I remember a special epiphany that I had a long time ago, back when I had a lot of time to blend. For days on end I had been pouring all my spare time into an animation, and on one such day I was sitting there trying to get a toy brontosaurus's eyes to pop out of his skull when he was hit by falling letters (I'm not making this up), when suddenly it dawned on me that the whole project was just plain silly, and I just had to laugh at myself for spending all my time so absurdly. If you've ever experienced a moment like this, or you like to have a good laugh at yourself otherwise, you just might get a kick out of the hilarious Blender article that was recently created on Uncyclopedia.org:
Uncyclopedia.org is of course a satire wiki, so I hope you get (or got) a good chuckle about what some people had to say about our favorite 3D app.
Something tells me, however, that we can do much, much better. I'd give that article two stars out of five. It simply needs more funny content. If you think you can improve upon it, you might consider these great subjects that I believe would make great material:
- Blender's GUI and learning curve (I shouldn't need to elaborate)
- Project Orange and Elephants Dream (a bunch of guys got together to smoke pot for a year in Amsterdam, and all they came up with is this? This movie doesn't have any elephants!)
- The NaN bankruptcy and the raising of money to revive Blender (already touched on in the article, but there's room for improvement)
- Suzanne (the Blenderhead's ideal mate)
I'm sure you can think of others. It might also be humorous to include certain April Fool's gags in the article as if they were real events. One note I feel is worth mentioning: Uncyclopedia has a certain reputation for being dirty, but it may be best if the Blender article were filled with clean humor, only because there are younger members of our community that may want to enjoy the article.
Let's show that when it comes to making jokes about Blender, nobody does it better than the Blender community.
