A hall of fame dedicated to the tireless pedants who make wikipedia talk pages the most excruciatingly unbearable places imaginable.
International Talk Like a Pirate Day – looks like made up junk to me, the website link doesn't exist — Tarquin 15:56, 19 Sep 2003 (UTC)
These really should be sourced on where they come from. This is an encyclopedia afterall. For example, where does "Arggh I need a hamburger!" come from? Or "Arr ye barnicle encrusted bilage rats!" .. Should we as Wikipedia editors invent sayings up that sound pirate-like? A couple of these I think can be sourced to Treasure Island. Stbalbach 05:19, 25 September 2005 (UTC)
It's a shame that such a useful, valauble tool as wikipedia requires such loathsome people to maintain it. Their obsession with sources and neutrality can be seen by anyone brave enough to visit the pages discussing the BNP, etc. For the good of humanity, please, all shoot yourselves.
Oh, and the winner is
This article doesn't really make sense. How can the kuwaiti national team be playing in the bulgarian leage. And how can the team have won the league title 339.5 times ?? ….... in 80 years? If someone doesn't provide some sources, i'll edit this article further down. Jacoplane 22:45, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

US rocker and writer Henry Rollins was reported to the National Security hotline during his recent Australian tour because of a book he was reading on flight to Brisbane.
A furious Rollins was informed he was "nominated as a possible threat" for reading Jihad: The Rise Of Militant Islam In Central Asia.
The incident happened on a flight from Auckland on the recent Big Day Out tour.
Rollins told Australian fans during his tour that he received a letter from a "nice woman" who worked "in one of those government areas that deals with anti-terrorism matters."
He posted the letter on his website.
"Please tell your Government and everyone in your office to go fuck themselves. Baghdad's safer than my hometown and your PM is a sissy," he wrote.
Respect to Mr. Garfield there.
In further news, I'm off out now to be a feminist.

The Arctic Monkeys and James Blunt are leading a new crop of hugely popular UK acts, selling CDs at record-breaking rates
says it all really
legal song downloads, on which record companies and shops alike are staking their futures, more than quadrupled last year.
i blame home taping, or alternatively the lack of it
CD prices are coming down all the time – the average album now costs £9.79, according to the BPI.
a shame then that I would be expected to pay vastly inflated sums for any non mainstream album I might want to buy from HMV and the like. oh wells! i guess i just must suck at being a consumer
Supermarkets now account for 28% of all CD sales
says it all (again) really
Music Week magazine's Ajax Scott says the industry's biggest challenge is work out how to sell fans extra material – like exclusive performances and backstage footage – through devices such as the internet and mobile phones.
money money money. somebody please shoot this man. thanks
and remember kids, downloading music is the most evil thing you can do, and is the root cause of 99% of terrorism and other instances of moral decline
I have no idea how to tell my flatmates, who I have lived with for two and a half years, that I will be leaving at the end of this term (and hopefully retaking the third year next year) and thus will probably never seeing them again after a month's time.
Man I really have completely fucked this year up. This is not a good situation to be in.
Enough moping, I need to buy more albums, or something.

Goddamn North American ironic hipster imagery tugging at my brain. Must resist it. But it's too powerful. Man, I need to go live in Canada or something. But they just went conservative. Shit. Quite like the cartoon cards though, even if I kind of think I should be throwing up at them instead.
Anyway, my Valentines Day will consist of my being stylishly drunk and acerbic, or alternatively, just moping. Probably the latter. Listen to Huggy Bear, Prolapse, any bands with a fucked up boy-girl vocal type deal happening. Can't think of any others. Am in quite a good mood though.

Due to a technical error , you will not have received the response from the TTP office.
Response? To what? I don't remember sending anything.
This is the original email including application and skills forms Please complete and return to email@example.com
Thank you for enquiring about TTP. TTP is a flexible part-time work experience programme where students work up to 10 hours a week for £6.00 per hour in local companies. Would you please complete the application process by filling in the attached forms and email them back to firstname.lastname@example.org Please note the placements can be anywhere in Coventry or Warwickshire – not just the Science Park.
If you are a penultimate year student you are eligible to apply for Shell STEP, I suggest you visit www.shellstep.org.uk!
Um, I'm not. And no thanks.
We will get in touch with you if you have been selected for interview.
It is important to keep us informed if you change address or telephone number. Every year students miss the opportunity of a placement because we cannot get in touch with them, sometimes at short notice.
How incredibly tragic.
If you find that you need to withdraw your application from the programme, please let us know so that others may be considered.
I haven't applied for it in the first place, so I really can't be bothered.
To conclude: go fuck yourselves.
