Amusingly Weird Gems Found in the Depths of Wikipedia

We don't have to tell anyone that Wikipedia is an invaluable wealth of interesting information and historical facts. But have you ever gone down a deep Wiki k-hole? It's like diving down to the ocean floor and discovering creatures of the unknown. For example, did you know 'Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo' is a grammatically correct sentence? 

Maybe you're already well-versed in all the bizarre factoids Wikipedia has to offer, but it's impossible to notice all the funny little idiosyncrasies and details that make the site special. It's fun to imagine future humans studying Wikipedia and finding the entry for 'Naruto run.' You're in for a treat because we've collected a bunch of strange findings from one of our favorite internet archivists, @depthsofwiki. Eat your heart out, Britannica.
