Martin Van Buren, Samurai Badass

As an avid Wikipedia editrix, I would never want to encourage any sort of vandalism that detracts from the site's status as a valuable reference tool.

However, my scruples didn't stop me from being driven to hysterics by this subtle change to Wikipedia's "Martin Van Buren" article, which claims that the eighth president studied samurai under Mr. Miyagi.

These edits were up for less than ten minutes, I think - testament to the effectiveness of Wikipedia's self-policing team of editors and moderators. Good job, guys!
