[edit] Needed?

Is this page even needed? Delete!--Record307

If an article like Cat Mess, with two appearances to date is legit enough to stay, then I certainly think this one should as well. It's a well documented running gag. —Guard Duck talk 06:30, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, but that's one is technically a product. This running gag only appeared in 3 toons.---Record307
Which is the minimum requirement for a running gag article. BBG 00:32, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Except, I don't see anything connecting these instances. In one it's about ducks, mentioned. In another, it's about kids and grandmas eating yogurt, mentioned. And in a third, it's the king of town eating giblet gravy, seen. I see no connection. — Defender1031*Talk 04:23, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
I must admit, when I found "tube feeding was previously mentioned in No Hands on Deck!" in looking old#Inside References, I also failed to find the connection. I think I wrote this page at a period where I was really desperate to find an article subject, so I would not strongly oppose to a deletion if the consensus results as such.

It is true that the "tube feeding" mentioned in looking old wasn't referring to eating through a tube but rather eating something in a tube, like a Gogurt. However, the second instance, when Strong Sad mentions it about his great-grandma, he's referring to eating through a tube, so the connection is valid. —Guard Duck talk 04:54, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Also, The tubes themselves are not the same kind. Except for the obvious yogurt tube, the duck-feeding tube is a hose people put way inside the ducks' throats and force feed them. The one the KoT is using looks like a Inhalation machine used to transfer the food just to his mouth so he can eat it. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 05:24, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

DELETE(D)!!--Mariofan1000 21:08, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm kinda on the fence about this one. I agree that there's nothing connecting the three instances. But the fact that an obscure phenomenon like feeding through a tube has independently occurred three times in the body of work... is that interesting enough to be documented? I can kinda see an argument for "yes." Note also: The relevant part in looking old isn't the gogurt thing. It's the part at the end where strong sad says "Great Grandma eats everything through a tube." (I wanna edit the page to reflect that, but I can't find a good wording) - 21:19, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm... You're right about the yogurt ref. And thinking over my own post, we don't know how much down the KoT's tube go. So I think we may bew on something here. Why not? Let this article stay. But the looking old reference need to be reworded to reflect that. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:07, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Page Move

This page just got moved from Feeding Through A Tube to Feeding Through a Tube, but the article starts out with the words Tube feeding instead of matching the title. Shouldn't we move this to Tube Feeding, since that is apparently correct terminology? I ask before moving in case there's something I don't know. OptimisticFool 14:26, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Tube feeding indeed does sound more professional. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 16:53, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
Two for, none against. If/when I happen across this again, if there's no opposition, I'm moving it. Fair warning. =] OptimisticFool 13:55, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
