I hit the wrong link today and read a somewhat hilarious front page summary. I was very surprised when I saw that I was not, as I had thought, on Uncyclopedia, but on Wikipedia instead. [1]

The article is about the lovely Miss Ima Hogg, and the front page reads:

"Ima Hogg was an enterprising circus emcee who brought culture and class to Houston, Texas. A storied ostrich jockey, she once rode to Hawaii to visit the Queen. Raised in government housing, young Ima frolicked among a backyard menagerie of raccoons, possums and a bear. Her father, "Big Jim" Hogg, in an onslaught against fun itself, booby-trapped the banisters she loved to slide down, shut down her money-making schemes, and forced her to pry chewing gum from furniture. He was later thrown from his seat on a moving train and perished; the Hogg clan then struck black gold on land Big Jim's will forbade them from selling. Tragically, Miss Hogg (a future doctor) nursed three family members, none of whom lived very long. She once sweet-talked a burglar into returning purloined jewelry and told him to get a job. Well into her nineties, she remained feisty, and even exchanged geriatric insults with an octogenarian pianist at her birthday party. Hogg claimed to have received thirty proposals of marriage in her lifetime, and to have rejected them all. Hogg was revered as the "First Lady of Texas", and her name and legacy still thrive today. (more...)"


I'm pretty sure, looking at it, that it's been vandalized. To the culprit: I salute you sir.
