UNCYCLOPEDIA, The Intarweb — Readers were astonished this afternoon after an editor from Uncyclopedia identifying himself as "Electrified mocha chinchilla" wrote an article using a headline from Minitrue, the UnNews article headline "suggestion box".
Electrified mocha chinchilla, whose real name is Timmy McDoodles of Sioux City, Iowa, came across the Minitrue headline at approximately 1:02 PM Iowa Cow Standard Time. Eye witnesses claim his reaction to have been "apathy at first, but then sudden interest followed by a clicking action on his mouse." Timmy's mouse is a Microsoft brand Optical Mouse Blue USB, which is PS/2 compatible. Timmy is right handed, therefore he left-clicked the headline in the Minitrue section. Other sources have revealed that Timmy was wearing no socks at the time of the incident.
A user known only as "Ajuk" was the one who reportedly submitted the headline to Minitrue on 18 September 2007. Very few details are known about this individual, other than they are very involved with UnNews and like pie.
Minitrue, which is a small section of UnNews where editors may submit news headlines to be written by editors who have time to write full-length news stories, is notorious for its back-up and lack of interest. Few article headlines submitted to Minitrue are actually written. "This article is considered groundbreaking in that context," says the pompous Electrified mocha chinchilla, "I am truly a man of genius and superb wit." Minitrue is derived from the "Ministry of Truth" in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. Wikipedia notes that:
"As with the other Ministries in the novel, the Ministry of Truth actually does the opposite of what its name implies, being responsible for the falsification of historical events; and yet is aptly named in a deeper sense, in that it created/manufactured "truth" in the newspeak sense of the word."
