I don't know if Why Come Only One Girl? really counts, considering there's not really a verb at all in the question. But if others disagree, I don't really care — just throwing in my opinion. So makey outy 04:11, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

It was removed hours ago. Why come bring it up now? --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 04:45, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
Oh. Um...because I was stupid and didn't check next difference and/or patrolled recent changes? Sorry, I made an assumption. We can pretend this never happened now. So makey outy 04:54, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
Pretend what never happened? ;) You were right, though; without a verb, it wasn't a non-inverted question; the precise reason it was deleted. --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 04:55, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

I don't know how technical we really want to get in these, but this is more accurately described as a fronting of the wh-word without alteration of the first matrix auxilliary verb.
