Pronunciation[edit]

Let us say that one was composing a series of limericks about CP users. How would he go about producing 'Schlafly' (for rhyming purposes)? EddyP 15:00, 22 February 2009 (EST)

Rhymes with Laugh-lee. See him pronounce it himself: [1] PubliusTalk 15:04, 22 February 2009 (EST)
Thanks very much, that was what I was hoping for. Not sure if I should bother with the 'Schlaf' bit though. EddyP 15:07, 22 February 2009 (EST)
A sloppy but workable rhyme would be words like "roughly" or "toughly".
There once was a pervert named Schlafly
Who treated his gerbil most roughly
It chewed through the string
He had tied to his thing
And now he sings soprano less gruffly
Or something like that. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:35, 22 February 2009 (EST)

Andy admits to being a Liberal.[edit]

[2] Andy, in this discussion, admits that he would Vote for the British National Party, which Wikipedia characterizes as "a far-right and whites-only political party in the United Kingdom.", however, Conservapedia's article is even more critical, describing it as "a British neo-Nazi political party". Since we all know that Nazi's were socialist, we can basically say that they were a liberal political party, since everyone also knows that Socialist and Liberals are the same. So, by claiming he would vote for a neo-Nazi party, Andy has just claimed that he himself, is against Conservapedia, and is just another part of the vast liberal conspiracy to brainwash our children, steal all of our money, and turn us all gay (that is what Liberals do, right? Of course, I just read Conservapedia, so I'm not sure). So, since it turns out that he has been a Liberal, what are we supposed to make fun of now? --Passerby25 16:45, 22 March 2009 (EDT)

My head hurts from reading that...User:Ttony21/sig2 16:49, 22 March 2009 (EDT)
From what I wrote, or the Conservapedia discussion? I need to learn to organize my thoughts when writing on the interwebz.--Passerby25 16:53, 22 March 2009 (EDT)

I think...[edit]

PennyLane 07:06, 23 March 2009 (EDT)I have a crush on Andy.

And some people find my grammar "different"[edit]

After I read this article, No wonder Human avoided using the term "problematic" in my talk page. Was he raised in an environment using any language besides english? Thieh 17:59, 29 April 2009 (UTC) Example.jpg

Gallery of mockery[edit]

I will be honest, most of these are shit. I showed this to my brother once and he told me that the best part was how the last image (then Andy in his fort) was the funniest picture and it was a good thing that it was the last because after that none were funny any more. All the images should by together in Category:Andrew Schlafly if you want to look over them for you pleasure, but this need to be cut down to possibly only the best 15. So what I propose to do is put it to the mob to find the best, the rest can either go in the fun article or just die in the category. - π 02:36, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Wow, makes me wonder why I went through the effort of bothering. Thanks! --Kels 02:44, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
It is not personal about you Kels. It is just everytime someone make a picture of Andy for a specific purpose, they then add it to this, where stripped of its contents it is not funny anymore. It takes along time to load and fills more than two screens now, it needs a cull. - π 02:50, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Hey, pi bitch, that was my idea! Thanks for working it up, though. I guess you deserve the credit... ħumanUser talk:Human 04:01, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Wait, Kels, your latest is doing well. Anyway, life is short but art is long. Didn't someone say that in Latin once? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:04, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Ars longa, ad infinitum, which means "Art is long, but commercials go on forever". --Kels 04:41, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Yeah... wait. Are you sure? Hehe, I chuckled in the cockles of my cups. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:31, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
(EC)Nobody deserves any credit, this is a cooperative project. I must say the blank picture of Andy is polling well. May be we should have a new caption contest like they do on Wikiality for picture that are only kind of "ha" funny rather that "Ha HA!". - π 04:06, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Wow I always though Che Andy and the Glorious Republic of Conservapedia was a bit crap and a duplicate of Andyland, looks like the mob thought differently. - π 04:10, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
The reality is that most of these, well, aren't very good. And having too many of them brings the good ones down, too, I think. How about we drop the worst scoring 3 or 4 pics after a week, then re-intercom it, and continue with that process for a while? PS, just joking about the credity thing, Pi! ħumanUser talk:Human 04:14, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Drop the low-scoring ones, and perhaps also anything that's in another article, like plain Andy pic - we don't need that in the gallery as well. Totnesmartin 07:10, 12 May 2009 (UTC)he

The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 17:10, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I'd say the simplest would be to keep all those that run positive - or, say, better than -5. Let's let the voting keep going for a bit though? And intercom it once in a while? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:13, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
PS, I do think that the "best 15" is a good choice. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:14, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Slight cock up[edit]

These two were inadvertently given the same poll number

Are they both worth keeping? - π 23:50, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

We'll know soon enough. Probably, since they ended up highly positive, right? Unless people voted one up and ignored the other one. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:13, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
I think people were voting for both. They were well ahead of the others. - π 00:16, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Plain Andy should be first. Makes more sense. --Prim arthropleura.jpg 00:22, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
I conCUR. The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 00:26, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
It is only funny because of everything we did with it first, otherwise it is just a regular picture. - π 00:27, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
No, it serves the purpose of demonstrating what Andy actually looks like'. The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 00:29, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
His picture is at the top of the page, either way I don't really care it is not that important. - π 00:32, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Deceit?[edit]

