Funding flows from Wales’s mouth

I’m sure he wishes it was that easy. It would be great if having his mouth open with a large spike sticking out was enough to fund Wikipedia. The site is an incredible and wonderful resource, so keeping it funded is a laudable goal.

Jimmy Wales regurgitates a fund raising status bar.

I also understand his motives for keeping advertisements off the site. But showing pictures suggesting that Jimmy Wales is regurgitating a funding status bar isn’t the best way to go about it. There are better ways to demonstrate that Wikipedia would be better without ads.

I suggest Mentos ads that feature people physically going through the not-so-physical page while inferring that the product made the trip both possible and necessary. Or the Squaremaster square shaped poster for exercise. That ought to make people send in money with notes to please make it stop.

I suppose it is about time I sent in some money with a note to please make Wales stop regurgitating at the top of Wikipedia pages. For the record, I get that picture with the regular width of my web browser on my home computer.
