The expression itself is pretty innocuous. Mihia (talk) 02:12, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
But the definition will also appear on the Main Page. — SMUconlaw (talk) 18:00, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
I agree with Ungoliant. —Granger (talk · contribs) 04:07, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
Fair enough. It is a shame, though, as this is one of my all-time favourite expressions. Mihia (talk) 21:53, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
There is consensus that this isn't suitable for the Main Page. — SMUconlaw (talk) 18:21, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

January 2017[edit]

The verb as well, I think. DonnanZ (talk) 10:47, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
Hm, perhaps. But the verb sense is well-known; the noun has some oddities going on which may be interesting. But if both fit, ¿por qué no los dos?Kleio (t · c) 19:07, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
The point is it will be WOTD only once perhaps, so both noun and verb should be covered. DonnanZ (talk) 00:37, 23 January 2017 (UTC).
However, we generally do not feature more than one part of speech. The template is not really set up for that purpose. — SMUconlaw (talk) 17:12, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
Noun and verb senses set for 4 January 2018 (birth anniversary of floral artist Junichi Kakizaki). — SMUconlaw (talk) 19:35, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
