I am very sorry to say that I am not very good at being nuetral, so this may need clean up. I cannot detect where it is just my inturpritation, as for if I could I wouldn't have any opinion at all would I? Does that even make sense? --Jellote 16:30, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Most of this is exaggeration. Delete. — 205.188.116.197 (Talk | contribs) 16:49, 23 May 2009 (UTC) (left unsigned)
I don't see any reason to delete this, it's a perfectly appropriate subject to have an article on this wiki. Sure, it could use some revision and cleanup, and the original author went out of their way to ask for other editors to help out with that.  Green Helmet 16:55, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
It is an appropriate subject, but maybe not enough for its own page Ilovehr (Talk | contribs) 14:07, 12 October 2009 (UTC) (left unsigned)

[edit] Irony?

I hate the word ironic. I can never use it correctly. However, I do not believe that it is ironic that water on the knee "is a disease caused by fluids accumulating in the kneecap." Can anyone with an education above 7th grade help?--66.235.23.114 04:52, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, I'm a 7th grader (I just finished my 6th grade year,) but it is ironic. They're pouring water on their knees, right? Water is a fluid. "Water on the Knee" is a disease caused by fluids accumulating in your kneecap. They're pouring water on their knees, which is a word-play gag pf the disease. I think this helped...

I have to agree with 66.235.23.114 .. the word "ironic" is not used correctly in this instance. It's just a play on words. OptimisticFool 13:39, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
There are a few different kinds of irony: 1) sarcasm is an example of verbal irony, which is unique in that it is intentional on the part of the speaker; 2) dramatic irony is when the speaker does not know something, but the audience does; 3) situational irony is when there is a disparity of intention and result, for example if a safety device were to cause serious injury (for which there are many tragic real-world examples).
In this case, it's really not clear if the person who created the poster was aware that water on the knee was an actual affliction or not. If we assume that the were not, then it is irony; if we assume that they were, then it is a play on words.  Green Helmet 15:51, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Ya, this clearly should be removed.

Who cares? It doesen't even appear in any other cartoon! - POM Z 04:11, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

It played a fairly major role in a fairly minor toon. Keep. — DeFender1031*Talk 04:22, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
I am for this page. SnappySoda 05:29, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
This should be kept, as Broternal Order of Different Helmets didn't appear in any other toon. ColdReactive 13:57, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
Neither did C'mon! it's FOG!. Therefore, I say this shouldn't go either.Strongkinghomsarsmith 14:02, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
No reason to delete this article. Organizations such as this only need one appearance. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:25, 12 November 2009 (UTC)
C'mon! Who's side are you on, anyway?- POM Z 23:53, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
That's it. This argument has gone too far.
