[edit] Separate Sections?

The ones that are, like, "Food written as Letter-hyphen-syllable" seem to be distinct from the other instances. Is there any way we can/should note that? Maybe a separate section... (I'd say they're different enough to have their own see also page, but as many as there are, they seem to only appear in two toons. Also, I think Truncated Words was a more concise title. - 16:39, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

More specifically, I'll say more or less what I said on the other talk page. It seems to me that these gags fall into three distinct categories. The one I listed before, ones that necessarily end in a "sh" or "ch" sound, and a third class, namely whoev, chockle, and leg', which don't fall well into the other two categories. I dunno if/how we can note that, though. - 16:47, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

I posit again that "aysh/ache" words deserve their own page, or at least their own section. The most recent toons each have a new example. - 14:23, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

And I still don't think so. It's all part of the larger joke. — Defender1031*Talk 19:01, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm aware. That's why I'm hoping for more opinions. 1 vs 1 is not consensus one way or the other. - 21:07, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
Note also that even if it's part of this "larger joke" it could still be delineated into subdivisions. - 21:19, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Available for proms and pizza parties

Should The Cheat's "He's a-so available for proms..." line from mile be included? It's not quite the same, but... OptimisticFool 19:05, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't think that fits so much. - 19:59, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Sbemail "Love Poems"

I've had a thought: does "'Tis ne'er e'er o'er,/ My lo'er o' clo'er" from sbemail "love poems" count? Strong Vader 23:05, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] independent

if they're never actually said, but only seen, do they count? like Pom Pom's magazine, which says "For your considerasche" does that merit a remark on this page? The Knights Who Say Ni 21:17, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Certainly. — Defender1031*Talk 21:43, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Now that we have expectasche and considerasche given, is that enough to say we can change all the incidences of -aysh to -asche? or do we not want to do that yet? The Knights Who Say Ni 04:21, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
