No. --Blitzwing 14:40, 24 March 2008 (EDT)

Yep, but I'm too lazy to alphabetize the whole thing. --Blitzwing 18:52, 24 March 2008 (EDT)

Er, MarioWiki:BJAODN#Koopaling isn't an error. Look up "intercourse".Greenpickle 13:56, 28 March 2008 (EDT)

Indeed. No typo, a badly chosen term at the most. I removed it. Time Questions 14:10, 28 March 2008 (EDT)
I reverted your edits. Yes, it's a badly choosen word - That's even the whole freakin' point! While it is technically coorect, you can't deny it sound odd considering the context. --Blitzwing 15:10, 28 March 2008 (EDT)
Ok, the context... I don't find it funny, but some surely will, so I guess it can stay. Discussing what's funny and what's not is the worst we could do, after all. (Still, Sir Grodus' note calling it a "typo" is useless in my opinion - I mean, it isn't a typo.) Time Questions 15:19, 28 March 2008 (EDT)

That simply looks like written by a non-native speaker of English. Any kind of objects may be of male of female grammatical gender in a lot of languages, mind you. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:16, 29 March 2008 (EDT)

Life Shroom[edit]

The text sounds strange... but I don't understand a single word of it. I have played Paper Mario and can confirm that only Life Shroom is a Life Shroom. (and Pirate Goomba is a...) - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:11, 28 March 2008 (EDT)

I think it was trying to say that you can use the "useless flora" to cook Life Shrooms as items. I don't have Paper Mario so i dunno if it's possible. --Blitzwing 16:33, 28 March 2008 (EDT)
Whatever, "useless flora" is just too good to be not on this page. ;) Time Questions 16:38, 28 March 2008 (EDT)

What's bad about the Luigi one? It doesn't sound bad to me. 25px CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 18:32, 22 April 2008 (EDT)

Okay. It's not that funny, though, but that's my opinion. 25px CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png The torpedo ted one was funny...

Organization[edit]

If we are going to do this, let's do it right. How does everyone feel about splitting the page into two sections: Articles and Proposals. Move everything to it's proper place and alphabetize. Objections? -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 20:19, 22 April 2008 (EDT)

Weeelll, that how they did it at Wikipedia (They separated it between weird thing seen the sandbox, April Fool Jokes and article vandalism), but currently, there's only three (rather short) proposals worth archiving, and separating BJAODN in different section would perhaps be giving it too much importance. --Blitzwing 07:00, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

I kinda agree with Blitzwing. But you COULD make different sections on this page; split apart the Articles and Proposals. My Bloody Valentine

So your position is that we are both right. Thanks, DP, that's real helpful. -_- -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 12:00, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

Buzzy Beetle shell[edit]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Tutankoopa use Buzzy Beetle shells as weapons in Paper Mario?--Kahran042 09:28, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

Yes, he did. The article could actually be created. Though in the state it was first, it's of course nonsense. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:21, 25 April 2008 (EDT)

Baby on Wii[edit]

Credit goes to me for finding it, Blitzwing for nominating it as BJAODN worthy, and Plumber for adding it. Dpiconani448.gifMaster LucarioDpiconani448.gif The Aura is with me...

The archive is open for anyone to edit, as long as the added content answers one golden criteria: It must be funny.[edit]

I have two promblems with that sentence. Firstly, everyone has opinions on what is funny. The article currently says that, but that doesn't really help much by just saying it. Plus, it says it's free for editing, doesn't this mean people are able to add new stuff. Like muh Gorge joke? HyperToad

Only stuff that was actually once put into an article is allowed. And I don't think it would make sense to define "funny". That's why it says there shall not be an edit war because of discrepancies of what is funny or not. Time Questions 09:42, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
About your second point, this Wikipedia essays explains why I odmitted to add that rather obvious piece of information. And your first point doesn't makes sense, the rules themsleves says that "funny" can't be defined, so why are you whining about it? --Blitzwing 11:34, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Beezo[edit]

I think the picture was for the Baby Waluigi one. Giratinabylydarioss8.jpgPalkia47Palkia.png Dialga.png

Yeah, I fixed it now. My Bloody Valentine I don't see anything wrong with Beezo either, really. The only thing that seems bad is the latter formatting...

