[edit] Man, is there anywhere potatoes shouldn't be?

I was questioning a little bit when I first looked at the page, but now looking at the History, I think a discussion is in order. Seems that pet show has been repeatedly added and removed by different people. Personally, I don't really think it belongs, because no emphasis is put on the word, and it's used in a normal context. It's almost certainly a coincidence. Should we delete it? Lira (talk) 16:03, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Also interesting from looking at the history is that the first time it was added, I removed it for exactly this reason. Then it got added and removed a couple times, then added once again and then I cleaned up the wording... I guess I didn't stop to think whether it actually belonged the second time. (I don't remember specifically making any of these edits, but clearly I must have made them, because the wiki says I did.) Now that the question is being explicitly brought up though, I tend to agree with original me that it doesn't belong. — Defender1031*Talk 16:44, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
I say it does, because Strong Bad does emphasize the word in his usual unusual way. Aren't many cartoon characters known for their deliberate mispronounciations? 20:04, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Eh, I just watched it, and I'm kinda neutral on whether or not his pronunciation is out of the ordinary. I mean, his voice is known for making words like that sound different. I kind of doubt it was intentional by The Brothers Chaps. I'm still for getting rid of it as of now. Lira (talk) 20:15, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, so that's the thing, he DOESN'T accentuate his pronunciation of the word there like he does other times. Compare them if you don't believe me. — Defender1031*Talk 21:00, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
I don't think it should be there. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:21, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
I think we have the majority vote, then. I baleeted it. Lira (talk) 22:47, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
