Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Jesus walk into a bar. The bartender turns them and says, “Hey, did you know you’re among the most edited Wikipedia pages?”
That’s not a great punchline, but it is a fact. Someone compiled a list of the most edited regular Wikipedia pages, and while those three ranked pretty high, none of them were number one. Take a look at the chart:
Seems like there’s not really a lot of surprises on this list, although we are wondering why so many people are obsessed with people who died in 2013, 2010 and 2009 but 2011 and 2012 didn’t make the list. And who keeps editing the Wii page? There’s only like five games for that console, and most of them just involve playing fake tennis or bowling.
Also, we’re not sure what the hell Ben 10 is or why it has so many damn aliens that it required over 20,000 edits last year, but we’re guessing that’s excessive.
