Truth in Advertising[edit]

Either advertise WVBD as the Bomis Boyz™ Bondage and Discipline Fetish Site that it has become for the past two years, or reconstruct it as an authentic Democratic Learning Community. —Gastrin Bombesin 12:06, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Every Sunday, mourning, over WVBD

B&D a fargenigen.
B&D men ken a bootkick krigen.
A snoot, a Kort, a gabby dean.
Brengt areyn dayn klenem zing.

Discussion[edit]

What would be the next step forward? --JWSchmidt 15:05, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Is the above song parody an example of ridiculous vandalism, or is it a constructive contribution to User:Beetlebaum's Music and Learning Project? Note that the song parody was originally written by Red Buttons and performed by Barton Brothers. It's from a parody of the most famous Yiddish radio jingle of all time. The radio station (WEVD) was owned and operated by Forward Communications. —Kadima Research Services 15:41, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Can someone please link to the Wikiversity community discussion of the ban?
