Uncyclopedia is a parody encyclopedia created in January 2005.[1] It now has over 23,000 articles. Popular topics parodied include Global warming, Evolution and Creation, the Bush regime, 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, despite being a parody of Wikipedia, supports much of the same material that Wikipedia does. Its lack of standards results in an obviously liberal stance, and much of their humor is directed at Christian and Conservative values. In particular, their article on Conservapedia is composed mostly of hate speech, labelling Conservatives as "retards". In addition, they attack creationism via a "pro-creationist" article, which mocks creationism by phrases like "evolution will get you sent straight to hell" and "Darwin was a **** Satanist".

Shortly after Jerry Falwell went to the Lord (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 reinstituted the hangman's noose in Lynchburg, Virginia (1956).

Update: Uncyclopedia finally deleted the Jerry Falwell article on 10th November, 2007.[2]

Uncyclopedia also has an article labeled "Bad Right Wing Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense".[3]
