No, this isn’t going to be a serious discussion about the pros/cons, editorial responsibility/ lack thereof of Wikipedia. Because I’m not in that kind of mood this week. It’s much more frivolous than that.
Have you ever wondered why we just accept certain phrases at face value? Why people use them over and over again without thinking of their other meanings? Like no-one bats an eye when someone says their phone is a Siemens?
I looked up something on Wikipedia today, and started giggling when I read in the header – “This article has some issues.”
I think it was the use of “some” that really set me off. Like, wow, this article is seriously messed-up. Requires therapy kind of messed-up.
This is possibly an indication that I need a holiday.
