This should have all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy's deleted history (edited down to a couple lines only) right? --Connel MacKenzie 15:28, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

"See also"[edit]

"See also" won't be kept last so long as there's an "add new entry" link atop the page. That adds a last entry. So either get rid of that link or move "See also" to the top (not as its own section, I suppose, but just as a link) or live with it not being last or keep moving it down. I would do the second of those four options, but that's just me. —msh210 06:47, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Bad jokes and other deleted nonsense

I have a funny feeling that every one of these "jokes" are only funny to one person. plus, there are probably other reasons to delete this —This unsigned comment was added by Girlnotboy (talkcontribs) at 21:33, 22 June 2011 (UTC).

  • Keep. I think some of it is funny. :) —CodeCat 21:46, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Keep. I like this page. The rationale for deletion is a bit sketchy. A lot of the jokes are groaners, hence "bad" jokes. —Internoob (DiscCont) 22:15, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Keep. We need a bit of fun here to stop our brains turning into mush. --Mglovesfun (talk) 09:18, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Delete Will easily (if it has not already) turn into a "hall of fame" for vandals. (see meta:Don't feed the trolls) --Hydrox 12:12, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Keep. - -sche (discuss) 15:43, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't miss it, personally! Equinox 15:52, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Keep. There's nothing wrong with a bit of harmless humour. --Joshua Issac 01:47, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Kept per consensus. --Daniel 05:07, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

I am disappointed this passed. Surely you can find other places or ways to amuse yourselves, and not waste space by archiving unfunny vandalism attempts here? --Pilcrow 05:33, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
You can just not read that page, if it bothers you, Pilcrow. Or even renominate it for deletion, eventually, but I wouldn't bother trying to change that consensus. Surely there are easier and better things to do. --Daniel 16:26, 27 July 2011 (UTC)


honorable mention[edit]

I'm not adding this to the main page because it's actually valid and so hasn't been deleted, but from [[cope#Verb]]: To cover (a joint or structure) with coping. I wanted to become a finish carpenter, but I just couldn't cope. - -sche (discuss) 10:14, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
