Uncyclopedia is a parody encyclopedia project created in January 2005[1]to lampoon Wikipedia's extensive coverage, by mirroring their style of articles. It now has over 29,000 articles[2]. Popular topics parodied include Global warming, Evolution and Creation, the Bush administration, Conservapedia, and popular culture. A recurring joke on the site is making up Oscar Wilde quotes as well as quotes by Chuck Norris, Captain Obvious, Kanye West, and Russian Reversals.

Uncyclopedia's userbase, despite being a parody of Wikipedia, supports much of the same liberal material that Wikipedia does. It is hosted by Wikia, Jimbo Wales' for-profit webhost. Its lack of standards results in an obviously liberal stance, and much of their satire is directed at Christian and Conservative values.

As 2011, very few pages are in their "Liberal" catagory.

Uncyclopedia is far from family friendly; it contains many offensive words and images in its articles. Shortly after Jerry Falwell died (15th May, 2007), Uncyclopedia presented an article with the following highly offensive statements:

BREAKING NEWS!

Jerry Falwell has died.

DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD, THE WITCH IS DEAD, THE WITCH IS DEAD, DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD, THE MEAN OL' WICKED WITCH IS DEAD!
Dr. (it is a little known fact that he earned six PhDs) Jerry Fartwell (born: Breadline Era, died: Nappy Headed Imus Era) was a fat [obscenity deleted] bastard and famous mongoloid who re-instituted the hangman's noose in Lynchburg, Virginia (1956).

Update: Uncyclopedia finally deleted the Jerry Falwell article on 10th November, 2007.[3]

Uncyclopedia also has an article labeled "Bad Right Wing Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense".[4] This is an example of Uncyclopedian censorship.
