Frequently Asked, Yet Non-Historical, Questions

+ Is this thing for real?
Well, that depends on how you define real, doesn't it?

+ Who's Will Cuppy?
Will Cuppy (1884 - 1949) was an American humorist and journalist. His work is delicious, and deserves far more renown than it has. For our purposes, the most notable of his works is The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody, a humorous series of biographical sketches of assorted famous figures. We heartily endorse it.

+ Oo oo oo can I become a resident expert plz?
Perhaps, missy. Perhaps not. New members of the Will Cuppy Fellowship of Question Answerers will be added when and if we please. Don't call us – we'll call you.

If you are terribly eager to join our august ranks, the best way to do so is to be mature, clever, accurate and helpful in any discussions which might break out in the comments. Much like a Cubist painter, you have to paint many traditional pieces before anyone will take you seriously when you start drawing noses in the middle of mouths.

+ What the dickens! [insert opinion here] is complete balderdash! Take it down at once!
No. As our policies state: we are never wrong. Reality is merely mistaken.

+ I notice that you have not taken [such] or [thus] into account.
That's because MARXIST HISTORIANS do not concern us.

+ But I'm not satisfied.
Run along. Or post in the comments, because for land's sakes, that is what they exist for.
