Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia on the internet where you can find the definition to almost everything. What will happen if the reference you are checking has an error? Check some pages in Wikipedia that were erroneous which you will find hilarious.
The best part about the Internet is its vast knowledge of everything. Whatever it is that you need to find the answer to, do research on, or just look up — you can find what you’re looking for on the World Wide Web.
Unfortunately, because it’s so accessible to everyone, not all information posted online can be trusted. Wikipedia is a website that many people like to visit when finding information on certain topics or people. Wikipedia, however, can easily be edited by ANYONE.
Now we’re not saying Wikipedia is entirely filled with lies. There’s a lot of good factual information on there! Nonetheless, online pranksters do like to slip in some alternative facts.
Check out some of the funniest Wikipedia edits below. Be sure to check for the red underlines to see what was edited in each post!
#1. Mariah Carey
She is beyond embarrassment… but she certainly can carry a note or two.
The most simplistic description of what a drummer is… and it’s entirely spot on.
#3. God Complex
Ignore the long paragraphs and skip to the very bottom under the “See Also” suggestions.
#4. Ray Romano
This is brilliant. Getting suspended was well worth this.
#5. Dana Boente
Appointed by Barack Obama but became Trump’s sock puppet…. Something’s a little fishy.
#6. Serial Killers
Oh no, what are we supposed to do with our lives now?
#7. Recep Tayyip Erdogan
So THAT’S what he looks like. Always wondered and now I know.
#8. Emma Stone
So does that mean she’s… Lucifer? What other angel has fallen out of the sky?
#9. Charlie Sheen
He probably was half and half at one time, before it caught up with him…
I wonder how many times he’s enlarged it by now.
All of the music notes are missing.
#12. Extant species
Now that… is a clear case of “original thinking.”
#13. Harlem Shake
Looks like someone who should have never clicked on edit clicked on edit.
Wait, what? Snakes are made of frog tubes? Or am I reading this in the wrong context?
#15. State Slogans
I really hope all those slogans are real.
#16. Piracy Off the Coast of Somalia
Accurate description of what the suspected pirates are doing, couldn’t have been said in any better words.
In all reality, reality is what you make it (in addition to all these great definitions).
#18. The Sherlocks
Now Adam Boyd… has got the right idea! This was a brilliant plan (only because it worked).
#19. Run-On Sentence
Reading this one may make your brain hurt. Mission accomplished to this Wikipedia prankster.
#20. First Law of Thermodynamics
Didn’t know thermodynamics and Fight Club had so much in common.
Now, THIS is true sadness! What an unfortunate soul. Poor boy didn’t need to go through so much anguish at such a young age.
#22. Bryant B. Newcomb
Yep, that totally makes sense. I would have the same demands if I had the same name as him.
#23. Jeremy Renner
So it appears, the lizard people are real. You’ve been warned!
#24. Writer’s Block
Well, you can’t explain what writer’s block is better than this.
#25. Katie Ledecky
This one’s gotta be true. It’s the only explanation for her abilities.
