Something is rotten in the town of Bluffington

There's something distinctly off about the Wikia for Doug. For starters, I doubt the veracity of these 'extended universe' books. And, maybe I'm wrong, but I think the "theories" section on Mr. Dink is in desperate need of citation. The Hamburger Boy article is, frankly, a mess of half-cooked conjecture, the This Doug Live page is filled with spurious information... a whole page for Lardy the Fat Cell?... don't even get me started on the editorializing in the Chalky Studebaker article. The culprit appears to be Skeeter Valentines Day Massacre, the rapscallion. Other users have noticed this problem, and the effect it's having on the credibility of the Doug Wikia community. If you want to get your facts straight, you can check out some real info over at the Doug (previously) Wikipedia page.

I guess you could call that a quarter-FLOUNDER with cheese! If you're not laughing then you didn't get it.

FTR i got it, and I laughed at the water-based humor, I frankly don't know why these kinds of jokes don't fly on Letterman and such, but I'm glad there's is a place for it in the Doug Wiki Hamburger Boy article. Thansk you.

wikia is pretty much useless nowadays, no? i surprised sites aren't rampant with this stuff, tho I suppose someone has to care enough to do it.

You are a wonderful person for doing this.

For those of you who don't visit the "previously" link, there's a comment in it linking to Doug Funnie is Crazy, which is just absolutely fantastic. It's a very particular sort of humor, and it doesn't always work, but when it does, it is brilliant.

I read "Doug Live" with the same intonation as "They Live" and now have an idea for the greatst Doug fanfic of all time.

Doug Funnie is Crazy - [A tumblr blog] devoted to exposing the truth behind the Nickelodeon show. It's a tragedy, more than a comedy.

The page of extended universe books is motherfucking brilliant. I laughed inappropriately loud at this:

Character Deaths: Porkchop

Status: Canon

Heh.

The nature of the Hamburger Boy is shrouded in mystery. Some say the creature is a completely undocumented species, an alternate branch of evolution that man may have taken from apes, with others believing it to be a celestial being sent from the heavens to deliver mankind from sin. Skeptics however say that the Hamburger Boy may just be some pedophile in a hamburger suit, or a badger.

Someone get this Skeeter Valentines Day Massacre guy a writing gig with the networks. This kid is going places.
