Have you ever visited Wikipedia parody sites?
March 24, 2009 9:19pm CST
There are some sites out there like Encyclopedia Dramatica [ http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Main_Page ] and Uncyclopedia [ http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page ] which serve as parodies to Wikipedia. While I think there are a few select articles on the sites that are amusing, much of the humor seems to be rather acetic and...well, humorless. Any visitors have thoughts about the two sites?

Yes, I've been to these sites... they're so extensive for just being parody sites! There's a ton of pages, userbase and inside jokes... it's hard to keep track!! I agree that the humor is acedic.... it's usually based on internet memes or really really obscure references. I don't think that most people would find humor in a lot of the content provided there. Some of the things are funny, but most are just so bizarre, I don't know what to think. The internet... where everyone can contribute!! I guess if we have such a great thing like wikipedia, there has to be an inverse of it... thus, we have uncyclopedia and encylcopedia dramatica.
