[Warning: The Oatmeal’s language is pretty free-flowing]
If you thought Wikipedia was the greatest invention of the 21st century, check out Uncyclopedia. Then think again.

Our About page
Our About page is funny. Seriously. It brings out the weirdest facts and deepest secrets about everyone in the team. Reading everyone’s bios is as much fun as thinking about the process that went behind it.
