Darth Wiki / Unlaconic Laconic Wiki

Go To

The Laconic Wiki is all well and good, but some of them are a bit too short. What they need is to be stuffed with filler and doused in flowery language, to the point where it all becomes a crufty mess.

(Imagine reducing a 1000x1000 pixel picture to 100x100, then expanding it to 1000x1000 again. That's the Unlaconic Laconic Wiki.)
