Uncyclopedia - IIT and juvenile humour

The IIT post on Uncyclopedia is undergoing churn.
The version I checked in the morning had:
"...When entering the IIT, a guy has two options. The first is to take up the common learning route described above. Since IIT-JEE makes sure a lot of mavericks are selected, many of them also end up being happy among themselves. The girls in IITs, measured as parts of girl per million parts of guy, have to struggle keeping their identity as girl secret throughout their stay in IITs. Sometimes they are forced to tell the truth, like when a gay IITian proposes mistaking them for a guy...
It also had sections on Education, besides the above-mentioned example of Life and Culture. Now, unfortunately, there's an antisceptic version, though the digs on Oscar Wilde remain. Do read.

While you are there, do browse through some of the Uncyclopedia. Unfortunately, some of humour is quite juvenile, potty-related or simply sad. As can be expected of an online community-edited attempt at parody. Check out India, for example.

However, the good news is that you can create your vanity page easily. So, go.

The IIT bashin bandwagon rumbles along.

dude, the earlier comment is such a crappy attempt at an ad. Chirpy, american friendliness under the thin veneer of profit seeking motive.

Monica, the queer was quite unfunny, yes. Not even a single good joke. Except for Pluto.
