Clean up plot[edit]

Who wrote this crap for the plot? 71.82.60.179 00:59, 3 December 2007 (UTC) The plot is a bit stupid - 211.30.230.28 08:58, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. Not only is it not funny, it doesn't follow the book at all. The book has a plot that could easily be made funny but the author does not take advantage of it and instead uses a bunch of Animal Farm junk. I might work on this myself. -DeathBySnowman (talk)

Newspeak[edit]

If you have to write in Newspeak, at least make it comprehensible. You can't just slam togehter random Newspeak words hand rail banana before mousepad tomorrow opposite hello.

Suggested Re-writes[edit]

I'm happy to do either of these, but seeing as both would require a total re-write of the article, I'd like to ensure that atleast a few other people are behind me.

1) Write article (or translation thereof) in Newspeak. 2) Using wikipedia article as the basis, re-write the article substituting in current US-political words in.

Agreed. This is supposed to be funny, not idiocy. 66.91.122.30 01:06, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Pee Review[edit]

Humour: 9 Nicely done. Here's my point by point criticism of each section:
  • Intro-Good with a hairline fracture: I would take out the second sentence "It was originally written..." as this is exceedingly random and stupid. Other than that: doubleplusgood.
  • Plot-Well written synopsis that beautifully blurs the line between reality and BS as well as expertly fusing together something realistic with something that's... well... not. The conclusion is well (re)written: the obvious falsities help portray many of the rewrites as true (and this didn't even have to go through the Ministry of Truth!). BTW, apt placement for the spoiler alert.
  • Comparison-Realistic Table-I might be compelled to add minipeace as flamewars or revertwars or something to that effect.
  • 1984 in Modern Culture-I don't get the quote but perhaps I'm just an idiot (it isn't that I'm too lazy to look things up).
-BB is watching-see images
-References in modern music-I don't think that they're doubleplusgood, but they're not ungood. It is a question of taste and I ask for ketchup in Paris restaurants.
Concept: 10 Well done rewriting concept of book.
Prose and formatting: 9.198 I found a couple of minor instances of gramatical errors but only because I'm a Grammar Nazi. I don't see any other issues.
Images: 6.5 Appropriate logo reskin and opening picture. Others are great, but I am not a fan of the last four: they're neither ungood, nor good.

Symbol delete vote.svg Little Brother I feel a better "Little Brother" picture could and should be found. However I would also find it perfectly acceptable to give me the finger and be told "Nobody Cares."
Symbol keep vote.svg Bigfoot Has a creepy pedo-smile= certainly should stay.

Miscellaneous: 8.7 Average of scores. Whoop-de-do
Final Score: 43.398 That was a very good article. Thank you for the read good sir- you deserve a gold star and maybe some ice cream.
