Enough references?

There aren't enough references. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:40, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

I think the "thems" count. And even if not, there are 3 "dems" listed. -170.223.0.54 22:33, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, the plural and the missing "f" make "o' thems" count. And it says that it shouldn't be a seperate article. Where else would this go? I think you have the wrong template. --Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 12:54, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
But "O' Thems" aren't what the page title is. And there are only two toons where "O' Dems" occur anyway. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:14, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
I got it!! Put japanese cartoon and other "o' thems/thems" in an "Other" category. Which is done now. --Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 18:23, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I searched "thems" and it turned up a whole lot of responses. So how about a new page, something like "Plural 'them'" or something. Similar to Singular Instead of Plural, but opposite. *lightbulb* Do we have a page for Plural Instead of Singular? There are more instances of that than "dems" and it would make more sense, making this page delete-able. What do you say? --Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 18:31, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Anything that gets this worthless page outta here is good enough for me. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:26, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Mumble grumble... I'll get on it. --Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 20:27, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
OK, it's not complete, but it's made. A sysop can delete this now. --Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 20:44, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
I still think the "dems" construction is unique enough to merit its own page. The other page will have a distinct scope, with a couple of cases which overlap. -170.223.0.54 21:29, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Nah, I agree with Michael. Besides, Plural Instead of Singular works better anyway. --Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 22:13, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
I also agree with Michael. – The Chort 18:53, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
But "O' Dems" isn't just pluralized. It's said with a D and omitting the F. -170.223.0.54 19:10, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
