Hmm...this article seems too minor. It has a very short appearance in one and only one toon, so why should we keep it? -Brightstar Shiner 20:41, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Brightstar, you of all people should know that we have wheel-barrows full of these articles. If we delete this one, we would have to delete them all (which I would have no problem with, but you know how it is). — Lapper (talk) 21:28, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

It's about as relevant as Stalker Spray, The Cheat's Soldering Iron, etc. I'm biased, seeing as I created it, but I say keep. Dr. Clash 21:38, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

I think if someone had no problem with deleting all these minor articles this wiki would not be a complete knowlege base. As a matter of fact, a wiki needs basically every article as possible. Definately no delete. TheYellowDart(t/c) 21:41, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
If this was a democracy, I'd vote to delete the article.--Mycroft Holmes 22:38, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
Meanwhile, I suggest we keep it. Items that appear only once are still often worth an article; it's the running gags that need more appearances to be worthwhile. Heimstern Läufer 22:42, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
This article is no more than a Real World Reference moved to an article. IMHO, it does NOT deserve a separate article after just a single appearance.--Mycroft Holmes 22:44, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
Keep based on precedent as stated above. Mycroft, are you suggesting we wholesale clean house of any item or character article where the subject has one or two appearances? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:46, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
In the best of all possible worlds, I'd say that each article refering to a very very minor item or character be re-examined. I understand that is not a realistic goal. Not every word and item needs a separate article. Sometimes a RWR is more than sufficient. --Mycroft Holmes 23:17, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Oh, um...okay. We can keep it, I guess. Articles linked to from Items and such tend to be short and sweet like this one anyway. I was off the wiki for a while, came back, saw all these people arguing here and thought, "Did I provoke this?" But really, short articles are okay once in a while and I do know that, since about 65% of what I do around here is argue in stub talk pages about deletion. While we're here, is there anything else we can add to this page to make it a little less "lacking"? -Brightstar Shiner 23:11, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

It looks like on the longer side to me compared to a lot of other articles, including ones I've made myself. :-) TheYellowDart(t/c) 23:13, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

More bias, but I'd say it's fine. It's got more than Stalker Spray, anyway, and everyone thinks that's fine. Dr. Clash 23:43, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
