Satire website Uncyclopedia, a parody of encyclopedia online Wikipedia, was labeled by the Malaysian government as dangerous. The Department of Homeland Security of Malaysia issued this warning today, stating that the site contained "messages and information insulting Malaysia".

The warning indicates that the date of creation of the website was 5 January 2005 and is hosted by Wikia, Inc.both are correct. However, he claims that Wikia owns Wikipedia; Wikipedia is a non-profit charitable site belonging to the non-profit organization Wikimedia Foundation, while Wikia is an independent, for-profit corporation.

The report mentions, of course, that the encyclopedia covers "history, culture, political leaders, government, the national song and the name / history of the Malaysian national flag", none of which is "correct". blame the website for helping to strengthen a poor international image of their country.

There has been no reported blocking of access to the site in the country, but only this statement that urges Malaysians not to broadcast the content.

The Uncyclopedia article on Malaysia begins:

<p>The penis of Asia, located north of their cousins ​​living on an even smaller island, Singapore, is also a young nation of diverse cultures and breeds, such as F1 Formula-1 and NASCAR. Malaysia's time zone is unique because it follows the system of + 1 / + 2 PMT (predetermined meeting time) which is 1 or 2 hours later than PMT. Most foreigners find it hard to adapt to this new time zone because they tend to run one to two hours earlier than their local counterparts. The nation is moving forward with the vision of becoming a developed nation by the year 2020, 3030, 4040 or whatever.</p>

Another common state to Malaysians is denial (no lah, where is it?), Which is also a river in Egypt.

<p>The site was returned with a parody article posted on the site in the UnNews section, entitled <a target=The Department of Homeland Security of the Uncyclopedia warns against Malaysia. The article suggests that the "Department of Homeland Security Foundation Uncyclomedia", which is a facetious and fictitious parent organization, identifies Malaysia "as a dangerous country … It warned its inhabitants not to use the country today ".

There are forty-seven different language editions of Uncyclopedia, including Tolololpedia, which is written in Bahasa melayu, the Malay language. This is in addition to fictitious "language" editions that include Oscar Wilde, Newspeak, n00b, White supremacist, and Re: PharmaccgRy.
