And Finally

MC Chiddy and the problem with Wikipedia

Philadelphia-based hip hop duo Chiddy Bang last week told Aussie radio station Triple J about one of the down sides of having a good online presence back home where the legal drinking age is still 21.

Twenty year old MC Chiddy told the station: “We did a show with Big Boi from Outkast in Chicago and, what happens is a lot of times I’ll DJ the afterparty. The dude who’s running the event just came over and he’s like, ‘Listen, we’ve just had a look on Wikipedia and you’re not 21, you’re going to have to leave’. They looked up Wikipedia on us! And we’re like, are you serious we just did this whole DJ set for you!”

No such problems down-under, of course, where not only is the legal drinking age eighteen but, I mean, has the internet even reached Australia yet?