The thnin with Beezo is that the wording is completly screwed up ("They have wings on their back: Capable of flying". Did any of you actually read it :|? --Blitzwing 11:44, 9 May 2008 (EDT)

Sir Grodus[edit]

It's a simple misuse of the apostrophe:

It is a chance that the fish are Sir Grodus'

It should be this instead:

It is a chance that the fish are Sir Grodus's

Meaning "There is a chance that the fish are belonging to Sir Grodus".

I didn't find that notable for BJAODN. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:26, 13 June 2008 (EDT)

I know that guy meant that the fish are belonging to Sir Grodus, but it's still a pretty WTF'ish mistake. Well, at least I know that another user was WTF-ed by it. --Blitzwing 16:41, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
Are you sure that's even a mistake? I always thought that if it ends in 's', there is no reason to put another 's' after the apostraphe. - Score under 16:52, 3 November 2008 (EST) My name is Score_Under. With an underscore, you silly wiki.

How About This Picture[edit]

Aussie Coins.jpg I found it under Uncatorigized Images-User:Nerdy Guy

Why is Beezo Here?[edit]

I thought it was a enemy, Not a joke. I mean why is the entire article here? --Hi!!!Nerdy Guy (Beezo)Click on the "y", please.

It's incredibly badly written. Try to work out this paragraph:

Beezos attack by flying towards Mario or one of his friends using their pitchfork and then get within contact towards the character. They normally appear in packs as they proceed to attack the character that was played by the player. Beezos in packs endlessly appear on the screen; they won’t leave the character alone until the character leaves the current level the player is currently playing in.

Uhm, I think that's just a pun: it's an amusement park ("A-musement"), but it's B-class, so you could also call it "B-musement" (= bemusement) park. Don't know what S-Y and PGB mean by "ugly" and "sicko" though. Time Questions 06:14, 31 December 2008 (EST)

Comments[edit]

I think we should do something about the flood of comments on this page. Most of them are totally unfunny and just make the page ridiculously long. Time Questions 06:19, 6 September 2009 (EDT)

I agree. Originally the idea was to only have comments that were directly associated with the article, like the text entered in the deletion log by a Sysop or in the original edit summary. It never was intended as a place for everybody to drop their own comments afterwards. I think we should get rid of at least some comments, if not all of them. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 08:10, 6 September 2009 (EDT)
I agree, we should delete all useless comments NOW --tucayosz9se5.png(talk) The 'Shroom 12:48, 10 September 2009 (EDT)
As the old version of the rules said, comments that are nothing than "WTF is DIZ", "WOW THIS SUCKS" and "YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME" should be deleted, everything else, if it's funny or informative, should stay. But I guess it's too late to voice my views. --Glowsquid 18:12, 6 October 2009 (EDT)

withdrawn by proposer

Commentaries by users are now strongly discouraged due to overload.

On BJAODN archives, I see some small comments below sections which actually add to the humor, and there is nothing wrong with that, is there? For example, this section's comment just made that section so much funnier. And that's the whole point of BJAODN, right? My comment got removed as per this rule, which I don't mind too much but I'm just questioning the strictness when enforcing this rule. I don't think we should just remove new comments on sight. I believe that comments should only be removed/trimmed down when they reach more than two (as any more than that, and some users may see it as a place to chat and then that would be overload). Therefore, in accordance to these ideas, I'm proposing that the guideline should be reworded to this instead;

Commentaries by users are permitted, but please restrict it to no more than two comments per section.

