I can't help but look at Somewhere, a Paleontologist Is Crying and all of the other 'Somewhere an X is crying' tropes and think that, the way they are named and described, they look like a last redoubt of 'You Fail X Forever', which we agreed to rename and rework into 'Artistic License - X'.
Am I the only one who feels like this, or do people agree with me? In such a case, we probably should get to reworking all these to be more concordant with Artistic License than with You Fail X Forever.

The "is crying" snowclones were included in the "you failX..." clean-up and move because the name invites judgmental writing about how bad and blatant the errors are. Both the "is crying" cluster and the "You fail X" cluster were to be moved to "Artistic License"

Either or is fine with me. As long as no one is crying somewhere. Least of all Palaentologist... I'm not even gonna pretend I spelled that right. And I'm too lazy to right click it and spell it right. -__-
Fair enough. Just as long as it doesn't have "dinosaur" in the title.

Alternative Titles: Somewhere A Palaeontologist Is Crying

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
