December 24[edit]

Where do Wikipedians go to ask dumb, or at least silly, questions?[edit]

Okay, I get it. This page is for serious questions.

I appreciate and respect that
—or at least try too.

But where can I ask my silly questions, the entertaining or joke questions—or attempts thereof:
like the one’s I’d ask in Yahoo! Answers (I know, such were generally TOS violations there, but I’m trying to change)
—before I went to Answerbag?

Where a question like:
"YYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAaaa… Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss?"
can a great answer from a great Belgian Trotskyite I meet there.

or I can go to a Persian site and ask questions like: "Why aren’t there topless anarchists parading in Tehran yet?"
or the versions in YA here, here, and here.

What I’m looking for is a site where:
(1) like Wikipedia, all I need to register is an email address (not even that for Wikipedia), username, and password;
(2) like Wikipedia, multiple accounts are permitted;
(3) I can ask risque questions and the like;
(4) there’s a decent amount of traffic;
and the hardest,
(5) like Wikipedia, the members are generally cool.

Here's more or less the same question asked on Fluther.
Thanks for any and all help.

Conservapedia is known for their sense of humor. Give them a try and report back on how it worked out. :) ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 21:10, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
I like to be welcome, or at least not unwelcome--like the RationalWiki Saloon Bar.Civic Cat (talk) 21:22, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
As a square I resent the implication that I might be 'cool', I don't deliberately ask stupid questions, and I didn't know the two were related. Dmcq (talk) 23:11, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
A couple of decades ago, there was a book (in a gray cover, naturally) called Dare to Be Dull, describing many ways to be purposely un-hip, such as driving a station wagon instead of a sports car. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 17:01, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
