20 Cases of Hilarious Wikipedia Trolling We Can’t Help But Love

A couple of weeks ago, Turkey’s president Erdogan blocked his country’s access to Wikipedia. That’s right. Not a single person in the country can access the all-purpose site. This was obviously a dangerous move when it comes to maintaining a democracy, and even more dangerous for all of the students who now have no source from which to copy all of their assignments. Or as one other insane world leader likes to put it: SAD.

The question remains, though – why did he do it? Was it perhaps because of what was done to his page on the world’s most famous free encyclopedia (if you don’t know what we’re talking about, you’ll find out in a minute)? More likely, it’s because the website offers crowdsourced knowledge for the masses – making it the mortal enemy of any dictator.

Either way, it’s important to remember that while the site offers plenty of easy to access information when you have to churn out a couple of term papers, it’s hardly accurate. And before you get all uppity about how it’s just as accurate as any other source, don’t worry. We come bearing proof.
