A Cow. A Trampoline. Together, they fight crime.
I understand that it's technically correct (the best kind of correct), but I keep getting tripped up by the phrasing of "formerly professional" at the start of that paragraph.
I was never what most people would consider very professional.
But my favorite part is that the reason given for rejecting this suggests that if only there had been a footnote, they would have left it in. Which, knowing Wikipedia, is probably true.
Provide the right sources, from a respectable third party, and you can get anything in there.
Talk up the bouncing cow in your next three media appearances, and, bam. Problem solved.

Personally I'm more amused by the attention to detail in the "Principles" section. The wisdom of editorial consensus appears to be "Yeah, that guy, he did some things but holy shit lookit this hatey-hate for C++ and Java. Look at it!"
So of course after I posted this, someone re-added it but with a proper citation, and it remained there for a few weeks. Until: "that's cool and all, but i don't really think it's notable enough to be here".
What will the future bring??
