    Maybe they should stop targetting kids then, the perverts.

    I guess this has been posted before: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Unusual_articles . Wikipedia's own response to this thread.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almost-everywhere

    I like how it sounds like an article about everywhere in the world - except Walsall and Bandar Seri Begawan.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fucking_Hell

    Fucking Hell is a German Pilsner or pale lager. It is named after the village of Fucking in Austria...

    ...In 2010, two German businessmen, Stefan Fellenberg and Florian Krause, applied to register a Community Trade Mark to name a beer "Fucking Hell". The Fucking mayor, Franz Meindl, objected to Fucking Hell on the grounds that there was no Fucking brewery.

    I just love the name: Mexico City's "Museo del Objeto del Objeto", or "Museum of the Object of the Object".

    ha! i was always an "over" person until we got our cats, who would play with the roll and unravel it. We then tried flipping it to the "under" position and they suddenly left it alone. I guess it just puzzled them, although admittedly they aren't very smart.

    Does WikiHow count as Wikipedia? I love this article:
