If you thought wikipedia was good, check this out. A link I picked up from some newspaper is absolutely amazing. Sample this article on India :
"India was discovered in 1492 by Christopher Columbus, circumnavigating the world to find China. India's capital is named Deli, after the fact that so much processed human meat is consumed there. India is the second most populous country in the world, after Luxembourg, with 137 quintillion (1.37*10^17) people. .....
As India was too large, it was divided into pieces in 1947 to help the people to fight with each other in an organized way and pretend that their backwardness is not as important as their need to fight....
The people of India used to be very civilized until they got bored of it. Then, some Europeans saw India and decided they wanted it. When the Queen heard them whine for it, she decided it was ok for them to have it. Then, one very old bald man said that we must not fight for independence. That will confuse the British. The British got confused and left.
This and many more such venerable treats.
