Uncyclopedia: Wikipedia Gone Wild

This is a dream come true for me. Finally, a website where others can join in your own insanity. Uncyclopedia is set up exactly like Wikipedia where anyone can edit anything, only the point of the website is to be utterly absurd.

From the Beginner's Guide:
There are a couple of important pieces to note in this article

* "Uncyclopedia is an encyclopedia full of misinformation and utter lies."

We are not wikipedia, but that should already have been plainly obvious. Fact is discouraged, comedy is paramount. However, please note that the opposite of the truth is hardly ever funny. Funny > lies.

* "The mission of Uncyclopedia is to provide the world's misinformation in the least redeeming and most searingly sarcastic and humourous way possible."

Humorous is the operative word here. While we say sarcasm is vaunted, we are not a dumping ground for pure propaganda, humourless nonsense, opinion, or flames.

* "Try to be funny and not just stupid."

Stupid is not the same as funny. The next section illustrates this point exactly.

The random page link is a highly recommended way of browsing the site. I can see the becoming my new addiction.

Some examples:

"UnRisk is a cunning advertising ploy produced by Parker Brothers, a division of Hasbro. It was invented before any continental shifts had occurred by the superhero, movie director and insurance guru; VoleMan."

Kitten Huffing:
"Kitten huffing is a controversial practice that has recently been growing as a popular and healthy alternative to street drugs. Despite a long history in Western culture, the practice remains largely taboo. Excessive huffing has been known to produce undesirable side effects, including addiction, damaged sinuses, corrupted brains, which may lead to someone thinking they're something they aren't, and, in some cases, death."

Donald Trump
"Donald Trump is an Ethiopian actor, revolutionary leader, hair donor and tramp. He is the grandfather of Donald Duck and uncle of Scrooge McDuck. He is famous for being the highest paid anchor on American television (5 cents/year). He is also a multiple time winner(2000 BC to 2000 AD) of the Mr Sexiest hairstyle in the Universe pageant which he also owns."

"1937 was cancelled as of December 28, 1936, due to lack of interest. The toolings are rumored to have turned up on eBay several years ago, but the company refuses to answer inquiries."
