UK leaves Uncyclopedia
Fake News that's honestly fake

WIKIA CITY, California -- British Uncyclopedians, in harmony with their nation's recent vote to withdraw from the European Union, have walked out of Uncyclopedia and have declared that "we'll do it on our own."
"We are sodding off, as there is bugger-all reason to stay," said one prolific author from Scotland, prompting a haughty scolding from an American Admin that writing in code is cryptic and never funny.
The satire wiki is no stranger to fissures and schisms, having proven in 2013 that the best elixir for a declining population of funny writers willing to learn the arcana of Wikicoding is to rend the project neatly in half and dedicate one half to sabotaging the other.
Unlike the Brexit campaign, there are no statistics to measure the consequences of this newest group rage-quit, as webhost Wikia does not publish readership figures on individual wikis but merely insists that it is the world's biggest social media website, excepting Facebook, Twitter, and a few dozen others that can't match its content anyway and rarely have any Bronies at all. For that reason, Wikia says that highly suggestible American teenage girls — the world's most lucrative advertising target — rarely use the bigger sites.
The remaining Americans will have no remaining outlet except listy toilet humor — which may prompt them to consider reunifications and re-rage-quits, which are always a surer success than irony and misdirecting the reader.
