Turkey bans Wikipedia for noting it supported the Islamic State in Syria

Unless you’re a member of the Leftist establishment, Wikipedia is largely worthless for information on contemporary public figures, and its treatment of current events is also often one-sided and contentious. In this case, however, it has run afoul of the Turkish government for including information that government doesn’t want disseminated, in keeping with its longstanding practice of denying it was ever involved in any wrongdoing at all. See, for example, its ongoing denial of the Armenian and Greek Genocides.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
