So you don't think Wikipedia is awesome ? You may also believe it to be dry and totally devoid of humor. Bzzzt! Check out the synopsis of Baby Got Back for proof of awesomeness.
Still not convinced ? Ok, buckle up for a long bumpy ride through the Lamest Edit Wars of Wikipedia! Here's the intro illustration and caption for this article:

The visually oriented (or those averse to reading on and on and on and on) may prefer this graphical representation of the lamest Wikipedia edit wars.
The talk pages at Wikipedia are consistently hilarious. Here people seem to just say whatever pops into their heads, pertinent or not. Take, for instance, the August 19, 2010 entry on the talk page for The Beatles Wikipedia article (unedited, just as it appears):
The things are ever so complicated and i have to say all stories
surronded this band, I saw James Paul McCartney a real leader as memeber
who kept on the group together,he plays a lot music instruments, was a
good student at primary school, he composes easily,i know he depressed
after the dissolution, John Winston Lennon was a leader as an author at
especially the beginning, i know he liked poetry and did the school of
arts,i know he wanted to leave the group after meeting Yoko Ono, George
Harisson was a reserved person but i see him very keen, he was the
younger, i know he couldn't put more than a song in an album, john tell
him how to write a song in a same mood...Paul didn't want to help him
one day they were disputing when they recorded Let it Be,he introduced
the indu music, one day he said they could run a danger by meeting
people like kennedy ...Ringo started in 1962, i know he stayed in bed
during two years , he worked at a factory of wood, eight days a week was
his elocution, paul john and george helped him a little... he wrote
with george uctopus garden.he wanted to be actor. Brian Epstein was
their manager and george Martin their arranger productor. I saw a film
when they begun in Hambourg, they were really different, i saw Lennon
and McCartney always fussing and fighting each other about the drummer,
McCArtney was on horse lennon was mixing with feelings, they were with
pleasant wommen.... there was Breaks durring Let it be session.... Later
yoko forbidden julian for some mock up... I think lennon later was
tired for commitments...his solo songs had a very sensed I think
McCartney didn't want to be involved as a singer, he is not like that
..but he was right in a certain point of view. He said in Beatles he was
free how to write songs.i apreessied flaming pie and drivin rain....he
did hearted work in a classiacal album, but it's not the pain to be
accidented with a taxi when he say i appressiate your own song.
Need I say more ? Wikipedia - awesome & funny!
