This is not especially notable. It's a painting that has appeared once. As a one-off joke, I don't think it deserves a page of its own. Delete. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 04:10, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

I don't think it'd even be a very good redirect to Hanging Objects. --DorianGray 04:11, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
I agree. Delete Loafing 04:14, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm now confused. How is Wetski notable and Velvet Painting not? Especially since Strong Bad directly refers to the painting in the toon. wbwolf (t | ed) 04:34, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
Well, we have Hanging Objects where we note all these items. This article essentially duplicates that. Now, if it were seen often and used as, say, a running gag, then it might merit an article of its own rather than an entry on the page of hanging objects. On the other hand, the Wet-Ski isn't really notable on a catch-all page, but it deserves noting, so it has an article. If there were a lot of closely-related items like the Wet-Ski which all had one or two appearances each, then I'd support deleting the Wet-Ski article in favor of including it on a new page detailing all those items. Does that make sense? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 14:56, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
He does refer to it. And it does play and important role. It's not like it was just a background item. Keep. Though, I had a feeling that this was going to be questionable.
It's not in doubt that it's referred to, or that it plays an important role. It's a picture listed on Hanging Objects, and the article essentially 1) describes the painting and 2) makes a supposition about the scene depicted. None of that is really necessary, as we can see the picture just fine and already know all that. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:01, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
Something someone might not notice is the "Lem" at the bottom. And if they did, they might not be familiar with who that is. Super!SantanaDuper!
If one did not know what the "Lem" signifies, one would read the Inside References for portrait, where the painting came from, and quickly learn that "the velvet painting of Strong Bad holding the skunk was done by Lem Sportsinterviews." Additionally, I have a good feeling the Wet-Ski will make a second appearance somewhere in the future, as often happens on the website, whereas this painting will not. Delete. (Also, I always thought Strong Bad was crying over the dead skunk, after it died from exhaustion from the chase. A bit like the ending of that Bugs Bunny cartoon, What's Opera, Doc?.) – The Chort 17:23, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
I think we should just delete. The proper information can be added to Hanging Objects, but at the moment, everything on this page is already explained on portrait. Bluebry 17:29, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
That explaination helps a lot to help me understand. I agree, then, this page should be deleted. wbwolf (t | ed) 01:15, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
Nice job you guys. That all makes alot of sense. Delete. Super!SantanaDuper!

I'd say DELETED! Slipknot6477 02:33, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
