A failed attempt at a Wikipedia parody that is actually a cover for a non-stop bitching and whining fest, in which it's users insult things for simply being popular to give off the illusion of being iconoclastic or edgy.

For every entry that may actually be funny, there are at least five that are simply a twenty year old loser coming up with sentences to fit the word faggotry into while "sticking it" to some sub-culture of people no one in their right minds gives two shits about.

Tips for the budding ED writer:

Believe that the word "lulz" is some magical incantation that successfully shields you from potential scrutiny. Apparently when you do everything that your site condemns, you are no longer a neckbeard basement dweller, obsessed loser if you write for ED and use "I did it for teh lulz" as an opening disclaimer.

Each entry should read like the World's Angriest Mad Lib. Take X (the subject that will garner the most "look at me, I need attention because no one loves me" points) then start with a stupid origin ripped from the previous 500 entries. Swear a lot. Link to no less than 400 other entries, 200 of which should be their lame inside jokes/memes that are somehow less retarded than everyone else's. Annie may! Betty Sue! 100 years ago! *wipes tear* Pure comedy gold.

Basically just copy and past a previous entry, take out the subject key words, add a few "faggotry's" and cock/gay/nigger/Jew/Nazi/rape jokes to it and call it a day. That way, you can rest assured knowing you pissed off some random people for no real reason.

When people get upset, pretend that no one is supposed to take it seriously (at least, not more seriously than you do) and that you know what parody or satire looks like. Also stand by the false assumption that you are funny and that anyone who simply finds the complete reliance on the same five stale jokes lame doesn't have a sense of humor. Also "funny" means biting everyone else's writing style to fit in.

You can be offensive and funny. Comedians do it all the time. However, there is a reason most of the ED writers are on ED. They just aren't funny.
Encyclopedia Dramatica is a nerd-run hate site disguised as a satirical Wikipedia but anyone with a half a brain can see through that paper thin pretense.

A wiki-based collaborative site humour cataloguing internet culture, memes and internet drama, especially relating to livejournal, 4chan, wikipedia and troll activites lampooning virtually all popular subcultures taking a crude and ill-restrained approach. It shouldn't be taken too seriously.
encyclopedia dramatica; i did it for the lulz.

A group of former /b/tards that were banned from 4chan for posting child porn. These former /b/tards (now just "tards") went and vandalized 4chan's Wikipedia article, and were promptly banned from there, too. Out of bitterness, these people began Encyclopedia Dramatica as a way to get back at the Internet and fill the gigantic void where their e-cocks used to be. Articles on Encyclopedia Dramatica usually consist of websites or people which are all branded as "unfunny" and/or "gay" because Encyclopedia Dramatica is the Absolute Internet Judge Of All That Is Funny And/Or Gay.
The pedophile was banned from a website, so he wrote an article about the website on Encyclopedia Dramatica.

An "encyclopedia" where people go to bash things that they dont like, but the majority of people do. The meeting place for 13 year olds who dont have that many freinds and spend all of their life on the internet writing hate-shit about jews, youtube, blacks, arabs, and etc.
If you dont like the site, a little mid-pubescent boy will send his lulz minions to attack you with tr0lls.
You see many people describing hate for ED on Urban Dictionary. And you know what? They're mostly thumbed up.
Encyclopedia Dramatica is the most unfunniest pile of lies, racism, and shit that I've ever seen on the internet. Which, no, it's not serious business...I know you're being mocking of noobs, but how can you mock what you already are?

For any first-time web user looking to see what the internet (and, sub sequentially, its users) is really like, than look no further. From crude, childish humor to people who hate your band, Encyclopedia Dramatica is the perfect representation of what the interwebs is REALLY all about. Lampooning everything including itself, ED puts a funny and often offensive twist on every conglomerated experience (good, bad, or otherwise) you've ever had on the internet. Free from guilt, remorse, or liability, its authors poke fun at (read: insult) everything from Live Journal feuds to politics, gay marriage to women's rights. Be it video games or porn search engines, nothing is sacred, everything is up for grabs, and if its popular or blog-worthy, you'll most likely find someone tearing it a new one on Encyclopedia Dramatica.
Most weekend lesbians are also attention whores, and will never actually do the deed should the situation arise. This only compounds on their total stupidity, as telling someone about how you drunkenly kissed another girl is like bragging to a black person about a really deep tan you had once.

A website claiming to be satirical, but in fact it is just used by fourteen year old losers to insult anything they dislike.

A site where rejects from Wikipedia who prefer stereotypical bitching over factual information post the most meaningless shit you will ever see in your entire life.

Go to Encyclopedia Dramatica and look up some band. This is what you'll see.

"(Band name here) is a piece of shit band thats gay and sucks dick. Here is a picture of one of the band members having gay sex. Please note that this is NOT photoshopped. *Photoshopped picture here*"

They claim that wikipedia has no good information that revolves around the internet or internet culture. But what they don't realize is that Wikipedia is a fucking online encyclopedia, unlike UrbanDictionary which is a site where people like me post their opinions rather than real information. Wikipedia is for real information that will help you out in real life with things such as reports or research.

In short, Encyclopedia Dramatica sucks.
Encyclopedia Dramatica... failure in it's purest form.
