That's about the most bizarre thing I can think of. Is he even trying to sound credible any more? --Kels 06:49, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

Just nuked the redirects, hope no one minds :-) -αmεσ (!) 07:53, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

I think the article title should be in quotes. It looks a bit weird on its own under "see also"s. humanbe in 13:04, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
Good idea, right now it looks like the name of some sort of niche pr0n.--PalMD-Goatspeed! 13:08, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
I was thinking something like Bill O'Reilly's Lesbian Gang Epidemic but that sounds even worse. Quotes should be fine. ollïegrïnd 13:11, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
Not that i wouldnt watch it User:DocSock. BTW don't forget to delete the redirects.--PalMD-Goatspeed! 13:15, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
Unless I'm mistaken, I do not have such powerz. On a side note - can anyone who still has a CP login suggest this for their mainpage news? ollïegrïnd 13:18, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
Well, anyone can check "what links here" and correct the in-links. Then Doc or I, or any other sysop, can delete the old unneeded version. humanbe in 13:28, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
I was a step ahead on the in-links, but can't do much after that except track down a sysop and ask him/her politely. But since the sysop was asking me it threw me for a loop. ollïegrïnd 13:32, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
I'm still getting used to my superpowers. Forgive the silly request.--PalMD-Goatspeed! 14:34, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

<- This would make a great band name. humanbe in 15:01, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

Just think of the posters if they opened for The Cure. --jtltalk 15:55, 9 July 2007 (CDT)
Hehe... God Is My Copilot / Cure / the Lesbian Gang Epidemic .... humanbe in 16:26, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

God was my copilot, but we crashed in the Andes and I was forced to eat him.


Anyone else think we should drop the quote marks? None of our other neological articles use them... humanbe in 17:07, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

Fact or sarcasm? -- O'Reilly mistook a lesbian exploitation film for a factual documentary?[edit]

Was that statement tongue-in-cheek, or serious, that perhaps O'Reilly saw one of the lesbian exploitation films and mistook it for a documentary? Did O'Reilly mention such a movie as factual reference? I ask, because I really don't know.

I know for a fact, that in the deep south, an article in Southern Living Magazine convinced many literal minded people that the fictional "Lone Ranger" was an actual historical figure. And many of these readers are college educated! (but in technical subjects) The magazine article, back in the 1970s, mentioned that the Texas Rangers' Museum had an exhibit honoring each ranger who had died in the line of duty. At the end of this long grey line of memorials, was an exhibit honoring the most famous Ranger, known the world over as the Lone Ranger. When questioned concerning the possible tongue-in-cheek, comic relief of this final exhibit, placed at the museum exit, readers' responses were along the lines of "but... but... they've got his actual guns... and the mask, too!"

Perhaps there should be a museum of unintentional hoaxes and urban legends?

Nowadays there is so much sarcasm on the internet that it is difficult to separate satire from that which is intended to be statements of fact. Or perhaps this sarcasm overload has made people more skeptical than they were back in the 1970s?

Myself, I still can't figure out when O'Reilly and other commentators are serious, or sarcastic. LOL!— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

The clue is that "Tides" O'Reilly is an idiot.--BobSpring is sprung! 21:05, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
