Funny Lebanon

Lebanon in Uncyclopedia and Désencyclopédie

Uncyclopedia and Desencyclopedie (French) are two funny encyclopedias on the net that work much like wikipedia so anyone can edit them to make them funnier and push the definition away from the truth.

Lebanon has an article in both of them. The one in Uncyclopedia is more developed with pictures and more details, the one on Desencyclopedie is smaller but quickly gets to the point. Here are some extract from both of them:


It was is known for general civil unrest. Despite a few dozen wars over the past two decades, Lebanon has a famous reputation of being a very peaceful country which attracts millions of tourists every year for Israelians bomb target practice.

Motto: “Hi, Kifak ca va?”

Religion: Politics

Prominent Lebanese citizens include: Casey Kasem, Alex Rayes, Philippe Bigass, Thierry ‘immature’ Yazbeck, Abu Riad el 3azizeh, Klinger from M.A.S.H. and The Guy who did the voices on Scooby Doo

The issue of Lebanese demographics is very complex and is in fact listed as one of the Hilbert problems (which, incidentally, no one can solve). Lebanesians are Arabs who believe they’re French, which is the reason why they try to speak French.

Half of Lebanons population resides in Broadmeadows, a place in Australia

When you check the original article don’t forget to look at the stuff in the table on the right.


After the little under construction Gif that we used to see in all the website in the 90s with “Pays en reconstruction” next to it, the definition is:

Le Liban un des pays phares de la mondialisation. Tout comme les usines de chaussures ont été délocalisées en Chine et les centres d’appels en Inde, nombre de guerres d’autres pays ont été transportées dans ce petit pays, dont les oliviers, l’Arak, les pistaches et le taboulé en font le cachet et l’originalite que seuls les Libanais sont capable d’exploiter en mettant en oeuvre leur ingéniosité millénaire. Bien dommage quand ils ne le font pas!

The funny thing is that at some points when reading those articles you feel they get closer to the truth more then the articles of Wikipedia.
