I think I’ve just discovered the new spokesman for our “Nofollow me to Wikipedia” campaign – Stephen Colbert.

As Rand points out, Colbert has already taken many stabs at Wikipedia – even getting his viewers to change the entry on “elephants” to say the population has tripled in the past ten years. His latest funnies include:

Wikipedia – The encyclopedia where you can be an authority, even if you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

My favorite is when he offers $5 to the first person who changes the entry on “reality” to “reality is a commodity”. Then mocks all those that might say “that’s not what reality is”..

“Oh really? Go and look it up on Wikipedia, I think you’ll find that I’m right”

Great stuff. If anyone from the Colbert show is reading, I’d love to have him help our efforts. 😉
