Last names

I think that including Rondleman and Bob Statesman is over-the-top. Last names are usually pronounced with m'n. Those last names just don't fit the gag. —BazookaJoe 22:25, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, Rondleman and Statesman aren't words you see every day. Rondleman might not fit, as it is a name, but Statesman isn't an actual name, and would be more commonly pronounced with the "man" pronounced like the regular word, if that mede any sense. Dr. Clash 22:30, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
Nevertheless, Statesman still functions as a name. I don't think I would ever hear it pronounced "Bob States-man" in verbal American English. —BazookaJoe 22:41, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

In any case, Cableman should stay. It's usually cable-man when I hear it. Dr. Clash 22:44, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Capitalizing

  • Should we capitalize "pronounced as"? Most (probably all) of our articles are capitalized, why should this one be left out? --TheYellowDart(t/c) 23:43, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Delete?

er, why in the HE** does this page exist?!!! i mean, who cares if man is m'n? sure, it's a running gag, but who cares? I mean, wtf? If i knew how to delete pages, i would delete this 1 instantly. STUPID-PAGE DEUCE!!!!! bell out. Im a bell 02:03, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

  • oh, and I reached this page randomly Im a bell 02:05, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
  • seriously, WHO WOULD VISIT THIS PAGE?! Im a bell 02:05, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
There's no reason to yell. Generally, running gags get pages if they're moderately interesting and appear in several toons. M'n has these qualities and is worthy of it's own page, so you don't have to repeatedly bash it with comments like that. -Brightstar Shiner 02:27, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
O_O ahem... sorry Im a bell 00:04, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
It's okay. We just don't like it when people do that sort of thing. No problem, really. ^_^ -Brightstar Shiner 00:06, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Nevertheless, this IS a pointless page. Prouncing m-a-n with an unstressed a in compound words ending with those letters is normal. Why are we commenting on it?

So you would say "Superm'n" as opposed to "Superman"? And this is normal to you? --DorianGray 18:32, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, Um, DorianGrey, have you ever been to Baltimore? Because I live there, and that is how we talk: Pronouncing "man" as "m'n". And it is an unneccecary page. --Jangles5150 (words+helps) 18:38, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
While I don't agree with your methods, I do agree this page is unnecessary, I have a feeling it's a part of Hometsar's speech impediment. Delete. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 13:37, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
