This page, Policy, discusses an official policy of Wikiality.com. We treat it like we would treat a decree from Our Glorious Stephen himself. Because it is so rich in gut-issued, truth-filled wikiality, this policy on Policy has wide acceptance among members of Wikiality.com and is considered a standard that all users should follow. By following these standards, we are working to create a reality where each user's truthiness reflects the truthiness of Stephen.

Blank a page? That's a bannin'



Wikiality.com is an internets tube dedicated to Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A. and his creation, "truthiness".

There are people who do not quite understand the entirety of truthiness.

All content on Wikiality.com exists solely for the glorification of Stephen.

What is Satire?

Wikiality.com is satire.

Satire is not as obvious as something like physical comedy. When a satirist says something about Bono it is not to poke fun at Bono, but rather the people who seriously hate Bono. When a satirist says Bono is a pussy (or some other lame insult) is it to show how lame the people who really call Bono a pussy actually are. How lame can a person be to simply call another person a "pussy"? In other words, "Is that all you got?" Satire is hard to write, because few people really understand it.

From Malaspina College:

"...satire is "A composition in verse or prose holding up vice or folly to ridicule or lampooning individuals. . . . The use of ridicule, irony, sarcasm, etc., in speech or writing for the ostensible purpose of exposing and discourage vice or folly."(...) If we see someone or some group acting in a way we think is morally unacceptable and we wish to correct such behaviour, we have a number of options. We can try to force them to change their ways (through threats of punishment); we can deliver stern moral lectures, seeking to persuade them to change their ways; we can try the Socratic approach of engaging them in a conversation which probes the roots of their beliefs; or, alternatively, we can encourage everyone to see them as ridiculous, to laugh at them, to render them objects of scorn for the group. In doing so we will probably have at least two purposes in mind: first, to effect some changes in the behaviour of the target (so that he or she reforms) and, second, to encourage others not to behave in such a manner.
