Smosh’s “Dickipedia” t-shirts are a response to Elon Musk’s comments about Wikipedia

Here’s a great summary from Publish Press:

Earlier this week, Elon Musk decided to take a dig at Wikipedia by making a “Dickipedia” joke on X. The only thing he failed to consider: Dickipedia.com already exists, and it just so happens to be owned by Smosh.

Five years ago, the comedy hub’s partner network, Defy Media, went belly up and liquidated its assets via a sale. Smosh co-founders Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla saw an opportunity to purchase a few domain names owned by Defy—and according to Hecox, there were “a bunch of really gross ones.” Dickipedia.com was one of the URLs on that list.

If it wasn’t for Musk, that domain acquisition may never have amounted to more than a whimsical purchase. But thanks to the X owner’s willingness to bet $1 billion that Wikipedia wouldn’t change its name to Dickipedia, Smosh’s co-founders now have some very desirable merch on their hands.

I am tempted to get one of these shirts, this is so funny. SMOSH is really goat-level trolling.

I remember watching Smosh in the beginning days of youtube, their Pokemon music video will forever be a classic in my opinion, also hilarious.
