wow. i do not think i haved ever seen something so stupid. delete this garbage. Seriously 11:51, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

I think it's a good idea, but you'd need to find at least three or four instances to warrant a page about such a "Nondescript Subject". Thunderbird 23:51, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, Seriously. I think you can be a bit more polite than that. Has Matt? (talk) 23:52, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
Unluckily, I have to agree with deleting it. It doesn't really help the wiki in Homestar information. Bluebry muffin 14:10, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Yeah. This is the Homestar Runner Wiki. If we wanted to list so much about grammar, we might as well create a separate wiki. teeeffoh! 22:19, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Geez, what's with all the rudeness on this page? Anyway, I agree with Thunderbird; this is an interesting idea and it will work eventually, but I think it needs to happen more often before it gets a page. -Unknownwarrior33 03:32, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
Okay-I made this page, and would probably not care if it was deleted, but you don't have to go out with rudeness and horrible grammar/spelling/capitization. —Einstein runner (thorax.pngfile_icon.gifmail_icon.gif)
Me again. Someone edited the page and made one heck of a lot better. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! —Einstein runner (thorax.pngfile_icon.gifmail_icon.gif)

Actually "Over There" is also gag on "Over Gatlinburg."



There's the Cheat Commando "Reinforcements". Does that qualify?

Yes. I added it, as he acts as reinforcements, but has no specific name. Retromaniac 16:46, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Other Possible Examples

A few more suggestions for Nondescript Nouns: In dullard, Homestar mentions "Popular Reality Show", and in other days he brags about his frag-count in "Online Gaming". Andyroid 01:31, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed that...Interesting thought. I'll put it up (with credit to you). —Einstein runner (thorax.pngfile_icon.gifmail_icon.gif) 22:09, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Good page, common joke needs a better title. May I throw out a few suggestions: "Nonspecific Nouns" would better cover the instances of common nouns being used as proper nouns, but the other "errors" (misused countable/uncountable nouns, lack of determiners/prepositions/etc...) aren't really covered there. Perhaps "Misused Common Nouns" or something like that. Just shooting for accuracy here.



What about songs with uber-generic titles? Like Secret Song and The Hold Music? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 00:37, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

The Hold Music is not a canon name. Secret Song, mebbe. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:55, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps, but what else would the title be? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 01:03, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
We don't know. "The Powers Of French Bread?" "After I Wash My Toes?" "With A Little Blob Of Mayo?" They're all possible, eh? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:13, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
That's a little non-sequitur-ish, even for Homestar. I mean, how many H*R songs with known titles don't actually have the title or a derivative thereof in the lyrics? Only one I can think of offhand is rock opera. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 01:17, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Nonetheless, it's speculation. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:20, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
