Nuvola apps important.svg My entry was not a hoax. I apologize for the fact it comes across that way, but it is totally serious.AllenFerguson- 13:07, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Well perhaps the way to look at this is that if you want to add material to articles with a medical focus using the website of a comedian as a source is probably not the way to go. The material was funny by the way - didn't you appreciate the humour too? Are you Dan Allen by the way? I saw that you uploaded a picture of him.Saganaki- 07:49, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
