Wiki Wednesday

In honor of Wingsday and 80's Fix Wednesdays, I would like to introduce Wiki Wednesdays.

Remember when you had to go to the library to look in the encyclopedias? Or if you were lucky, your parents would buy you an encyclopedia set from a door to door salesmen or from Publix(?). My mom was on the Publix plan, but I think we only got Volumes A and B thru Br. Makes it kind of hard to do a research paper. My research papers and projects were always on Switzerland (I don't really know why, maybe because they were neutral?), so I had to go to the library. Wiki Wednesdays is about the encyclopedia entries that would have never made it into the Funk & Wagnall's at the library. To me, this is the beauty of Wikipedia, the random crap that maybe 10 people care about in the entire world.

Today's Entry is The Flying Spaghetti Monster (also known as the Spaghedeity). Of particular note is the section on Polk County, FL and our connection to this parody religion.

Enjoy, when you have time, and stay tuned for more Wiki Wednesdays.
