Tina Fey Scar Detective No Longer Listed at Wikipedia...

See that hole atop the Wikipedia logo? That is where Tina Fey Scar Detective used to be.

Soon after launching this important look at one of society's great mysteries, I was kind enough to stop by Wikipedia and add a link so that others could come and learn about the Tina Fey scar.

A few people found the Detective via this link, but I recently noticed that the once consistent trickle of Wikipedians had ceased. Intrigued, I went back to the Tina Fey page and, to my horror, found this site was no longer listed.

It may have been an oversensitive Tina Fey fan. It may have been Tina herself. It may have been something more...

If Angelina Jolie has a bag of fries and her stomach poofs out a bit while she is out running around town, someone will snap the photo and demand an answer. Is she pregnant? Is she overeating? Did she enjoy the fries? Who made the fries? Is that a vial of the fry guy's blood around her neck? People will demand answers! And, they generally get answers.

Now, on the other hand, if you are a television star and much-heralded member of the entertainment industry and have a pretty noticeable scar down your face you would think that would probably get as much play as some fries from McD's. However, when it comes to Tina's scar, there is a different outlook. Ask "how did she get that?" and you hear dead silence, occasionally punctuated with a cry of "none of your business."

Is it a conspiracy? I don't know. Yet. I am wondering. One of Tina's online fan clubs makes it a Rule Violation to discuss the scar. Despite Gawker's best efforts to produce a good scar tip, they seem to have come up empty handed. A simple link to the Tina Fey Scar Detective is surreptitiously removed from the Wikipedia. It's all a bit strange to me.

I can find pictures of virtually any female celebrity pulling her swimsuit out of her crack while walking down a beach during an otherwise private moment within thirty seconds. I can find out the names and credits of every person Jennifer Aniston has ever bedded. But the scar? Nope.

Tina Fey Fan Group Bans Scar Discussion

Interestingly, a livejournal community of Tina Fey fans has only two rules for membership.

First rule: Don't talk about Fight Club.

Just kidding. The first rule is that you have to dig Tina Fey or those who do. Sounds reasonable.

Here is the Second rule:

"Have fun, use humor and be respectful within reason. And by respectful, I mean, make your posts legible (as possible) . . . Don't spell "your" as "ur . . . and don't ask about something we know Tina doesn't like discussing (like her childhood scar or if she's bopped Jimmy Fallon). If you happen to stalk Jimmy Fallon as well, it's okay to gush about how adorable they are together (in their brotherly-sisterly kinda way). But no {EDITED} fanfic! PG13 fanfic only."

Okay, that is really a few rules all lumped together, but anyway... The fans of Tina Fey refuse to discuss the scar because TF doesn't like rapping about it.

A comedian can bash any and all others, causing untold discomfort for the targets of jokes. But a comedian's scar is somehow sacrosanct because they'd prefer not to talk about it.

Not a big deal. But interesting. Those involved in the livejournal Tina Fey fan community may be a great resource for information and opinion about Fey and Saturday Night Live, but they will offer no assistance in unraveling the Mystery of the Scar.

The link.

Disappointing Dead End

The site asks "How Did Tina Fey Get the Scar on Her Face?" It the says "Click Here to Read More."

Sounds like a promising place to find the answer to our riddle, doesn't it? Well, it is NOT.

It is junk. Nothing. The link gives zero information.

No clues to be had.

Tina Fey's scar remains a mystery despite the promise held out by the site.

Don't believe me? Think I am holding out? You can see for yourself right here.
