Is there a rule that states, "Any slash pairing, no matter how improbable, will eventually be written?" It's basically a combination of rules 50 and 34, but it feels like it should be a rule of its own. I just stumbled across a Ramses/Moses slash club, so....... yeah.

Rule 591: based on XCKD 591. All trolling eventually creates a big "ironic" fandom or hatedom.

Should we reassign Rule 43 since Movie 43 (at least, the version with the "banned movie" Framing Device) has its own Rule 43?

I doubt a single movie would be sufficient to rearrange the logic of the internet.

I thought Rule 1 was Everything Needs More Desu.

In Lost and Found, there is a query about (my words) "The longer a work is extant, the probability of such work using Time Travel as a plot device (whether as a main premise or as a Deus ex Machina) approaches 1."

That sounds to me like should be a Rule of the Internet. Is it?

Sounds like something from The Grand List of Forum and Community Laws. (A quick "Find" search tells me no, weirdly enough.)

How exactly do rules get added? Because I've seen a number of acclaims of the following rule but no signs of it being official:

Rule 413: If it exists, there'a a Homestuck AU for it.

I'm surprised that "If an animal character exists, there is a human version. No exceptions." isn't there.

It probably wasn't significant until Pokémon. Still, between that franchise and the Bronies, it should be codified.

EDIT: Conversely, the fact that these two franchises seem to be the vast majority of examples probably makes the "No Exceptions" clause untrue.

There should be a rule added:

No Rule is to be taken seriously

Before anyone freaks out about the removal of the link, it now redirects to an extremely NSFW picture, and a comment has been inserted reflecting that and a request not to put it back in. Trust me when I say you do not want to see the picture.
