This is the name we're going with? "Vendor" isn't good? "Blue and orange salesman" sort of implies he's blue and orange. His shirt is, but he's not. --Buddy 05:28, 2 September 2011 (CEST)

I know it the name sounds pretty silly, but it was the best name I could come up with.
"Vendor" is probably not a good idea, as it's too random. We have at least six articles on people who are vendors. Sanfazer 19:58, 2 September 2011 (CEST)
We do? I'd like to see them. Perhaps they belong in a category? (Or do they already have one?) Hmm. I still think he needs a better name. Just can't think of one. --Buddy 20:02, 2 September 2011 (CEST)
I agree. (This is the category. I'm wondering how you missed it...) Sanfazer 20:46, 2 September 2011 (CEST)
Prolly cuz I was looking for "vendor" and also I'm apparently too dumb to see the categories that this very page is in. --Buddy 22:43, 2 September 2011 (CEST)
Look on the bright side: You didn't fail as hard as that guy who called this character a "blue and orange salesman". [rimshot]
I suppose you feel the same way about Yellow and red lawyer. Do you have any suggestions to improve that name? Robot Attorney was, to my knowledge, the first name he had, but there are already two other characters sharing that designation. Sanfazer 17:26, 3 September 2011 (CEST)
Yeah, not great names but there's not many options that really work and none are any good really. "Paper hatted salesman" is the best I can come up with unless we were to refer to him by his first known job "Horse d'Oeuvres salesman", as that was probably also the longest appearance. - Quolnok 17:53, 3 September 2011 (CEST)
The name Paper hatted salesman is better than both the Blue name and the Horse name in my opinion. There's no telling if his next appearance will be his longest and there's no need to move the page a second time next year, when this can be settled today.
When I was first considering a name for him, I thought if Blue and orange salesman should be hyphenated and came to the conclusion that it was unnecessary. (Maybe I was wrong?) But I feel that Paper hatted salesman would best be. Sanfazer 18:06, 3 September 2011 (CEST)
Seeing as how this very page points out that he wasn't wearing his trademark blue and orange at least once, his only consistent feature is his paper hat, maybe that would indeed be a good name. --Buddy 21:23, 3 September 2011 (CEST)
Very well. A solution's been found! I'm going to make the changes now. Sanfazer 22:46, 3 September 2011 (CEST)
