LOL of the day: #FactsWithoutWikipedia

SOPA and PIPA are serious issues, and it’s nice to see some websites taking action to draw attention to what’s happening in Washington.

But that doesn’t mean Twitter can’t have some fun with Wikipedia being offline.

#FactsWithoutWikipedia is basically a hashtag where people tweet purposely incorrect information, but it’s hilarious. Here are a few of my faves:

 

@elonjames: Beyonce Knowles also known as “Beyowulf” started her career when she fought Grendel & his mother in Denmark, 800 AD. #FactsWithoutWikipedia

@strangedave: Pluto is no longer a planet due to copyright claims from the Disney corporation #factswithoutWikipedia

 @BIGJOEONTHEGO: Nashville is named after the Don Johnson character in ‘Nash Bridges.’ #factswithoutwikipedia

 @gitguy: In the Disney cartoon, the voice of Bambi was done by a very young James Earl Jones. #FactsWithoutWikipedia

 @davidgate: In 1983 Sweden changed the colours of their flag to Blue and Yellow after the phenomenal success of the IKEA brand. #FactsWithoutWikipedia

@scottkleinberg: There is only 1 Chinese restaurant in America that adds any sour to sweet and sour chicken. #FactsWithoutWikipedia

As you might have already guessed, I’ll be adding a few of my own. Tweet me yours too at @scottkleinberg if you want. I’d love to see them and possibly RT them.
