Wikipedia:Unusual articles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We've been sharing some of the best from this on IRC for the past hour or so. Some of these are brilliant

Meh, Tropes fills me with anger. I have film classes that are basically the equivalent of Tropes. I take tests on bs like this. Therefore, Tropes is ruined forever for me
However, that wiki page is pretty fantastic. Thanks HNM!

TV tropes is bad... You can't stop reading. you read one page, read something else, then several hours later... "what happened to the day?"

Wikpedia does it too for me though, but to a lesser extent.
