When i saw the title, i thought it was instances of things similar to "i can count to g" and stuff, but i wondered what other instances of counting incorrectly are there? Are there enough to be page-worthy? This however is not about incorrect counting, but merely counting, which seems too common and mundane an activity to be a running gag.

If we do keep this page, it needs a major rename - exactly two instances in that list, both from the same 'toon, actually involve someone counting incorrectly. --Jay (Talk) 07:40, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Most of them seem to be "Counting" rather than "Counting Incorrectly", which, in my opinion, seems like a less notable topic. --DorianGray 08:02, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Indeed. Just how is Strong Bad counting down from 5 to 1 an instance of "counting incorrectly"? Is it against the rules of mathematics to count down nowadays? And why is it "incorrect" to shave it off and count to three? Was the man supposed to shave it off and count to infinity? If we keep the title, then only Date Night and TGS 7 would really count (if you excuse the pun), and if we change it to counting, then isn't it just a example of a non-physical spoon? – The Chort 16:29, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
It appears this page is largely about either counting incorrectly or repetitively. If it's kept, the title should reflect this. No real opinion on the merits of the article. Heimstern Läufer 17:06, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not even sure Date Nite counts as "incorrect counting", because nobody actually does count anything in that 'toon (Marzipan just implies that Homestar can't count to four, and Homestar even understands and takes offense from the statement.) I'm in favor of baleetion, personally, but a rename is a given. --Jay (Talk) 18:39, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
I say we point out the more obvious ones and base the page on that. You know, the ones that are just blatantly incorrect. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 20:24, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
But there aren't enough obviously incorrect ones to warrant a page. — Defender1031*Talk 20:25, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Um, then... get the heck the rid of the dang page, dang it! --TheYellowDart(t/c) 20:27, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
