Your challenge: find a Wikipedia entry describing a cartoon character, the hilarity of which is immeasurably improved by replacing all instances of that character's name with the text "Marc D. Rowland".
Examples after the jump.
Additionally, I declare Dye! the winner of the previous battle of wits, mostly because his entry is the only one that still loads with any swiftness. Dye! wins a pun of his choosing.
Did anyone else ever wonder what happened to Chrisdye's long-time friend and professorial colleague who blogged occasionally at demaisonneuve.com? Well, I was at Edinburgh airport yesterday and happened upon him sitting near the parking lot; luckily I had my camera phone handy and snapped up the scene:

(This really wasn't staged; I actually stepped out of the car at the airport and witnessed this, with not a person in sight to explain why there might be fruit sitting on a bench.)
(I reluctantly declare Ken the winner of the previous Battle of Wits, even though his entry was clearly a reggae reference rather than a funk reference. However, his was the only entry and, in any case, he's from Alberta -- so I don't think we can hold his lack of knowledge of black culture against him.)
"A weblog about comedy, technology, Canada and funk!"
But when was the last time we actually discussed funk? In order to comply with advertising standards, please address a normal Sillytech topic or member in a way that incorporates the concept of funk.
Entries may be based on wordplay (eg. "How many seats will the Liberals win in Parliament?"; eg. "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag of Dicks"), Photoshopping (see example below), or any other medium that you see fit.
I declare Budman and Gil joint winners of the previous Battle of Wits. They each win a circumcision for religious reasons.
To some lay persons, "infinite monkeys" and "infinitely many monkeys" may be synonymous; to mathematicians, the former is incorrect because each monkey individually is finite.
