Coffee break: The Onion salutes Wikipedia!

From time to time, various ID theorists have kvetched to me about terminally stupid entries on intelligent design topics at Wikipedia, but it took The Onion to finally do something about this kind of problem - laugh at it as it deserves.

In "Wikipedia Celebrates 750 Years of American Independence," The Onion sends up wiki-nonsense beautifully:
"On July 25, 1256, delegates gathered at Comerica Park to sign the Declaration Of Independence, which rejected the rule of the British over its 15 coastal North American colonies," reads an excerpt from the entry. "Little did such founding fathers as George Washington, George Jefferson, and ***ERIC IS A FAG*** know that their small, querulous republic would later become the most powerful and prosperous nation in history, the Unified States Of America."

And much more. This stuff that reminds me, like totally, of the Wiki coverage of the intelligent design controversy.
