Do we really need the second picture? It doesn't serve to inform the reader, if you ask me.

Looks a bit like someone's private joke! Bluewave 20:24, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Snooker?[edit]

The name of snooker apparently comes from a British army term for a new recruit. Does anyone know if this word is directly linked to 'rookie', and which came first?--MartinUK 13:29, 3 November 2007 (UTC). 'Snooker' is 1872, so earlier. Probably there were various unrelated names for recruits. Hakluyt bean (talk) 04:09, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

to the wiktionary?[edit]

This is in the list of most wanted stubs. Although the text is more complete than the entry in the Wiktionary, I don't think that this article will ever be more than a dictionary definition. I suggest a proposal for deletion, as there is already an entry in the Wiktionary. We can move some of the text into the Wiktionary definition if it's appropriate.
