[edit] Keep?

Well, obviously not in its current state. It needs a title with proper formatting and a complete overhaul regarding content, but the actual subject matter is something Strong Bad has now done four times. Perhaps it is worth a page. --Jay (Talk) 17:07, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

I kind of love the title - it just needs to be capitalized 166.137.90.48 15:08, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
I'm on the fence about the content, and will reserve judgement until it's had a chance to get worked on a bit, but the title is not actually directly descriptive of what he's doing. From the current title, I would expect it to be a page about times he tore books apart (or encouraged Strong Mad to do so) rather than his "rewrites". — Defender1031*Talk 15:17, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
A better title would perhaps be "Defacement of Books by Strong Bad." The fact that this subject doesn't have a page already is frankly surprising, and it certainly needs one. I move to keep the page and change the title to something else. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 18:59, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
And this kind of thinking is why I didn't delete the page outright. Hmm, Strong Bad calls his latest version of this "Strong Bad Butchers the Classics", so maybe "Books Butchered by Strong Bad"? A thought, anyway. --Jay (Talk) 05:39, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
Why not actually call it just "Strong Bad Butchers the Classics"? — Defender1031*Talk 17:44, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
Because then we'd need an unnecessary disambiguation page. 99.48.86.26 23:42, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I have to agree with anony about "Strong Bad Butchers the Classics" being too similar to Strong Bad Classics! since that's one of the "names" of the 'toon. I think the names "Strong Bad defacing books" or "Defacement of Books by Strong Bad" are perfectly fine names for the subject. - Catjaz63 12:44, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
I say keep. It's obviously a running gag, but the title needs fixing. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 18:17, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
I have changed the title, and we might need to edit the page a bit more. {{User:Noneoftheaboveorbelow/sig}} 12:36, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Are we gonna get rid of the banner? {{User:Noneoftheaboveorbelow/sig}} 07:56, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
Consensus says keep and Gfd has a pretty good page on his sandbox of what it could look like. Soooo, soon™ - Catjaz63 19:34, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Examples that don't fit, but I feel like showing off anyway

On the subject of Strong Bad's defacement of books, does anyone remember when double side-mouth whisper drafts have been made legal, making breakfast over whatever that record was for, defining hygiene as "how close people are willing to stand next to you", providing seconds of non-ripped-apart fun for The Cheat in your life, and dribbling a little boodroscotch so that the pages will stick together. And I'll probably include a little coloring outside the lines for good measure. And even without a book, it won't stop Strong Bad from shortening an email that was too long, Clanky and having The Cheat call tech support and saying he broke the Lappy again.

Well, I say embrace it! I say deface it! (But this time we might have to write the actual book). 99.48.86.26 07:15, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

The "I say embrace it! I say deface it!" quote could be used as a top-page quote like on Bubs's Shady Business Practices.
But anyways, I feel only the "Kick-A-Ball" example fits as a minor defacement, as the other ones are a bit of a stretch in my opinion. - Catjaz63 12:42, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
Maybe we could do this... FLCTNUy.png g9fdygesagrxsgzogfdrc 21:15, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
