[edit] 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. - 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. - 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. - 19:10, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Can you think of any context where saying "of thems" would be grammatically correct? Or even just "thems"? Firefox's spellchecker doesn't even recognize it as a word (well, okay, it also has issues with "axe" and "sequitur" and "teleport", but still...) --Jay (Talk) 20:08, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Who, me? I can't; that's why I think it's unique enough to have a page. - 20:49, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Now that we have a Plural instead of Singular page up and running, I do not see any point in keeping this page. Delete, and take the information from this page to add on to the other page, maybe as its own little section. Sbmaniac 01:40, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
