64 Of The Funniest Wikipedia Edits By Internet Vandals
With so much fake news floating around these days, it's difficult to know just who and what to believe. While Wikipedia is usually a reliable source of factual information, from time to time people hack Wiki and slip some alternative facts in there too. And since it's a free encyclopedia, created entirely by collaborators, it turns out that some of them have quite a knack for humor. From Charlie Sheen being half man, half cocaine to American Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky being a humanoid evolution spawned in the bowels of Poseidon, you never can be too sure if what you're reading is 100% truth. So common sense comes in handy if you are preparing a paper according to Wikipedia's facts.
Luckily, these changes don't stay for long and are spotted by moderators before they even see the light of day. To illustrate how crazy some of these hijackings (or at least attempts) have been, Bored Panda has collected this list of funny Wikipedia edits caught on screenshots.
