The good folks at Cracked have given us a nice image for Browser Narcotic in a bit of harmless fun directed at This Very Wiki.

I see no reason not to oblige them:

*Bzzt!*
No fair, I was looking for an article where that picture would fit first! sad

Anyways... I say put it in.
"Darkness is light's light of darkness as a dark farewell to dark lightness."
I've been looking since I stumbled upon it last night. It was a short Wiki Walk away from Wiki Walk.

But I think this is about the best article we're going to come across for this picture.

I say go for it.

Also, for a caption idea:

"There's a reason we call this page The Scrappy."
In uffish thought
That's perfect.
Perfect? I don't get it.

Yeah, I don't get the caption either.

It's a picture of the page "The Scrappy". We're calling The Scrappy page, The Scrappy.

It's a pun.
What?

The trope The Scrappy is named after the Scooby-Doo character Scrappy, so that page image is not a pun, it's just a picture of the trope namer (which is not strong IMO, but admin fiat). I don't see how a picture of The Scrappy article on Browser Narcotic is related to any of that.

The image is saying in general that TVT makes you open lots of tabs. The screenshot is of The Scrappy as a way of saying that even some tropers hate that page, possibly because of its tabability.

As it is, I was actually saying "perfect" in relation to the image, not the proposed caption (I think my eyes glossed over it), but that caption is good.

Is The Scrappy more tabable than Noodle Incident?
Balance - the original sixth sense.
In uffish thought
I'd say it's less tabby, but in the image it has the meaning of "this is a page people hate because of tabs", which Noodle Incident doesn't.
I don't think any page would have that meaning.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

Thing is, that caption claims that people hate the page The Scrappy. I don't see it.
Balance - the original sixth sense.
Okay, that was just a suggestion. But if it really did that, people would hate it.

I'm not sure quite how to explain... :(

I feel like I should be getting it, but I'm not... sad

The point is, the idea of not being able to open multiple tabs on The Scrappy page would only reinforce the ennui around the concept of the Scrappy.

Anyway, I like the image. Cracked did a good one on us. grin

[up] Okay, that's what I was thinking, thanks for the confirmation. I'm good with it.

Maybe a caption of "Apparently they disabled tabbed browsing for your protection" ?

[up] Much better.

[up] Agreed.
Seems good to me.

Should I go ahead and insert it?
The image is great. Dislike caption suggestion though.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
I think this particular image needs a good caption to make it work.

I'm fine with "We've disabled this feature for your protection."