Does it count if he truly believes in the stuff he said? Example: he has no problem in beliving "no logical problem in Jesus raised from the dead", so I think he can convince himself to believe in anything. Hence, if he convinced himself to believe in things before he says it, I don't think that counts as deceit. Maybe stupidity will suffice. K61824CP≠Child Porn? 16:27, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

"Never assign to deception that which can be adequately explained by stupidity", or something like that. Yeah. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:27, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Which of these should stay, which could go to another article and which should be consigned to the dust bin? - π 08:56, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I dunno what should be removed (the top ten lists?), but I see no reason to move things about AS out of the article to elsewhere. Why does it being so long bother you? We have a lot to say about him from over two years of close observation... ħumanUser talk:Human 18:58, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Lack of lulz mostly. I tend to find that attempts of humour that fail make other funny things around them less appealing. - π 01:28, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
I know you care and mean well. Trouble is, probably no-one wants to go through this tripe/brilliange to improve. I care too though :) If you want to point me at things that fail, here, I will be happy to opine in generally useless ways. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:33, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
I ditched the last three sections as they are not funny, the titles are inconsistent and I remember them having spelling and punctuation errors and they are very unfunny. - π 12:46, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Just asking[edit]

Would it be unfair to post slander about him? e.g. he touched me in my naughty spots? Kwilky 00:28, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes. It would also be slanderous. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:53, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
that is unfortunate. he did make me cry though. well his website. it was similar to being violated. Kwilky 01:52, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Radio re Conservative Bible Project[edit]

LOL!!!--Star trooper man 22:00, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Has anyone else heard the irony meter pegging?[edit]

I am almost certain this is not an original idea, but the thought has occurred to me that Andy tries so hard to be what he denounces; i.e., a scholar. Sort of hating what you want to secretly be, in his case a university professor (I'm guessing) He reminds me of an unpopular kid I knew in elementary school who made stuff up so completely outrageous (presumably for the attention) other kids would beat him up. Andy is so pathetic he's almost pitiful, yet his unwarranted arrogance just makes me want to see him crash and burn in infinite humiliation. What a tool... Historygeek2007 13:48, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Well he claims to have been an adjunct professor himself. Perhaps the "real" professors looked down on him in some way and he still holds a grudge, just like how Obama beat him (most likely) in the Harvard Law Review elections.

Not fair[edit]

I welcome constructive criticism, but not lies. --Andrew Schlafly (talk) 05:45, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Then you'll love this article: Andrew Schlafly! larronsicut fur in nocte 06:05, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
"I welcome constructive criticism"... well, at least we know whoever posted this isn't Andy-pandy. --Psygremlin말하십시오 10:15, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Conservapedia Motto[edit]

Is it just me, or does 'The truth shall set you free' reek of Auschwitz- Arbeit macht frei (work shall set you free) Tweety (talk) 19:52, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Nonsense. That line is from the Bible, specifically John 8:32. You might also want to familiarize yourself with this. Colonel of Squirrels白山羊不山羊。商讨。 20:04, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Oops, didn't realise that. Not being a Christian, I don't waste my time on the bible. And don't get me wrong, I wasn't using reductio ad hitlerum, it's just every time I see that motto, it reminds me of arbeit macht frei. That's all :) Tweety (talk) 20:19, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Andy and emus[edit]

Just joined RW and found this article straight away. It's a joy. Andy reminds me very much of Roger Ramjet. I was on Conservapedia for a while for something to do, and one of the things I did (and it still gives me a warm glow, is to make a couple of additions to the Emu article there (I'm an Australian, you see). I added a story about how emus used to kick down farm toilets and also an absurd account of how the marsupials banded together and made the long trek from Noah's Ark to Australia. It was gratifying to see it stay there for some time. Eventually, it was removed. And guess who overrode that decision and had my contribution reinstalled? Why, it was none other than Andy himself. Which is why I have a soft spot for old Ramjet. Though probably not as soft as the one between his ears. Have a look [here] Birdie num num (talk) 10:37, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Andy's Laugh[edit]

Should there be a video clip of him laughing on his page as an example of its annoyance? I found this video which just shows him laughing on his interview with Stephen Colbert: (Video moved to page) The video itself however might be a little big on the page. Maybe a link to it would be better? --BradT 01:02, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Someone could create and upload a sound clip of that, that would take up considerably less space. --Oniontalk/edits 01:07, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I forgot about the ability to change the width of the video, but I suppose a sound clip would be just as good as the video. --BradT (talk) 01:32, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
PUT VIDEO ON PAGE. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:28, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I think we should also determine where the video should go first. I've noticed that under "Self-Parody" on his page there's a mentioning of the Colbert Report. It also mentions his annoying laugh. Should it go there? Possibly in a subcategory under it? --BradT (talk) 05:00, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I'll just put it in there with the words "the most annoying laughs in the history of television." above it to quote the quote just above it. Feel free to move it or change it into a sound clip if you find it necessary. --BradT (talk) 05:12, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I think what you did was just fine. And the link to the entire interview is a nice touch, too. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:26, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Princeton alum[edit]

A search of the Princeton alumni database confirms that Schlaffers graduated in 1981, with a degree in electrical engineering (and that he married another member of the class of 1981, and that he has a child attending Princeton now). Looks like this claim is legit. He's probably not the most loathsome Princeton alum (he has to contend with Rumsfeld, among others), but he's certainly up there — Unsigned, by: 173.21.226.228 / talk / contribs

Thanks, but I think we knew that already. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:54, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah it is a joke, parodying his equally silly claim about Obama. - π 13:19, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
