Can anyone confirm the Dutch meaning? It was posted by an anon who had also posted a nonsense parody entry. — DavidL 9:39, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)


Hmm, I posted the Dutch meanings. The anonymous IP has posted the English definition. So maybe those should be checked. It is also not necessarily so that 1 IP address = 1 user. There could be many users behind one IP address. Polyglot 10:21, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I fear this "gourd-shaped vegetable" definition may be a carefully-done hoax. I looked through the first hundred or so google hits and couldn't find any corroboration. The connection with pookie is intriguing, although our pookie page doesn't include the English term-of-endearment sense anyway.

While we're at it, we should check whether the Dutch meaning is really poker (as stated by the translation) or kindling (as suggested by the definition). (I presume the former.)

Oh. And after contemplating the above, take a look at w:Wikipedia:All Your Bad Joke And Other Deleted Nonsense Are Belong To Us#From Navigium Flammae. —scs 13:37, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

I added a reference, I'm not sure it's in the correct format? --Kaasje 11:38, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
