Look at what I found on Wikipedia 2006-05-18 16:27:37
To tell you the truth, I'm not sure why I never started whoring this out around the internet earlier.
I was browsing through Wikipedia one day back in March, aimlessly jumping from article to article, and I somehow ended up at the page for "Misère game". When I got there, I found that there was no article or defenition, just the word "hi"
I thought "Ok, looks like routine vandalism, I'll just revert the page to an earlier version." But then something caught my eye. The same user who vandalised the page had made an edit to it just one minute earlier. Seemed interesting that he'd make two edits, so I decided to check out the first one.
This, friends, is where shit got mad trippy.
There I saw a copy of the original article, but where the short stub article ended, there had been placed a 37,630 word long completely nonsensical story about absolutely nothing.
This is what makes it truly bizarre. There were no other edits by the user, nowhere on his user page where he had any explanation, nothing on the talk page about it, and the story was nowhere else to be found on the internet. This means that he wrote it himself, and apparently didn't use it for anything else, at least not on the internet. I can't imagine he printed it out anywhere, because it would take nearly 60 pages. So basically, he wrote this preposterously lengthy story so he could post it on one of the most obscure wikipedia articles ever, only to immediately cover up the edit with another.
And what makes this all extra weird is that I found it and fixed the page barely an hour after he posted it.
One of these days, I'm going to read this entire story, just so his effort didn't go to waste. But I also tell you, the people of Newgrounds, so that you may see the insanity and appreciate it, and spread it to the far corners of the interweb, perhaps even making it some sort of new annoying fad.
And now, the bizarre, strange, and inexplicable science fiction story you've all been waiting to see.