Comments[edit]

Good points, but I don't think the discouragement angle should be removed altogether. A lot of the time, it seems that folks are commenting for the sake of commenting, which is what's being discouraged (in theory): genuinely witty remarks that do enhance the enjoyment of the entry should still be allowed even under the current rule ("discouraged" =/= "disallowed"). The tricky part is that what's funny for one person is lame for another, but that's gonna be an issue no matter what. I just worry that simply saying they're allowed will make people go crazy with commentary again, and lessen others' ability to remove the excess: imho, it's better to have no comments than two unnecessary ones. I'd support something more like: "Commentary is permitted, but users should show restraint in this matter. Commentary should make the entries funnier, and commenting for the sake of commenting will be removed, as will lengthy back-and-forth exchanges." - it's less restrictive, but still dissuades users from going around commenting on everything, or piling on the comments for particular entries (and does so without resorting to an arbitrary cut-off, which could always backfire and be interpreted as "everything should have 2 comments"). - Walkazo 20:56, 24 December 2012 (EST)

I like your suggestion; I didn't think of that loophole. I want to reword it now, but the proposal is already more than three days old. Should I withdraw it, apply changes, and then re-propose? YoshiKong (talk) 21:07, 24 December 2012 (EST)

allow comments 9-0

Commentaries by users are now strongly discouraged due to overload.

I'm proposing that this rule be reworded to the following;

Commentary is permitted, but users should show restraint in this matter. Commentary should make the entries funnier, and commenting just for the sake of commenting will be removed, as will lengthy back-and-forth exchanges.

...for the following reasons. The current rule restricts/discourages all comments below BJAODN sections. I believe that comments which actually add to the humor should be allowed, like this for example. However, we still want to discourage users from commenting just for the sake of it. It should also be highlighted that all comments should be aimed at either making that section funnier, or just giving an insight about the section. To back this up and prevent overload, we should also specifically say that we don't allow an excessive amount of comments on sections (like back-and forth exchanges between users, as the proposed states). Yes, the rule gives users a lot more freedom in commenting, but it also sets a specific standard, unlike our current rule.

Super Paper Mario[edit]

Do you think we need a separate section pertaining to only Super Paper Mario, as how Luigi's Mansion has a section for itself? Super Paper Mario and articles related to it seem to suffer this consistent subpar melodramatic quality, just as articles on Luigi's Mansion. Oh, and this assumes that the articles on Super Paper Mario are improved. 173.55.155.46 17:00, 9 March 2013 (EST)

I think there's potential for a Super Paper Mario page (Count Bleck, the old Dimentio revisions and Count Bleck's Army have a lot of material, atleast), though the SPM-related article don.t seem as uniformly bad as the LM pages were. --Glowsquid (talk) 17:37, 9 March 2013 (EST)

The Growing BJAODN[edit]

The BJAODN is going to keep expanding, naturally, but its pages are getting a lot bigger as well? Is there going to be a point where the huge pages are going to make an undesirable impact on loading time? If so, what are we going to do? Should we create separate sections based on alphabet (Like MarioWiki:BJAODN A) to make the article smaller? I think that's a plausible way. What do you think?

This is somewhat related, but the reason the "Comments" header wouldn't show properly is that Rpg_gamer's signature from the section above was not coded properly (it doesn't have the </break> parameters at the end), so it messes up the coding for the rest of the page. I changed it to the standard {{User|Rpg_gamer}}, so the header should be fixed now.

Make a separate subpage for places[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

split 9-0
I've noticed that quite a lot of the Other section contains quite a lot of places. My proposal is simple, we create a subpage for places and place all the places in there.

And yes, I am aware this proposal uses the word 'place' a lot.

Don't create subpage[edit]

Comments[edit]

@Mega: We already have subpages for characters, enemies, games, items, Luigi's Mansion, non-Mario content, and proposals, so I don't see the problem in creating a subpages for places. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Possible April Fools 2015 Stuff[edit]

Hi BJAODN,

Can you put this material for April Fools next year? OK, here it is:

TWO CANCELLED MARIO GAMES BASED OF THE DIC TV SHOWS: JUST LIKE THE STORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF SONIC XTREME WENT:

