Does anyone know what happened to the recap page?

It was cut, I think, for not being in line with how recap pages are usually used.

re: The entry under Even Evil Has Standards:

I don't think Dr. Lecter objected to Jack's line about the 7/7 bombers so much as he thought it was "ham-fisted", i.e. tacked on with a rivet gun and duct tape. And to be honest, that's how the line felt. (Not that Dr. Lecter's last line was any better; both guys ended kinda weak.)

I know the Youtube comments are kinda the place for this, but for those of us who won't or can't have a Youtube account for whatever reason, any recommendations that those who have accounts can pass along?

Catherine the Great vs Queen Vickey? Freud vs Dr Phil? Who's next, you decide!

I'm gonna try this again ( because I don't learn) but I can't be the only one that wants to see Lin Manuel Miranda of Hamilton fame get is on this. Personal preference being to see him as Hamilton face off against some other historical figure with a musical, like Annie Oakley or Charlie Chaplin or something in that line.

Should we add a quote page with the lyrics from each song?

Is it just me, or does the list of Stealth Puns contain a lot of puns that aren't very stealthy? Some of them are, but a lot of them are painfully obvious puns (for example " ten-thousand-dollar shoes I use to stomp out a beatle." is not trying to hide that they're playing off the word Beatle) and others aren't even puns, just play on words ("You're the least talented rat in your whole pack of rodents!" is referencing the rat pack, but there's no actual pun) and some aren't even that ("Dissing these dynamic douchebags" is just word replacement) I think it needs to be seriously cleaned up.

I did, some time ago, remove quite a number of Stealth Puns that weren't very stealthy at all (I remember "naan-violence" was one of them), but there could still be more that aren't "stealth" enough.

A couple of times now, I've come close to adding a listing for Edison vs. Tesla under Odd Battle Out (potholed to Odd Name Out), on the basis that it's the only rap battle to date with no swearing. I thought I should run it up here first, this time, and see if another troper might be able to think of a better/more fitting trope, or if it's just an observation with no place on the page and should be allowed to die quietly. Thoughts?

Adolf Hitler, buttomonkey. Fair enough, but also "Acceptable target?"

I'd change it but I don't know how too.

Nah, lets leave it out unless future episodes find it acceptable to make fun of him.

Meant to put this on here: Does anyone think that the Awesome and Funny pages should be organized to put the entries in order? The whole thing is just cluttered and scattered.
02:24:26 PM May 31st 2012
In terms of the order of videos? Sure, go for it. (I'd do it myself, but I'm busy at the moment with something else.)

There are a lot of inconsistencies with HAL's status as a spoiler. What should we do? I don't want to ruin the surprise, personally.
