Wikipedia is one of the biggest, most expansive research tools for students and professionals of all ages, even if the information in its entries isn't always the most accurate. That all-encompassing nature can be annoying -- you often have to scan through lengthy, factual essays to get the one thing you're searching for.

TL;DR Wikipedia strips away all that extra, unnecessary context to what people really think about anything, be it a household object or an international celebrity. In 100 words, these new and improved entries get the point across better than the originals, especially with the added layer of snark. Maybe the admins of Wikipedia could learn a thing or two about conciseness from this blog.