THE STORY BEGINS IN NOA WHEN A FRENCH DEV TEAM WANTS TO MAKE AND USE NINTENDO'S CHARACTERS TO BEAT SEGA'S SONIC CHAR. KING KOOPA'S KOOL GAME WAS A SEGA GENESIS GAME THAT WAS IN THE WORKS VERY SHORTLY AND SHOWN IN NP MAG 93'/2/19, IT SHOWED BOWSER GOING IN A CITY TURNING PEOPLE OF HOLLYWOOD TO KOOPAS OF KOOPAWOOD IT WAS CANCELLED BECAUSE IT WAS ON SEGA'S CONSOLE. WHY? BOWSER HATES MARIO AND SONIC HATES MARIO, THIS WAS BAD CHEMISTERY.

THE NEXT GAME AND FINAL ONE WAS MARIO ALL STARS. NOT THE GAME, BUT BASED OFF THE COMPILATION MARIO TV SERIES. THE GAME FOCUSES ON THE 4 PLAYER TECHNIC THE PLAYERS CONTROL MARIO,LUIGI, TOAD THE PRINCESS AND YOSHI. IT WAS SHOWN AT NINTENDO'S 1993 CHAMPION TOURS AS A PLAYABLE DEMO WITH A STANGE ADAPTER FOR 4 PLAYERS ON SNES SMILAR TO THE NES SATELLITE. IN 1994, THE GAME HAD A FULL ON DEMO TO BRING HOME IT WAS ONLY AVILABLE IN LATIN AMERICA,BRAZIL,FRANCE AND KOREA IT WAS IN THE NINTENDO MAG THEY HAD IN THERE COUNTRY. IN 1995 THE GAME WAS 75% OF COMPLETION AND WAS TIMED OUT OF MAKING THE GAME NINTENDO WAS IMPRESSED AND CANCELLED IT FOR DELAY LIMTATIONS.

THE LAST CANNED GAME WAS SUPER MARIO FX THE GAME WE KNOW NOT MUCH ABOUT BUT EXISTS IN HE DEV OF NINTENDO JAPAN THE GAME USED THE GAMES STYLE AND ENGINE FOR GAMEPLAY WITHIN 1995 AND 1996. THEN THE MOMENT CAME THE GAME WAS MOVED TO THE N64. THE CASTLE STILL EXISTS IN THE GAME WREAKING CREW 96' AS A LOST SPRITE FROM THIS GAME BUT MODDED FOR LATEST LOOK.

Thanks for pranks. MARIOFAN900.

Maybe if you toned down the caps and used spell-check... but really, this isn't the place to do this. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:56, 2 April 2014 (EDT)

i waz in a rush THAT'S WHY!, MarioFan900. p.s. where do i do dis then?

"April Fool's Day"[edit]

I thought it was "April Fools' Day". PTR (talk) 21:22, 4 April 2014 (EDT)

Umm, yeah, and? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 21:26, 4 April 2014 (EDT)
"Fools'" (with the apostrophe after the "s") is the correct spelling. RickTommy (talk) 03:55, 23 November 2014 (EST)

Shadow Queen article in BJAODN?[edit]

Wow, this BJAODN article is actually a normal article, the only joke is the first two phrases in it, I don't see any other jokes in it. By the way, I think the BJAODN Shadow Queen looks better than the oroginal article, and also some elements on this joke page could be reused (and adapted) to the actual Shadow Queen article. Just as a side note, I tried to feature Shadow Queen's page, but failed because of the article's size and flowery writing. Many elements in this joke page are forgotten in the actual true page, and if this page is flowery wrote, addaption to Shadow Queen won't be a problem. My main focus is the personality and Power and abilities sections.Ashley DIY2.png Ashley(and Red) My 3d world.png

Improper captilization[edit]

Funny how the BJAODN page improperly capitalizes the following words "super mario wiki", in the first sentence no less. Can anyone who can edit the MarioWiki namespace fix this? Koopatrol sign.gifExPowerKoopatrol sign.gif talk 20:25, 12 March 2015 (EDT)

That's the joke - Turboo (talk) 20:26, 12 March 2015 (EDT)

