Capitalist Superiority Day
0 Google hits for "Capitalist Superiority Day." Founded in Athens, GA in 2001 and I'm willing to bet that I can count the number of people outside that town who celebrate it on no hands. LizardWizard 08:07, Feb 9, 2005 (UTC)
KEEPI must respectfully disagree. Transplants from Athens, Georgia have begun to spread this holiday all throughout the nation. Last November it was celebrated not only all throughout the state of Georgia, but also in pockets of California (most notably in the Sacramento region), Virginia Beach, Las Vegas, and possibly even so far north as Boston. It can not be forgotten that very few holidays began nationwide. Valentine's Day started out as a small little holiday observed only in a town in West Virginia. Thanksgiving was once nothing but a meal eaten by some pilgrims. Christmas started in a little village in the mideast. It is quite foolish and stereotypically old-fashioned to stand in the way of something just because it's not big yet. Hell, if everybody did that, we'd still be living in caves. And yes, I am the creator of this article. - Lewis Ranja And, furthermore, how is this any less important than friggin' Ashlee Simpson???
Boy, did you pick the wrong counter-example. --Calton 10:47, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete unless some evidence can be cited. Probably fictional, doesn't appear encyclopedic even if it's not. —Stormie 08:42, Feb 9, 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Not notable. If it ever becomes notable, we can create the article again later, just like band vanity pages. Besides, I thought if there was any "Capitalist Superiority Day" in November it would be the day after Thanksgiving. Dave6 08:49, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Patent nonsense. (Oops, forgot to sign Calton 02:11, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC))
Delete very obvious joke if one reads far enough down. Andrew Lenahan - Starblind 15:40, Feb 9, 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Joke/hoax/nonsense. --BM 15:42, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete for reasons given above by others. -- Curps 18:07, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete, rantish joke. Wyss 19:18, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete. No evidence presented that it is celebrated to any significant extent. The alleged theme song, "Money, money. it is good Money, money" returns no hits on Googling for exact phrase. Article reads like a transparent joke or hoax. As for the comment above that "It is quite foolish and stereotypically old-fashioned to stand in the way of something just because it's not big yet," Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not an incubator for holidays or neologisms or garage bands or memes on the rise. When Capitalist Superiority Day becomes big, we will welcome an article on it, not before. Let Wikinfo or Anarchopedia or Jnanabase get the scoop; we have no interest in being first.
