The 6 Most Terrifying Sex Illustrations On Wikipedia

In the days before the Internet, teenagers had basically two options to learn the ins and outs of boning. They amounted to either A) scrambled cable softcore, which was like watching two swarms of bees fighting in a motel room made of non-Euclidean geometry, or B) chancing upon a drifter’s cache of Juggs secreted away in the woods behind the neighborhood liquor store.

Nowadays, young folks don’t have to hazard a vagrant named “Clawhammer Jack” double-fisting bottles of cooking sherry to learn coital choreography. (Spoiled rotten, they are.) No, they can just turn to Wikipedia, that website known throughout the land for drowning the Encyclopedia Britannica factory in unwanted knowledge and tears. Read more…

Despite being one of the most visited sites on the Internet, Wikipedia is jam-packed with marvelously janky doodles of dead-eyed humans doing it. Read more …

Today’s Lady News: Wikipedia Is A Dickipedia

Michael Lohan, The Latest To Be WikiPranked

I have an inner 5-year-old. And this inner 5-year-old totally thinks it’s funny when people prank Wikipedia. Take for example, one jokester who amended Michael Lohan‘s Wikipedia page on Monday. After the whole bringing-cops-to-Lindsay’s-apartment kerfuffle last week, Lindsay had Tweeted, “My dad is crazy!!” And so in lieu of adding actual info about Michael to the page, this person made the page read, “My dad is crazy!! My dad is crazy!! My dad is crazy!!” over and over again. Yes, it’s juvenile. But also funny. [Radar]

After the jump, other stars who’ve had their Wikipedia pages tampered with. Keep reading »

Kanye West Gets Dissed Big Time On Wikipedia

We’re all a little frustrated with Kanye West right about now, but someone recently vented by editing his now-protected Wikipedia page with enough insults to humble Mr. West for at least a day or two, if that’s even possible. Here’s what the now-gone version of the page said:

“Kanye West is a dope dealing, crack smoking, cocaine sniffing, no talent, immature, cowardly, racist son of a bitch who doesn’t even DESERVE to be on a stage or in a studio. He is also a spoiled rotten Mama’s Boy who screams and cries and stamps his foot and throws a tantrum when he doesn’t get his way. I bet his dead mother is happy that she doesn’t have to put up with his lame ass s**t anymore. His true colors have come out. F**K YOU, KANYE! After your actions tonight at the MTV VMA’s you have sealed your career in a lead lined coffin which I sincerely hope is on it’s way to the bottom of the deepest, darkest hole at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.”

Wow, that’s harsh! This is just further evidence that celebs shouldn’t drink when there’s a microphone and a camera nearby. [Wikipedia via Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
