Wikipedia - rubbish but funny

Wikipedia is rubbish, as everyone knows.

However, some pages are worth a look.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Most_vandalized_pages

That's their best one, and it preserves the antics of the heroic wikipedia vandals "forever". Here are some highlights, reproduced word for word.

Dyslexia - Vandalized daily, multiple anon edits, usually with deletions, obscenities, deliberate scrambling of text, or insertion of jokes

Falkland Islands - An anon editing under various 212.120.xxx.xxx addresses repeatedly removes "Malvinas" from the first line against consensus, claiming that consensus doesn't matter.

Oklahoma Christian University - Vandalized a lot given nondescript nature of the school. Students there vandalize page, employees there revert it.

List of transgendered people - An anonymous AOL editor from VA persistently removing or hiding three "Catholic" entries on the list for months.

Iain Lee - One or more users spending all day everyday for the past few weeks adding bad jokes and personal attacks.

Taiwan - Anonymous vandal with ever changing ip addresses who turns this into an article on the Republic of China.

Rove McManus - Vandalised regularly by anons who insert quotes around the word 'comedian'.

Chuck Norris would kick your arse, with or without special patent jeans. We will never need an army as long as Chuck Norris is there to protect us.

Day 485 on the Alan Osler page. Still no updates. Reviewers remarked the quality of the prose and the incisiveness of the wit had not been in any way diluted. Its was exactly as good as it had been for the past year.

I have to learn to speak German first, apparently.

Why do you have to learn German? I think its so that you can fully partake in S&M swinging.
