A Wikied take on Smugness

If Wikipedia feels a little low brow, then it’s time to check out smugopedia.

Smugopoedia eschews comprehensiveness in favour of “the chance to buy a fleeting sense of self-satisfaction at the small cost of alienating your friends and loved ones”. Essentially it’s your next dinner party bon mot about subjects you know nothing about.

The site gives you this learned opinion on Shakespeare, for example, “Although King Lear is rivaled perhaps only by Hamlet, I tend to agree with critic Charles Lamb’s observation that it ought to be read, not performed.” It saves it’s wittiest wallop for the web encyclopedia “Wikipedia tends to be strong on the subjects that don’t matter.” If that doesn’t sound smart enough you can always submit your own Smuggie.
