I removed the piped link from "madge" to cunt. There is no mention in the target article that explains to a casual reader why the link sends them there. There is nothing in this article that explains the link. I realize that there was an invisible "edit mode" note that referred people to the talk page of the Hambledon, Hampshire, but how many casual readers would hit the edit link and see the note? If "madge" must be explained (and I can see why an explanation might be necessary), it should either be in the main article, or at the Madge disambig page if "madge" is wikilinked again.

This is much better after BlackJack's latest edit, thank you Jack. But I still wonder if there's a reference we can cite to justify the claim. I was hoping that we could just cite the OED, but I checked and was surprised to find that this meaning of "madge" doesn't occur in there — apparently a madge is either a magpie, or a barn owl, or a kind of lead hammer wrapped in cloth.

If it doesn't appear in the OED that's reason to suspect that the meaning may well be false. This statement therefore needs robust sourcing. 86.136.94.95 16:39, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
I agree. I've labelled it "citation needed". Stephen Turner (Talk) 17:14, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
I should have noted earlier than this that the needed citation has been supplied. JH (talk page) 20:04, 26 April 2007 (UTC)
