Wikipedia plumbs the filthy depths of plumbing

'A sexual act involving a man and a female...'

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

NSFW It always cheers us up when some wag gets right in there down at Wikipedia and sabotages the world's leading provider of balanced, objective and unfiddled info. It's thanks very much then to Mick McCarthy who's just spotted an nice addition to the encyclopedia's entry on plumbing:

Wikipedia's entry on plumbing, or rather the sexual version

In case you've left your specs at home, the offending paragraph reads:

"Also, plumbing is a sexual act involving a man and a female. the aforementioned male pops his cock inn the birds c*nt, lubricating her ring, tickling and widening the said orifice. when that there hole is at maximum size, pop the scrotum, both knackers, in that bottomless pit of love. Plumbing is mint."

The top of the article quite rightly notes that it "may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia's quality standards". Quite right, because that should be "in the bird's c*nt". Come on people, raise your game here - what kind of example is that to set to kids who might be using this invaluable online resource to research a school project? ®
