Dickipedia. Not quite Encylopedia Dramatica, but .... something. No open editing, thank goodness.

It's not very funny. Not surprising, considering HuffPo is the creator of it.

Yeah, what do they think they're doing? I guess I figured once they'd been bought by AOL, they'd focus more on the older 'n' richer crowd, you know, people who don't read the details on their monthly credit card statements.

And why are they saying that Santa Claus is a dick? I mean, sure, he's not always Mister Wonderful, but this just looks like the work of someone who suffered one too many coal-in-the-stocking incidents.

For starters, there is no entry for Dick Morris -- major oversight. They do, however, have an entry for George Stephanopoulos, but unfortunately it isn't funny.

And instead they have Al Franken, who only plays a dick on TV (unless you're a right-wing sort of person, and you believe everything you see on TV).

What's telling, for now at least, is that they only have four "Business Dicks" - or five if you include Mark Zuckerberg (listed under "Media Dicks"), but it's really four, because Donald Trump should be listed under "Miscellaneous Dicks" since he qualifies for nearly all the other categories too. Or else they should give Trump his own category, the heading for which would simply be "Donald Trump." Alternatively, they could do what Spy Magazine did and assign TrumpScores™ to all the other "dicks" based on the extent of their relationship(s) to Trump.

a) I discovered Dickipedia back in 2007, and posted it on Metafilter. (As usual, those twits failed to appreciate it.)

b) plus, I had assumed the people doing DP would keep adding to it. Because there's an endless supply. (Of dicks.)

But it appears to have become a dead site, sadly. I'd submit it to Ghost Sites, but he too appears to have given up.

Palin is apparently governor of Alaska.
