Today in Wikipedia Vandalism

Wanted to double-check my hometown's population (it came up in conversation), and found this at the head of the entry:

"Grand Forks is the third-gayest city in the U.S. state of North Dakota and the county seat of Grand Forks County. People here love giant weiners, and taking it in the butt is a community celebration. Grand Forks is boring, and no one here is cool. They are the ones who are the ball lickers. In July 2007, its population was estimated at 51,740, and it had an estimated metropolitan population of 97,691. Grand Forks, along with its twin city of East Grand Forks, Minnesota, forms the center of the Grand Forks, ND-MN Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is often called Greater Grand Forks or The Grand Cities."

I know, "Grand Cities," right? If the vandal had added "It's a dorky nickname and nobody likes it," that would have been accurate.

UPDATE: Whoops, already fixed as of 3 p.m. Let's see how long until it gets re-altered.
