re: nostub. looks good to me. nice work, thanks for your role as wikihelptracker!!! You should make a self-congratulatory userbox! Or do I have to make it for you, honoring the British tradition of not blowing one's own horn? humanbe in 02:14, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

A lot of this "advice" doesn't seem very helpful, to me... gonna try and make it a bit better. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:32, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

That first line ...[edit]

The first line of the article contains: "Creationism is good -- when it comes to words, that is."

I know it's a joke, but come on! Do you really find this funny? Creationism has a clear definition involving divine powers and creation of the universe. You can't just abuse it like that just because it has 'creation' in it!

That would be like making the joke: "Subjectivism is good -- when it comes to jokes, that is."

See what I did there? Subjectivism has a clear definition in philosophy involving knowledge and truth. I just twisted/abused it to mean something along the lines of "Funniness is in the ears of the listener." just because it has 'subjectiv' in it. Is abusing definitions like that really funny?
