1. Is there a way to equalise the East/West table?

2. Since the page trope makes completely no sense, should it be removed? I thought the quote is supposed to be used as an example for the trope.

3. Does Eastern mean only Oriential dragons or includes non-Oriential (e.g. Persian) dragons? They have distinct differences. The Other Wiki categorises dragons into 'Europe', 'South and West Asia' and 'East Asia'.

4. "The longer the dragon, the more pairs of legs it has." I don't get it.

Anybody think the quote & stinger are funny? I feel the page would be better off without them.

It's... witty, more or less. TVT likes witty.

I don't think it's particularly funny, but it's definitely not hurting the page. Unless someone has a good quote that deserves the spot I don't see any reason to remove them.

The reason I asked is because I don't find them witty. That's one reason. The other reason is that they don't illustrate the trope. Our Dragons Are Different is about how there are many different ideas about how dragons look, behave, are etc. The only connection between the quote and the trope is that both contain "dragons".

The stinger tries very heavy-handedly to construct a connection between the quote and the trope. Doesn't work for me.

I have brought this up in the Page Quote Discussion Thread. Someone has suggested this:

"Gronkles, Zippleback, the Skrill... Boneknapper... Whispering Death... Burns its victims, buries its victims, chokes its victims, turns its victims inside-out... Extremely dangerous, extremely dangerous..."

How well does it match the trope?
