Links That Go to the Wrong Page of the Site They're On
As the name implies, some links go to a misleading page of the site they're on. These are fairly common on Uncyclopedia, but even more so in Encyclopedia Dramatica, where satirical authors enjoy misleading their readers with links that may go from "Paris Hilton" to "butthurt." Only a truly sophisticated mind can comprehend the subtlety involved in such humor. A few subcategories:
- Pages where links redirect to clever references to the current article.
- Pages where links go to the opposite of what they imply they go to.
- Pages where the links don't really go anywhere at all.
- Pages where the destination of the link is irrelevant and makes absolutely no sense.
