Apparently Stephen Colbert (whose show The Colbert Report is getting funnier by the day) decided to have some phone with the Wikipedia on his show the other day. Here's a description of what happened and the video clip from the show. It seems he tried to prove that the Wikipedia brings rise to a new form of reality--Wikiality--where what gets published on the Wikipedia becomes true (much like how if something is published on the Daily Irk, it must be true). He asked viewers to post bogus information about elephants to the Wikipedia. Fortunately for the Wikipedia, the site's maintenance volunteers were all over it.
