Onion ‘celebrates’ Wikipedia

The Onion has got around to satirising Wikipedia, with an article entitled "Wikipedia celebrates 750 years of American Independence. Founding Fathers, Patriots, Mr T. honored."

Here’s a taste of what’s in the article:

"The commemorative page is one of the most detailed on the site, rivaling entries for Firefly and the Treaty Of Algeron for sheer length. Subheadings include "Origins Of Colonial Discontent," "Some Famous Guys In Wigs And Three-Cornered Hats," and "Christmastime In Gettysburg." It also features detailed maps of the original colonies—including Narnia, the central ice deserts, and Westeros—as well as profiles of famous American historical figures such as Benjamin Franklin, Special Agent Jack Bauer, and Samuel Adams who is also a defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals."