Is it ok to remove comments which aren't funny?[edit]

I've seen a few that either add nothing to the joke and even take away from it. I'm not trying to stop commenting, as it's just a few, but I'm just asking. Magikrazy (talk)

I've been on a comments cull before, go for it unless it's one of mine. Obviously though, as some people's humours are different some may get added back in. Yoshi876 (talk)

100m[edit]

I have a suggestion to add to BJAODN:

Go to the 100m page for Donkey Kong and look at the bottom trivia. Something tells me that a Minecraft reference is not in any way important to the Donkey Kong stage itself. Quizmelon

I don't think it's funny enough to be in this, it sounds like it was added by a user who doesn't understand correlation =/= causation or coincidences. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 18:17, 21 May 2016 (EDT)

MK7 item boxes[edit]

I have a new thing that could fit on this page, found on the Item Box page.

'Item Boxes return in Mario Kart 7 with the same design and purpose as Mario Kart Wii, with a rainbow-colored texture slightly less biased against the red area.'

Colours being biased against? New to me,

Quizmelon (talk) 02:00, 16 October 2016 (EDT)

That could work. Snario.jpg The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) Christmasmario.jpg 02:01, 16 October 2016 (EDT)

Mistake[edit]

In the first sentence of this page, it says "super mairo wiki" instead of "Super Mario Wiki". I cannot fix this mistake because the page is protected. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 11:04, 31 March 2017 (EDT)

You're not meant to fix the mistake, whoever did it intended to do it. Yoshi876 (talk)
That's the joke, man. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:07, 31 March 2017 (EDT)
Thanks, I did actually think that it was probably the case, since that is what the article it about, but I was unsure. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 11:09, 31 March 2017 (EDT)

Mario Kart 9[edit]

Unless the admins decide to delete it, please add this page to the Complete "articles" section. That is a hefty amount of vandalism. -- -- ByeGuy1.png ByeGuy.png ByeGuy2.png 12:34, 18 March 2018 (EDT)

I found bad writing on the begining of the article[edit]

It says 'on the super mairo wiki' and it hould be 'on the Super Mario Wiki'. BlueYoshiYoshisStory.png Yoshi Egg 1990 Red-yoshi-with-umbrella.jpg 06:58, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

All of the mistakes on this overview page are intentional. Yoshi876 (talk)

Criteria[edit]

Sometimes i feel like i add some stuff onto the archive that i find funny but gets removed. Is there a rule we can make to better explain what does and does not belong? The HD Guy (talk) 07:28, 30 August 2018 (EDT)

DK Wiki entries[edit]

Mind if we add some DK Wiki entries (if any)? Is there also a way to split the Donkey Kong series articles into its own section? Results May Vary (talk) 15:09, 15 January 2019 (EST)

As the DK Wiki is being merged to this wiki it would make sense to merge BJAODN-worthy content too. Luigi's Mansion has a BJAODN page, so it would most likely be spit into a separate page. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 15:27, 15 January 2019 (EST)

Allow section(s) for certain April Fools' proposals[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

canceled by proposer
This is something I've noticed twice now during April Fools (including this year's). Why is the main content of each April Fools' event archived but not the proposals? I propose that we also archive the various joke proposals as part of April Fools' on BJAODN (not every joke proposal that fits this category, obviously), though I'm also laying out two options for this:

  • Option 1: Archive as MarioWiki:BJAODN/April Fools' 20XX/Proposals.
  • Option 2: Archive as MarioWiki:BJAODN/April Fools' proposals.

Proposer: Toadette the Achiever (talk)
Deadline: April 19, 2019, 23:59 GMT
Date Withdrawn: April 6, 2019, 14:14 GMT

Option 1[edit]

  1. Toadette the Achiever (talk) This is my preferred option. While Option 2 is feasible, it would also result in page bloating.
  2. TheDarkStar (talk) Per Toadette the Achiever.
  3. FanOfYoshi (talk) That seems plausible.

Option 2[edit]

Do nothing[edit]

  1. Alex95 (talk) - Reason why we don't really archive the April Fools' proposals is because that page or the main dumb proposals page would get bloated fast on April Fools'. And it wouldn't really even feel funny anymore, 'cause then people would just be posting on the proposals page silly things just for them to be archived and looked back at later (which you can do with the page history). One of the points of BJAODN is to "not write badly on purpose just to get into BJAODN", and this proposal would go against that. We're lenient on April Fools' because content on the Proposals page doesn't affect the mainspace (in this case). The only exception to this is Pie because long live pie legacy by Ghost Jam or something.
  2. Baby Luigi (talk) I feel like without any sort of regulation, this sort of thing would add up very, very quickly, leading to a very bloated page filled with nothing but joke proposals. One of the reasons Pie For Everyone worked was because it was the only joke proposal available that relied on an established legacy. There's a reason that all other parts of MarioWiki are curated so that only admins can tinker around with new article and stuff, because it increases the stuff to do to clean up afterward if every Tom, Dick, and Harry can do it. Joke curation isn't necessary to the upkeep of MarioWiki and thus we're better off just forbidding an official archive of it all together as a moderate dosage of joke proposals is fine, excessive is not. And in addition, per everything what Alex95 said.
  3. Doomhiker (talk) This kind of against the spirit of BJAODN. If every April the first BJAODN is filled with what otherwise good users created, then what is the point of it? We should stick to not encouraging users to be put on BJAODN, April Fool's or not. Pie is different, as it is an administrator-created running gag to the level of Pirate Goomba being a Pirate Goomba. Per all.
  4. TheFlameChomp (talk) I do not have a problem with allowing users to make April Fools proposals, but I’m not a fan of filling this article with a ton of joke proposals. Per Alex95.
  5. Mario jc (talk) Per all. Anyone could then make an April Fools' proposal and have it archived, which will lead others to join the bandwagon as an excuse to have their joke kept in an official archive. The reason why the "main content" is archived is because it's much more large-scale and has far greater publicity, affecting the main page, CSS etc. whereas the proposals are community-centred.

Comments[edit]

@Alex What about the other instances of "Pie?" Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:52, April 5, 2019 (EDT)

Eh I think the pie thing should be more sparing each year, it's starting to get old. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 19:52, April 5, 2019 (EDT)

Why do you think I tried banning it? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:53, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
We only save Ghost Jam's, so up to him when he posts on on April Fools'. April Fools' is meant for dumb jokes anyway, but people can have fun on the Proposals page for the day with pretty much whatever they want. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:54, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
@Alex95: Uh, everything else archived under April Fools' would also technically go against the spirit of "don't write badly on purpose", and I don't get your point either. This only applies to April Fools' proposals, and isn't meant to be an encouragement for April Fools' vandalism. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 19:56, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
Looking through the archived proposals we have, they are either hilariously misguided or by people who didn't know where they were, or just hilariously written. Perhaps these were before we had the proposal archive? As for the currently archived April Fools' stuff, those are coordinated projects created by the administrative team, sometimes spread across multiple pages. This won't encourage vandalism, but I don't see the point in archiving every joke proposal.
tl;dr really up to the admins what goes and what stays, but others may agree with you on this, idk. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:01, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, I intend to leave some room for common sense over which proposals are archived. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 20:08, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
Can we have an alternate option where the objectively unfunny April Fool's thing from this year is wholly redacted? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:23, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
What exactly are you referring to? MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 20:26, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
The whole "Pink Donkey Kong Jr." thing that for once I was far from the only person to complain about. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:28, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
Humor is subjective. I personally enjoyed it. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 20:34, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
No one on the Main page's talk page came to defend it, with several people complaining. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:39, April 5, 2019 (EDT)
Typically users don't really look at talk pages, tbh. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 20:42, April 5, 2019 (EDT)

A month ago, several comments were removed from the BJAODN for being late comments. I feel that some of the comments were actually pretty funny (I cannot say the same for my own), so I'd like to know why exactly late comments are bad if they're funny.
