"This explanation may be incomplete or incorrect: Created by an AUTOMATON." That's funny. 01:23, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, there's one on a lot of them and nobody's ever bothered removing them. bubblegum-talk|contribs 01:39, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
"Do NOT kill this warning before it is ready to die" is especially good. Captain Video (talk) 05:38, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
Do not mistake Synonym for Verbaciousness. A single technically correct but contextually dubious word (I suppose the original BOT->AUTOMATON counts) is what it should be. Merely verbosifying an antilaconic and/or polysyllaballic interwoven sentencial restructurisation is very much akin to being ballistically off-target vis-a-vis the inherent humour theme. (i.e. missing the joke.) 10:12, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

I feel like this is not Megan, but a new character, differentiated by her wearing a dress (which also makes her seem almost strange compared to the others). 06:17, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Come on, can't a gal wear a dress without turning into a completely new person? I think she looks cute in that outfit! 07:23, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Is grub meant to disgust, or is she merely British and using a perfectly normal word for food in use since 1691.The captcha asked me to click on crosswalks, but all I could seee were Zebra crossings. 07:58, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Why would it disgust? Grub is just grub, nosh, scran, nosebag. Stuff you eat. Real food, not posh stuff. And definitely not the sort of muck you'd have to eat on a reality TV show where they take you into a jungle and try to freak you out. 10:54, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
I cannot begin to explain the cascade of confusion and misunderstanding created by having first read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in a UK edition rather than a US edition where the words, "zebra crossing," are replaced by, "crosswalk." Being quite young I thought the idea of zebra crossings must be analogous to deer crossings that exist all over US roads but, perhaps, was a reference to human evolution in Africa and, given Adams's quite loose restrictions on temporal effects, that the 'cleverness' of the human species had echoed back in time and destroyed itself before the cleverness ever took place. In theory, if not in practice. Only because the proof of the non-existence of God due to the existence of the Babelfish wasn't universally accepted was the human species saved. Funny how a colorful expression changes things, in'it? 13:03, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

We also have other species pelican, puffin, toucan (pedestrian and cycle) and pegasus crossings, the last for those riding horses. Panda crossings are extinct. 22:42, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

As a member of the Facebook Group "Dr. Anna vs. Danger," I can guarantee that many MANY people would find this woman's approach to language very hot indeed. Cellocgw (talk) 13:09, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Isn't Megan just overly using British English expressions, which is misinterpreted as being weird on purpose? 15:02, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Maybe, given the dress, but I'll bet you $50 she isn't. bubblegum-talk|contribs 03:07, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Clearly, Randall has been watching the most recent episode of Star Trek - Lower Decks (released this Thursday). "Moist" is the word most commonly observed to be found unpleasant, & he just used two synonyms for it in a joke about unsettling phrasings, entitled Synonyms. Moist was right in the title of the most recent episode. ProphetZarquon (talk) 20:02, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

I think I am in love. 08:27, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Is this a crossover episode with Strange Planet? 19:14, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
