The picture at the top of this page, with the right turn sign, reminds me of the time someone played a prank on our house: They moved the right turn sign out from the edge of our driveway and planted it smack in the middle of our front lawn. I forget if that was soon after my mom gave out raisins for Halloween treats. {{User:Simsilikesims/sig}}  20:32, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

I see you are shepherding this one, good; I would have given newbie his second {{ICU}} in two days, with fix=Strident and ranty. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:58 4-Sep-19

Ok, that was the intention. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:00, 5 September 2019 (UTC)


Wikipedia sez unifying the Muslims against the Crusaders was originally Nur's idea, going as far as marrying into a family, yikes! There is a possibility for irony here. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif11:55 15-Sep-19

Yes, I did read that. Saladin married Nur-a-din's widow as well. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:43, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Irony and palace intrigue! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif22:13 15-Sep-19
I deleted a paragraph you wrote on Saladin's youth. It hints at a comedy strategy but is cryptic. Feel free to re-add it if you can develop it! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif04:25 19-Sep-19
And another thing: The thesis of section When Dicky didn't meet Sali is that the two never met, betrayed by the photo and caption. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif17:14 19-Sep-19
They never met, that's true but in films they do. Hollywood?--Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:31, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Being a jerk

Simsie has been editing a page that you have re-moved to Don't be a jerk. It seems as though this is an update of the page formerly (and still) at Uncyclopedia:Don't be a dick. The new one should be in the Uncyclopedia: namespace, and if she has a problem with calling people a dick then the original page should go away (with redirect, because there are links to it everywhere). It is not a page in the Encyclopedia but a policy-page or project-page. AmIRite? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:52 23-Sep-19

The article was originally titled M:Don't be a Jerk. I just removed the 'm'. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:51, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Getting the word out about Uncyclopedia

Hi Romartus, I'm back after a long hiatus, it's been a while.

I've been wondering, Uncyclopedia seems to be somewhat obscure, especially after getting the Wikia site closed down and moving to the .ca domain. Which I think is a shame because there's some real funny material here that I think more people should know about. Have you ever thought about promoting the site more? Like maybe you could get a Youtube celebrity to mention the site in one of their videos? Or do you think the site is better laying low?--HolUp (talk) 21:32, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Hi HolUp. Welcome back. I agree that losing the Wikia address and site was a bit of a downer as regards publicising this site. In exchange, we have got back to the parody of wikipedia look which was lost when Wikia-Fandom changed the 'look' of the original site. At the moment, things are a bit quiet here. The current Trumpian lunacy makes writing UnNews a bit surreal right now. Regards publicising this site, we still have a facebook page which I update now and again. Nothing on YouTube and a recommendation from a YouTuber personality would make a difference. I just don't know how we would get their attention right now. Anyways, glad to see you're still around. Just one thing though. Please don't go and improve Featured Articles? Plenty of other articles require writing here and updating. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:59, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
In practice, you don't "get a [web] celebrity to mention the site". You pay them to. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif14:18 7-Oct-19

UnNews:Whistleblowers threatened by The Don


Thanks for this. I've fleshed it out based on current events. But your Source URL goes to the website and not to the specific article. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif22:25 7-Oct-19

PS--At this hour, I don't see "whistleblower" on Huffpost at all. I found a source on the BBC, though it mostly aligns with my new spin on the emergence of the "second whistleblower." If you can provide your source, add it in.

It seems griping about how the "Trumpian lunacy" doesn't inspire you to write, ultimately inspired you. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:05 8-Oct-19

Trumpian Lunacy (no quotes) is real in my view. Whether it is manufactured or real, the results look the same. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:04, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

I see it differently: Impeachment inquiry without a Bill of Impeachment, which would have to state High Crimes and Misdemeanors and would carry political costs for listing charges that are disproven; anonymous accuser (a Trump subordinate) openly coordinating with chairman of investigating committee; apparent charges are things the opposition does all the time; overt motive to distract from Biden shaking down Ukraine to line son's pockets. Political motives are to distract Trump and run out his clock, also to dominate the network news agenda each evening.

