Wednesday- Uncyclopedia!

"Uncyclopedia- the 'content' free encyclopedia anyone can edit."

Does it sound insanely familiar, but you're thinking there's something wrong?

Yup...I did write that right(write-right... wah wah wah)

Uncyclopedia is a parody of Wikipedia, and it's got complete nonsense and like it says, it is "content" free, but it will definitely make a lot of sense for people who make sense out of non-sense. Makes sense?
The logo of Uncyclopedia is a potato(as opposed to the globe that's the logo of Wiki)

Anyway, in my office(and in most offices), almost all entertainment sites are blocked. So, what do you do when you are completely bugged? Go to www.uncyclopedia.org!

Trust me! You'll be laughing insanely.

Look out for comments of "Oscar Wilde" in almost all the articles.

Here is a sneak peek:

“Chenna I nahi yaar. Chenna Samosa”

~ Sardar on MADRAS

Chennai ( "chen" + "nai" = "red dog" in Tamil), formerly known as "MAD"Ras, short for a city full of Mad Rascals, or Madaraasapattinam, is the 4th "largest" and the 4th "best" city in the glorious nation of India. It is full of men carrying sickles and sticks ( the politicians and the police respectively ).

Iyers have a mad frigging obsession for Thayir Sadam (aka Curd Rice aka Yogurt mixed with rice boiled the previous night). Although the men of the newer generation have adopted this slick (and most times slimy) dish as a hang-over repellant, an Iyer meal typically ends with this delicacy.

A note on naming:- The algorithm for naming a son or daughter goes like this - combine 4 Gods name and follow it up with Iyer. Some samples are Balasubramanian Parthasarathy Iyer, Venkatakrishna Ramachandran Iyer.

The "Duckworth-Lewis" system

An early 19th century cricket scientist invented this controversial rule. When there is a hurricane within a radius of 140 000 kilometers from a game of cricket any player of any team may call upon the Duckworth-Lewis system to stop all ongoing play and ensue in chasing a duck, worth the amount of exactly one Lewis. The first team to catch the duck gets 1 Lewis to do with as they please. Some say the Lewis can hit 3 sixes with one sweep of the bat, some say he eats ball-boxes for breakfast and he reportedly calls players like Shane Warne and Brett Lee insufferable oafs, without as much as a twitch in his eye. The only thing we know is that he's called Lewis (and he was a fabled warrior of Medieval fame).

PS: The layout looks exactly like Wiki, so maybe people who peep into your screen off and on from behind, will get fooled :-D

PPS: I'm really hoping to see a Tamil Uncyclopedia up and rocking soon, like the TamilWiki.
