Link me to interesting Wikipedia pages.

I love reading intriguing, interesting, amusing, weird, scary, or even morbid Wikipedia pages. What are some of the best reads you know of?

Here are some of mine…

Wikipedia: Unusual articles

You will find such topics as…

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Toilet Paper Orientation

I’ve spent many hours purusing this page and the associated links:

An outside source: the Onion AV Club has an occasional feature called Wiki Wormhole.

Some entries are more interesting than others, but I like how the features follow the real-life way we read hypertext for fun, clicking on links that take us to random places.

In line with your had_had_had article.
