thread that will be around for quite a while. Also, note it sort of "is" in a CP space - I made a new section in the forums page thing. If people think I dun wrong we can put it all back the way it was, no problem. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:07, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Nyet, you did good Huw. We can always leave a link up at WIGO CP talk so Karajou knows we're making fun of him. SJ Debaser 22:10, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, SJ. I did leave a link to here under the original "stickied" header. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:17, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

FEWER dead brain cells - or I WILL find you and FORCE you to learn grammar. NoodleDickSissyPantsTalk! 21:07, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Professor of linguistics Mark Liberman disagrees. Down with prescriptivism! :p. --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:28, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
It's not that simple. In this case, "Fewer dead brain cells" is correct because they can, in theory at least, be enumerated. "Less brain death that way" would also be correct. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 21:37, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Hmm... sorry - I missed the later part of that first link (dodgy connection today). I still agree with Noodledicksissypants though. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 21:39, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
But it's a character speaking, so you don't need to be grammatically correct. Escape hatch'd! Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 02:39, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Well played, sir. NoodleDickSissyPantsTalk! 12:52, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I'm claiming at least half an Internet for the idea of putting CP sysop names on the labels. It's more interesting to note that although we don't agree on which is which in general, we DO all agree that Ed is a knuckle-dragging simian. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 15:35, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Great minds thinking alike and all that. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 15:41, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
I was going to make Ken the same one you did, but I thought the facial expression on the dog matched this one. And I hate you for that cartoon - it's easily the best one done so far. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 15:45, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Lol, thanks. If only Kara would return to the days of cartoons we could at least parody. --PsyGremlinPrata! 15:53, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

I highly approve this endeavor[edit]

Some very funny up there. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:09, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't see how anyone could disapprove of it. There is some brilliant material there, thanks to everyone who has contributed! Tetronian you're clueless 22:12, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
As long as mine's in negative figures, I'm happy and not at all dying a little bit inside. SJ Debaser 22:13, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
I thought yours was top-notch Josh, and I voted it up accordingly. However, after reading your wishes, I have voted it down as you requested. May I call on all toon-fans to do as Josh wishes and vote his excellent effort down.... DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 22:53, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
Making jokes is hard, I don't think my effort was very much of an improvement from Karajou's original. But Psygremlin, ListenerX, and Redback, yall made me laugh out loud! WodewickWelease Wodewick! 00:34, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh... this is where we're doing this now, I wasn't paying attention when it was moved, and for some reason I only just noticed the "moved to" notice. My favorite so far is Josh (and I'm not saying that out of sympathy), his is teh funny - and it reminds me of that episode of American Dad.
"Hi, I have to sell my house because my neighbors don't like me... Yes, that's the only reason... Well, I guess you and I have different definitions of 'silly', remind me never to go to the circus with you, we'd have nothing to talk about." [Hangs up]
Hope there are still more to come. -RedbackG'day 14:53, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Cheers Red - that's actually where I got the idea for the last speech bubble, I'm quite a big American Dad fan. SJ Debaser 14:57, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Nominating for "best of amusement" - certainly worth it. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 15:21, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Seconded. Tetronian you're clueless 15:39, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Pull the actual toons out as a separate article? (I still think DeltaStar's is the best) I have just eaten Toast& stiltontalk 15:44, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

(UI)I agree with Toast. Give this thread a bit longer to see if we get any new entries, and when it's died down, place them in an article. Conservapedia:Weakly_toon, perhaps? Then there's nothing to stop us from placing that article into best of amusement if we wanted to. -RedbackG'day 10:17, 13 January 2010 (UTC) I see someone already did that. Nevermind.

OK, these are awesome! :D really funny.. laughed out loud.. witty folks we have here. Refugeetalk page 22:31, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Weaseloid's effort is outstanding! He has perfectly captured the incredible hypocrisy that is CP. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 07:50, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear Sir[edit]

Dear Sir,
I'd like to complain about the amount of users approving of these comical endeavours. I, in common with a lot of people from my country, am English, and over here we value top quality humour, such as a nice story about a castle, or a city banker with comically mismatched pinstriped suit and trousers. For how much longer do we have to put up with this filth?


Ivor Bigbotty the Fourth 22:42, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear Sir, I wish to complain about all the letters appearing here, written by people who are complaining about the things appearing here.
Yours etc
Flight Lieutenant Ken Biggles (Mrs)

Dear Sir/Madam, As a proud member of Her Majesty's Royal Air Force, I must complain about the above letter mocking our fine institution.
Squadron Leader Percivil Badminton-Squash


Pay no attention to those mamzers. British humour is effete and simplistic. Any English "joke" may be reduced, without losing anything important, to the following:

There were once two brothers. The other one also disliked cheese.

Toda, Herschel Schmoichel Krustovsky

Wickedly funny! Chortle! Ivor Bigbotty the Fourth

Vote Error?[edit]

Is there a reason why my votes count twice? Has anyone else noticed this? Junggai (talk) 10:45, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, it doesn't seem to be happening anymore. Junggai (talk) 10:47, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
either a) you changed from down to up (or vice versa) thus amending the total by plus or minus 2 or b) someone else coincidentally voted @ the same tme as you. I have just eaten Toast& stiltontalk 11:09, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, I'm guessing it doesn't even have to be at the same time. I'm assuming the vote count won't get automatically refreshed, but it will get refreshed when you vote. So if you wait 10 minutes before you vote, other people could have voted in those 10 mins but won't show up until you vote (or refresh the page). --GTac (talk) 12:10, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
correct. -- Nx / talk 13:39, 29 January 2010 (UTC)


Should we put headers (like "Toon 13") above each set of parodies (and a link to the original?)?? )? ħumanUser talk:Human 01:38, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Good idea. I'll get right on it, unless adding text in between the voting messes things up, in which case, I'll be useless. --PsygremlinSprich! 17:58, 4 February 2010 (UTC)


  1. Although this is a Forum wouldn't it be better if we moved/confined comments to the talk page and just had the toons by themselves on one page?
  2. Where the toon relies on a single speech bubble or caption (and not on any text in the drawing) perhaps the bubble should be left blank and multiple captions could each have their own vote?

 Lily Inspirate me. 09:25, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

The commentless collection can be found here. I also like the idea of voting for comments. Not everybody has the time or inclination to bastardise Karajerk's offerings. --PsyGremlinParla! 13:55, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
