...two syllables, isn't it?--Old Dickens 15:21, 31 May 2007 (CEST)

Do we really need this article? If there was more than one character speaking like this but... --Death 15:24, 31 May 2007 (CEST)

Nearly eight years on.... there is another character who speaks like this and she's also in The Truth. But blink and you miss her... AgProv (talk) 19:01, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Of course not, but it's getting to be a long list. I can't figure out if it matters how many small or semi-relevant articles there are, except to Sanity's hard-drive space, and I doubt if the whole Wiki is dangerously large yet. Maybe there should be a trivia category?--Old Dickens 15:33, 31 May 2007 (CEST)
Ten years on, I'm tempted to change it to "word", but it may have passed the statute of limitations and acquired historical immunity. Perhaps the audible effect of "_" isn't really a syllable? --Old Dickens (talk) 03:33, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

The part about Mr Tulip is wrong. When he says it, it's not a swear word. It's his speech impediment that makes him say "-ing". People around him misunderstand and think he's swearing; that's the joke. (unsigned comment by SanityClaus 6 Jul 2019.)
