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”
