    I immediately recognized the Navarro sign. Too bad the sticker isn’t bigger so it can be read from a moving car. You’re making Tempe a better place to live. [citation needed].

    @CERTRON that’s exactly what i thought, too! as soon as i saw it i went trawling through the xkcd archives for it… wish i’d looked at the comments here before waisting half an hour…

    The XKCD strip was the first thing I thought of as well. I thought about doing something similar to this, but I had a feeling I’d be ripping off XKCD, rather than referencing it.
    But well done with the stickers, love ‘em.

    #9, Arjunatwombly: it’s OK, I spent a few minutes trying to find the page before giving up on the search engine and hitting Random a few times and then going to Previous. Only after I located the strip (was it really time wasted?) did I think to check the comments on the original post.

    I’ve always thought that the classic poo-stall poetry that begins with “Here I sit, broken-hearted…” lacked for proper references. Ditto for the information about the man from Nantucket.

    …Bah, that [citation needed] tag is one of the most abused tags on any Wiki. I’ve seen articles practically vandalized beause some punk slapped those tags on every other sentence, especially for facts that are common knowledge and citing source is ridiculous!

    I would stick on of these on just about every page of the christian bible.

    I hope you all know where such obnoxious signage started. Robert Anton Wilson was one unique dude. kallisti.

    That guy is my hero.

    I’m going to start doing that soon!

    Of course, the first comment on that post is a link to http://xkcd.com/285/ which is the first thing I thought of when I saw this.

    The only answer? XKCD controls the universe.

    I much prefer my return-address label (Vista print is great) BULLSHIT stickers. Black CAPS on red background.

  12. franko says:

    wow, do i love this. i want some immediately!

  13. mrfitz says:

    yeah, but at what point does something not need to be cited any longer?

  14. Axx says:

    @MRFRITZ I think for bathroom graffiti 120 citations retires the need to cite further, for advertisments in the subway I think the figure is closer to 300.

    oh i’ve been waiting sooo long for someone to constructively take the total piss out of the [citation needed] stuff. i heart this man.
