Added on St. Patrick's Day:
In March 2008, I attended the memorial service of my uncle, Pat Wombacher. His son Dave made the following statement:
- "When people ask me if I'm Irish, I say, 'Well, my dad drinks beer, and my grandmother's name was Murphy, so I guess that makes me Irish." I get to say the same thing, but that my mother's name was Kelly.
"I actually prefer when she watches the Steve episodes." - Donovan Patton, 2nd host of Blue's Clues, speaking of his two-year old daughter. Personal note: My kids, who watch Blue's Clues daily, actually prefer the Joe episodes.
"Sin makes you stupid." - Dale Alquist
"All life has inestimable value, even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect." - Pope Francis, 2013
"I'm really part of the first generation of people who grew up on Sesame Street. The work of Sesame Street, in its own way, is similar to my work in the sense that [it's] fundamentally about universal access to preschool education and my work is about universal access to knowledge. We both play a role in what I think has become much bigger than the time when Sesame Street started: the world of informal learning". - Jimmy Wales
In the final words of his autobiography, Steve Martin says the following about the internet. He might as well be speaking of Wikipedia: "... I have learned that people are uploading their lives into cyberspace and am convinced that one day all human knowledge and memory will exist on a suitable hard drive which, for preservation, will be flung out of the solar system to orbit a galaxy far, far away."
- I thought I had seen it all, until here. The edit summary is priceless: "Need reliable source".
- The first instance of Greg Page suffering from "Steve Burns vandalism". Also, see here. It's even affected another Yellow Wiggle, Emma Watkins. See here.
- Vandalism, Lazy Town style. ("You are a pirate!") With thanks to Thingg, who originally caught it, although I was the one who pointed out the source.
- Australian juvenile "humor".
-  Explains why he lost to Jesse Ventura.
- Gangsta Wiggles. Anthony Field has the tattoos for it, that's for sure. I think it better belongs on The Wiggles' Uncyclopedia page.
- Note to self: Never ever piss off SandyGeorgia.
- My answer to a ridiculous question.
- Maya Angelou parodies.
- This  would've never happened if they just asked me.
