    11 Of The Most Eccentric People On Wikipedia

    Who says you have to be sane to be important?

    Thanks to the jolly old Internet, anyone can be a 'person of note' with a little help from the right site. People you wouldn't normally sit next to on a bus are calling themselves Instagram celebrities and apparently we should all give a damn. YouTube has launched a rag-tag community of 'stars' who are able to make a living opening toys or yelling into a microphone while they play Mario Cart. Anyone can have a Wikipedia page, regardless of cultural worth or even significance. Want people searching Lincoln for a class project to stumble across your life story? Just create an account and let your self-importance shine.

    In truth, the best collection of the unworthy elite online can be easily unearthed on Wikipedia. This amazing pseudo encyclopedia of shared knowledge is a rabbit hole worth falling into – leading the reader to an online wonderland of useless facts peopled with some of the most surreal individuals you'll have the dubious pleasure to uncover.

    Who said you have to contribute to society to be important? Not Wikipedia apparently. This following collection of insignificant significant folks is just the tip of the weirdo iceberg…

    Sir George Sitwell – Unsung Hero of the Ongoing War against Wasps
