User:Joe9320/UnNews:Wikipedia is on Blackout!
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
WIKIPEDIA, The Internet - Evil overlord Jimbo Wales announced that he will cut off Wikipedia's electricity supply today as a protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act. Inside the Wikimedia Cabal, the senators had taken their votes to cut off the electricity supply, which will cut off Wikipedia from the rest of the world. A similar vote was done in Wikipedia's Italian sector on October 2011 when the Italian Parliament wanted to destroy copyrighted content stashed inside Wikipedia.
The Overlord Jimbo Wales stated that:
|I'm all in favor of it, and I think it would be great if we could act quickly to coordinate with Reddit. I'd like to talk to our government affairs advisor to see if they agree on this as useful timing, but assuming that's a greenlight, I think that matching what Reddit does (but in our own way of course) per the emerging consensus on how to do it, is a good idea. But that means we need to move forward quickly on a concrete proposal and vote - we don't have the luxury of time that we usually have, in terms of negotiating with each other for weeks about what's exactly the best possible thing to do. As I understand it, the Foundation is talking to people about how we can geolocate and guide people to their Congressperson, etc. Geoff will know about that.|
If the voting was successful, Wikipedia will proceed to cut off their electricity supply and blank all articles, including copyrighted images, pictures, diagrams and any of the sentences plagiarised, and attack the U.S. Congress. Meanwhile, the war on Uncyclopedia was put on hold whilst preparations to attack SOPA's army begin. But many people oppose this blackout. An unnamed student (whose name was withheld for security reasons) said, "I have an essay tomorrow, and if Wikipedia cuts our electricity how am I going to finish it? But I am still against Stop Online Piracy Act". Professor Stavros Notapotofpissinos stated, "This man Jimbo, he gone up my jimmies again! Where can I put up my concise information now? And it definitely will not go up on Uncyclopedia!"
Congressman Lamar Smith refused to reply when UnNews called his office on regarding his opinion on the blackout.
