[edit] Unnecessary pluralization

I think that unnecessary pluralizations are frequent enough to be counted as a running gag. e.g., "Feed the Childrens". I can't think of any other specific intances, but I'm prooty sure it's real. ~~~~Four Squiggles 02:00, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Me too. I've notices a ton of these around the site. Some other sightings I've found.
  • Be's
  • kid's book: "Some people wears glasses. Beth looks like a dude."
  • Senorial Day: "Hey there, every peoples!"
  • for kids, The KOT's Good Gravy Easter egg: "I don't lets the Poopsmith near it!"
  • car: "Anyways, on to my cool words that I had to say."

[edit] Article about words with "oi" added in them.

Lately, I noticed that Strong Bad says certain words like a cartoon rodent if you follow me. Like "insoirance" (DVD version of English Paper), "obsoive" (The Facts), "loin" (Radio), and "woik" (Record Book). Not to mention the podcast description for TGS issue 5 (foist). Could the use of "oi" in several words be considered a running gag? 'Cuz I can't seem to start another article by my self.

Isn't that all based on a New York-type accent, or something? --DorianGray

-A Brooklyn accent, eh? Maybe the new article could be titled "Words Pronounced in a Brooklyn Accent." I'm sure somebody can think of a shorter, better title. By the way, "noice" is also said in Long Pants.

AbdiViklas is very smart, why not ask him what would be the correct term for such speech? Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

[edit] Did I miss something?

Why was the page Put your weight on it deleted? It looked like a good page to me. --Trogga 15:37, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

It was just declined by the users. It didn't apparently work for many of them.--H*Bad 15:39, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Alphabatization

Why is -'d listed under "D" while -face is listed under "-"? Bad Bad Guy 02:02, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] I ____, I hunger!

This mainly appears in games. - Cyrus of the Fanstuff Wiki

Spefically, Sinistar for its first video game appearance. The quote actually goes, "Beware, I live! I hunger!" ¡ɯooz + 01:52, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Ow!

Should we make an article listing Teen Girl Squad quotes that follow this format:

  • "Ow! My skin!"
  • "Ow! My browser!"
  • "Ow! My stomach lining!"
  • "Ow! My hopes of reaching 1st base!"
  • "Ow! My most of me!"
  • "Ow! My entire life!"
  • "Ow! My tan lines!"
  • "Ow! My the fact that I was alive a second ago!"
  • "Ow! My style! Or, lack thereof."
    The only problems I could find with writing such an article were that the name I came up with (see headline) is too vague and it seems like we should wait until it spreads beyond TGS. Bad Bad Guy 22:24, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Spelling and Grammar

Should this really be in that category? I feel like only some of these pages fall under that category. It seems to me, this should be a separate category all together, and the pages that overlap should get both categories. — Defender1031*Talk 05:03, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] O' dems

We should add a page for the phrase "o' dems". It's used often.--T3H_CH3K7_888 16:32, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

It's only been used twice. No page. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 16:38, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Correction: It's been used 3 times. On the gold, on the bills, and on the sketchbook. -128.103.10.200 17:40, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but within the same email. Two episodes, two references. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 17:51, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Same email, but two distinct usages. -128.103.10.200 18:06, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Still, I thought I saw it enough times to merit a page. Anything distinctively unique like "o' dems" should get its own page.--T3H_CH3K7_888 19:26, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Like, if "seriously" was only used a few times, that's just a word. But "o' dems" is a phrase, and a unique one. It even captioned a Weekly Fanstuff. That really should be enough for a page.--T3H_CH3K7_888 21:48, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Also in japanese cartoon, he said "o' thems". That's almost the same.--Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 00:03, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Stinkomanual. O'er thems. I say create a page for o' dems. --Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 15:55, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Awesome: Take Two!

This time, I tried to be more specific about which usages I think seem notable: User:Bad Bad Guy/Awesome. I'd like someone else's opinion about the instances in the last section, though. BBG 15:10, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