Nevertheless, I can't even turn this into an UnNews (because I've already written several along the same lines!) and am camping out looking for other people's projects to copy-edit. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif14:31 9-Oct-19

I didn't believe G.W. Bush should be impeached, despite all the mess and apparent incompetency in several areas (not that I could've done any better: after all, it is likely the most difficult job in the world) because we do not impeach presidents for mere incompetence. However, I do believe this latest thing with the Ukraine does reach the level of High Crimes and Misdemeanors that the Constitution requires for impeachment. In the aftermath of the Clinton impeachment, Republicans made it so Congressional committees could issue subpoenas without requiring a full vote of the entire House. Now, of course, that the shoe is on the other foot, they regret it. Right now, it is just an impeachment inquiry: an inquiry to determine if enough evidence exists to issue a bill of Impeachment. Impeachment is no cause for celebration; it is cause for mourning. Nobody wanted to have to do this. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 00:07, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

No, no one wanted this. But as Rep. Al Green put it: "I'm concerned that if we don't impeach this president, he will get re-elected." Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:50 10-Oct-19

On the contrary: impeachment proceedings if unwarranted are more likely to cement Trump's base, making him MORE likely to get re-elected (as happened with Clinton). This is why Pelosi waited so long to start the inquiry: she knew some members of the DNC were eager to jump the gun for political reasons. But no president is above the law. No president must be above the law, or else we have a Dictator in Chief, another Hitler or Mussolini to override Parliament (or in our case Congress) to get his way. If the President breaks the law, there must be consequences. Holding back funds that had been earmarked by Congress and approved by Congress for a specific purpose, and making them conditional on a bribe, is a crime. Requiring a bribe to release government money, is a crime. The only way to convict someone in the office of the Presidency who has committed a crime, is to impeach him. If there is enough evidence for a Bill of Impeachment, then after the Bill of Impeachment is passed, the evidence will be presented before the Senate to make the determination for indictment. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 02:51, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
The Bidens shouldn't have traded on their contacts for lucrative postings but so far no evidence this was actually done illegally. Accusing your political enemies of corruption is a Putin move. Now copied by Putin's great admirer. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:45, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

UnNews:Grumpy Barr loses a sibling

Babar is a different Barr, you know Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif11:19 12-Oct-19

Ok, I will revert to previous link. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:22, 12 October 2019 (UTC)



Ought to be easy to turn some of this into humor! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif13:06 15-Oct-19

I will look at that. You won't be surprised that we differ in our appreciation of AOC. :) Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:26, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

No I won't. Perhaps she reminds you of a favorite cocktail waitress.... Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif15:34 15-Oct-19

Haha! Except I don't drink cocktails. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 16:52, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

If she gets her way, you can make mine a double. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif17:20 15-Oct-19

As usual, the right is using "socialist" the way McCarthyists used "communist". Same game, a few decades later. And the Constitution is on her side, like it or not. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 17:20, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Not the same game. McCarthy was a conspiracy con artist; that does not make everyone one, even though MSNBC is teaching to ridicule as "conspiracy theorists" anyone who holds that the 3-year drive to eliminate Trump might be a conspiracy. At any rate, AOC calls herself a socialist and has just endorsed Sanders and vowed to bring "worker's revolution" to the ballot box, so no McCarthyism here. AOC's election was Constitutional (and attaining 30, she now has all the qualifications she needs for the Senate, God help us), but exactly none of the Green New Deal fits under the Enumerated Powers in I § 8, not even under the General Welfare clause, which didn't even mean "welfare." There is nowhere to take this except n-wrongs-make-a-right.

Although everyone from Zucker from Maxine wants people to confront adversaries on every forum, this is a humor wiki, Romartus looks ready to write an article on AOC, and we ought to be helping him envisage a comedy theme. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:27 20-Oct-19

As you can see, I am still chewing my digital pencil on what to write exactly. :) Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:41, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

The laugh riot may accelerate, as her only goal that she might be able to achieve in the next year is recruiting more like her to wage primary-election challenges to the alleged "moderates" in her party. How To Win Friends And Influence People. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif14:12 21-Oct-19

If I was writing a humor article on her, the angle I would take is on the overreaction to her (gasp) dancing somewhere and actually being recorded doing it. From the way some people reacted to the video of her dancing, you would have thought dancing was illegal. (Fact: Some religious types find dancing against their religion. Maybe that's where that came from.) Because modern teens "never" tape themselves on their cell phones dancing. Possible alternate career as a musician? -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 20:17, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

On the moving of signposts (picture at top of page)

The picture at the top of this page, with the right turn sign, reminds me of the time someone played a prank on our house: They moved the left turn sign out from the edge of our driveway and planted it smack in the middle of our front lawn.
