I added the [Citation needed], as it is generally useful for annotating incomplete descriptions as well as it is funny due to Randall's frequent use of Wikipedia and citations around both in the comics and their use in "what-if". If anybody know how to make the the template have a parameter for tool-tip text, then that could further make the template useful for stating as to what exactly is needed in each use.

Five years later, an update for those who aren't familiar with this: this template is rarely used today to annotate the (now relatively few) incomplete explanations; if you see it on an explanation, it's probably as a joke after a painfully obvious statement.[citation needed] --Account (talk) 04:00, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Such jokes are indeed pretty funny more often than not, as long as there aren't more than one or two per typical explanation, IMHO. 02:24, 13 July 2022 (UTC)
