John Harrington's Wickie Article

Wickie is a parody of Wikipedia, a popular, open-sourced online encyclopedia. Wickie first appeared in "Reverse Cowgirl", where it was used to look up information on Sir John Harington, a writer as well as the inventor of the flush toilet.

The layout of Wickie is similar to Wikipedia, and other MediaWiki sites; it consists of an infobox with data, similar left-hand navigation, editable sections, and very similar top-page navigation.


  • The text and image used in Harrington's Wickie article does not appear to be taken from Wikipedia.
  • Sir John Harington's name was misspelled "Harrington" on his Wickie article.
