[edit] Delete

Well-done article on the first edit, MHarrington, but I have to say this. These appearances are not related to each other, nor is purple anything special or unusual. I vote delete, for I see no running gag here. —BazookaJoe 02:07, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, and if we give purple an article, to be fair we have to give blue and red and yellow and green and brown and orange and black and white and tan and pink and every other color a page. Which would be red-iculous.-LordQuackingstick 02:10, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Agree, deleteLoafing 07:15, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
I'd like to give this page some more time. If no other reference to purple comes, it should be deleted. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 23:37, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, what they said. Unless we want to waste our time making countless color pages (red, yellow, green, brown, scarlet, black, ochre, peach, ruby, olive, violet, fawn, lilac, gold, chocolate, mauve, cream, crimson, silver, rose, azure, lemon, russet, gray, purple, white, pink, orange, and blue to name a few), let's just cut it short with this one. -Brightstar Shiner 23:53, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
I'd argue that purple is not an adequate concept for a running gag. As LQ said, yellow is equally deserving of a page, as are other colors. I'm not prepared to have a page for each color and where it's mentioned, so this article is the beginning of a slippery slope. Delete.

I c'n just see these other colour pages now: "Strong Bad says he has a big old red head in do over"... "Homestar refers to The Cheat as a yellow dog in army"... "In big white face, Strong Bad says Bubs is of the blue-headed persuasion"... And so on. Articles like that wouldn't be that great. Purple is only used so often in strange ways because it's a funny word (and has no rhyme, except maybe "burp'll"). --DorianGray 00:04, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
If there were more instances like the TGS one ("I can count to purple backwards"), then I could see this being a running gag. However, I don't think the other mentions of "purple" are very unusual. Trey56 00:08, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Agree to all. Delort. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 00:21, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Whoever made this is a colorist. That's right, I said it! You obviously think that purple is better than other colors, are you a sexist and a racist also? You disgust me! ... In all seriousness though, i think that this page is irrelevant. Burninate it. DeFender1031 18:24, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

When I first saw the page title, I thought "This seems like an actual running gag for a change!" Unfortunately, I think that no longer. Honestly, it's a bunch of barely connected coincidences. Delort. Bluebry 18:36, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
