Tea room discussion[edit]

Note: the below discussion was moved from the Wiktionary:Tea room.

definition includes "superlative of up a creek". Do we have room for humor in Wiktionary? I hope so, but this seems like weak "humor" at the expense of consistency and correctness. Should this be notes as an intensified version of up a creek? DCDuring TALK 15:34, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I would say this is a variation of up the creek without a paddle, which sounds much more familiar to me. Michael Z. 2008-07-01 22:00 z
The Brigham Young University American Corpus has a 5/5 split on this, for the record. Circeus 22:44, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
