Nose Cola Warnings Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator        IP Information Go to the top of this page

I've been working on an episode rewrite when my mind went off on a different tangent. It occurred to me that, when a fic has a nose cola warning, there's usually no way to tell how strong the warning is -- it could be something that causes a slight chuckle or something like my legendary stuff. (I'm sure many of you can come up with at least 5 examples off the top of your heads without thinking.)

The thought that came to my mind was have a nose cola ranking, something like what is used for hurricanes or tornadoes. Any thoughts?

But how do you decide what the level is? Part of it is what each person finds amusing. There are times when I find something funny but no one else around me does.

I think nose cola is probably a rank in and of itself - I mean, it warns you that you might sneeze cola out of your nose, and for a reader to do that, it needs to be pretty funny.

Humour is subjective. If a story has a 'humor' tag (since most archives and websites use the oxymoron "American English") then it's up to the reader whether they take the risk.

Caveat lectorum

EW I would think nose cola is definitely above a slight chuckle. Having read your previous work, I’d bump the warning with a big flashing sign with GGO’s “read at your own risk!” Or ROR for short — a step up from LOL Smile

Or we could create a thread called "The Nose Cola Room," (along the lines of the Rubber Room) where people could post fics which carry the nose cola risk. Naturally, the nose cola rating would be up to the author.

If you wanted to have Nose Cola rankings, might I suggest:

1: 1-3 tissues (a mild snerk with minimal cleanup);

2: Kitchen towels (nose cola occasioning a spray); and

3: "Oh, shit, my keyboard!" (desktop version) OR "I'm so sorry, sir or ma'am. Here, take my handkerchief." (For those using mobile devices, particularly on public transport.)
