Colbert Chaos on Wikipedia

Stephen Colbert stirred the Wikipedia pot on Monday when he coined a new word–“Wikiality.” You Tube has the footage and Newsvine has the story:

In the segment, Colbert logs on to the Wikipedia article about his show to find out whether he usually refers to Oregon as “California’s Canada or Washington’s Mexico.” Upon learning that he has referred to Oregon as both, he demonstrates how easy it is to disregard both references and put in a completely new one (Oregon is Idaho’s Portugal), declaring it “the opinion I’ve always held, you can look it up.”

Colbert went on to encourage his fans to vandalize entries on “elephants” as an experiment in “truthiness.” I prefer the Howard Stern fans who prank call radio shows. But that’s just me.
