One of my old favorites is up for deletion right now, for the fourth
time, and looks likely to go the way of the dodo this time around.
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimus_Prime_%28person%29>. Just in time
for the release of the new Transformers movie, too.

It was heavily referenced, non-controversial, and a fun little piece of
trivia. I really don't understand why some editors feel the need to get
rid of such stuff. There are days that Wikipedia makes me depressed.
