That Beardsley image is really funny, though. It's just a bit of harmless whimsy.

Anyway, it's been taken down again. What a boring world we live in, eh Peter?

Yer a good lad, Peter.

The North Face have been photoshopping their products into images on Wiki articles.

Started off quite sly...



...but they got a wee bit carried away...





Almost like they wanted to get caught!

Top Cat
Writing about the cat Fancy
Quote
In the film, which features robots as a plot device, he is able to disguise himself as a feminine robot. His voice is a bit narrower and more "fancy" than in the TV series. He also has a girlfriend, with whom he has an uneasy relationship. Matthew Piazzi voices him in the movie.

Someone got bored halfway through doing their homework.

Edit; Well that changed quickly. The Habitat and Adaptation section previously read ''Habitat and Adaptation - Kaitley Stanley is a science beast.''

If you look at the Talk page, you'll notice that there is a war going on between Wiki editors, vandals and probably Foglesong himself.

I almost always go straight to the talk page behind an article to see who's being proprietorial & how big the dog is that they have in the race. if there are experts slugging it out, that's great, but sometimes it's just the wikipedia nazis trying to make a point about verifiability being more important than having the good faith say-so of someone that everyone there knows is the expert in the field.
don't get me started.
the talk page that used to be behind the article on 'bass guitars' (& even me writing it like that would've set them off) was a good one.

this, from the page on nuclear weapon design (it's for work, OK?) tickled-

"Holding an exploding bomb together is the greatest challenge of fission weapon design."
