Nice! Good work, fella :) --Robledo 19:11, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Is it just me or is this pretty humorless?[edit]

Context is everything. This is a Conservapedia spoof - back in 2008 (god, was that really seven years ago) Andy was dead keen on his Conservative parables with their deep and meaningful insight. Whether it is still relevant is another matter. Given that such glories as Hebden Bridge and Melchester were deleted in the Great Purge maybe this ought to go as well.

And the one that did not make money went to hell

I wouldn't go for deletion, but maybe just killing the less fun ones. For example, how is this funny:

A smoker was in a drug store to purchase a pack of cigarettes. Short on cash, he went to the cheapest cigarette store he could find and emptied all his pockets in order to scrounge up with every last penny he had. The cashier counted all the change and but found it was ten cents short of the total required for the cheapest pack of cigarettes. The smoker desperately turned to the man standing behind him and asked him for a dime. The bystander clearly had a spare dime. Should the bystander give the smoker a dime so he can purchase the pack of cigarettes? The bystander, who is generous by nature, complied, giving the smoker a quick fix. The smoker then left the store and died of lung cancer 15 years later. By that point, he had killed several prominent Universal Health Care lobbyists through second hand smoke, preventing the loss of America to socialized medicine. And Al Gore. This parable actually happened.
