The BJAODN wiki is the final resting place for all of the 'Bad Jokes And Other Deleted Nonsense' which have been removed from the English Wikipedia.
This website was created from one of the oldest pages on Wikipedia (and added on to, as well). Seriously, the page existed before the transition to phase II software, possibly before the Internets were even invented. Here is the original explanation:
"We need a page where bad jokes and other deleted nonsense can rest in peace. So, here it is! I'm half tempted to suggest keeping the jokes in-line with the pages, as they must sorta give the encyclopaedia some lively colour. But I do know it'd just get carried away and turn into an encyclopaedia of silliness, so look forward to frequent updates of this page. ;-)"
Bad jokes are never kept on Wikipedia under the guise of real encyclopedia articles. Occasionally Wikipedians lose their mind (especially on April Fool's Day) and if their posts are good they wind up here. Silliness can come in the form of creativity, insanity, or just boredom. Often it seems a shame to delete the best of this humor which has been submitted to us under the GFDL, and thus this page continues on and on.
