Wikipedia has arrived...

Apparently some have taken Mr. Colbert's recommendations to heart, as Wikipedia's "elephant" entry has been locked:

This page has been temporarily protected from editing to deal with vandalism.


On 31 July 2006 popular celebrity and show host Stephen Colbert prompted viewers to change the Wikipedia page on the Elephant to say that the African Elephant population has tripled in the last 3 months, as part of his The Word segment on The Colbert Report about Wikiality. While this is untrue, several attempts were made to change the page.
