How do I do it?[edit | edit source]

Avoid this book, use this crappy article instead!

First, completely throw out your HTBFANJS, aka the Uncyclopedian Little Red Book let alone even read it, if you can. However, based around the plethora of content you have likely read, this is what ChatGPT thinks.

1) Choose an interesting topic: A good article always starts with an engaging topic. Choose something that you think has potential, or if you don't trust yourself, get someone else to decide. It should also have a lot of potential for droll and whimsical humor, or is just out of the ordinary.
2) Research your subject: Even though Uncyclopedia is meant to be a parody encyclopedia, it's still important to understand your subject matter. Researching your topic can help you come up with better crap, references and asides.
3) Get inspired: Reading random articles can inspire you to come up with new ways to be funny. But don't just copy their style or feel; find your own style and hands off mine.
4) Choose a humorous style: From satire to parody to sarcasm, there are many different styles of humor. Consider what style works best for your topic and write accordingly.
5) Use humor throughout: The funniest articles are the ones that are consistent in their humor. Whether it's the title, introduction or the final sentence, try to incorporate humor throughout your article.
6) Include images: A picture is worth a thousand words, and funny pictures have a 1.25x word buff. Use images to add extra humor to your article, but make sure the images are appropriate and not needlessly offensive.
7) Edit, edit, edit: Editing is essential to making your article the best it can be. Read your article multiple times and make sure it flows well, the humor is consistent and the writing is perfect as God intended. Don't automatically assume that somebody else will take the time and/or effort to clean up the mess you made. People would rather delete messes than clean them up, you know.
8) Submit your article: Once you're happy with your article, submit it to Uncyclopedia. If it's selected as a featured article, congratulations! You've created something hilarious that others will enjoy reading. If not: suck it up, dry your tears already, and try harder next time!
