Manics on Uncyclopedia

Uncyclopedia is a great spoof of Wikipedia. Sometimes it's hillarious, but other times it's just lazy and badly written. This was the case with the Manics article on there - it was just shit and written as though a 10 year old had done it. It kept switching between first person and third person narrative, which stops it looking like it's supposed to be serious - which is what would make it funny! I've gone over and started the article from scratch (anyone can edit it) but I've run out of ideas. If anyone else feels up to the challenge, I've made a start so hopefully that will help:

http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/M...reet_Preachers


I've included stuff from our Made Up Manics Facts thread, but what I've written so far is okay but not hillarious really. I'm much happier with the article me and my brother wrote for Queen (the band). Had to remove something from it recenly because someone added loads of paedophile jokes to it, but it's back in good form now. Check that out if you have chance

Nice one Richey, the old one was pretty poor, I don't think it was written by anyone with a particular interest or anything. The Nicky Wire one was quite good.

I enjoyed the 'Golden Age of Soul' tracklisting. 'La Tristesse Crossdresser' and 'Rosie's in the Hospital' were very good.

Eh to be honest I preferred the old picture on the article, I love the new additions and revisions to the page but yeah, the old picture I feel works better despite the fact the old version of the page was pretty shit.

Anyways I'll try giving some of the albums on there a go and see what song titles I can come up with.

EDIT: Well I gave EMG a try. Let me know what you guys think.

Btw, is the renaming of Richey to Christmas part of one long comedic arc culminating in a section documenting the seedy masturbatory habits of Jones, as alluded to in their Christmas song, with its chorus, "The ghost of Christmas has come"? 'Cos that would be neat.

Good contributions, I will have to update with the continuation of the story I guess! I am going to change EMG though mate, as the story for that part has influence on the track titles (in other words they are part of the joke).

Okay. Updated EMG - see what you think. Too graphic?
