Uncyclopedia

Categories: , ,

Amid all the recent wringing of hands over Wikipedia's reliability, a new contender in the collaboratively-produced encyclopedia field has emerged: Uncyclopedia.

Self-described as "the content-free encyclopedia that anyone can edit," the Uncyclopedia attempts to undo Wikipedia's dominance in the cataloging of un-facts, and it does so with a premium* sense of absurdity. Most entries include apt Oscar Wilde quotes which aren't Oscar Wilde quotes.

My favorite entry so far is Your Mom. There is also an entry on Librarians, though this entry is basically a rehashing of librarian stereotypes (sigh. guess i have to start editing the entry, huh?).

I first read about it at Library Stuff, one of my new favorite blogs, btw.

*I'm taken with the word "premium" lately. Mostly as a result of reading Everything is Illuminated.
