Did you know...

... that some Wikipedia contributors consider a DYK about an actress murdered (allegedly by her brother) three weeks ago, who's body parts are still being recovered from a canal to be suitable main page material - next to a DYK on 'national masturbation day'?


I missed on DYK about body parts. It was removed, but DYK on 'national masturbation day' is still in archive of a main page: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...2#21_March_2012
QUOTE
... that National Masturbation Day (T-H-L-K-D), an annual event celebrated in the US in May, was first observed in 1995?
Maybe they should have called it an "anal" event tongue.gif ,but even with "annual" event it was viewed http://stats.grok.se/en/latest/National_Masturbation_Day 18,466 times.

As far as I can tell Fae was the first to pick up on-Wiki about the discovery of the body being juxtaposed with National Masturbation Day. Is he reforming?

Probably just interested in wanking whilst bodies lay around him.

It would not be incorrect if you switched the order to
1) Edit Wikipedia
2) Masturbate
3) ???
4) Become Wikimedia UK employee!

Isn't number 1 and number 2 basically the same action for most Wikipedians? They either get off seeing themselves type things, push crazy views, or whatever else. A mandatory pants wearing rule would definitely cut back on many of the problems.
