John Lennon red-links on Wikipedia…

SAN FRANCISCO—Users of the popular reference website Wikipedia were reportedly surprised this week upon discovering that the online encyclopedia contained no entry for Beatles co-founder and legendary singer-songwriter John Lennon. “John Lennon sold over a billion records and influenced an entire generation, so I guess I just figured he would have his own Wikipedia page,” said Collin Acker, 34, after clicking on a red link bearing Lennon’s name, which directed him to a page indicating that an entry on the iconic songwriter behind “All You Need Is Love” and “Imagine” did not exist but that he could create one.

Yep. I definitely went to his Wiki page after this just to make sure the article wasn’t based in fact. I sort of wonder if there was a bet going on at the Onion “news”room on whether they could get Lennon’s Wiki page to seriously spike in hits.

You win this one, The Onion.

(While this article could/should have been real. But I mean I guess profanity isn’t SCOTUS’s style.)
