Never trust Wikipedia.
A 12-year-old Australian boy made himself the Prime Minister of the country on Wikipedia for two whole days before anybody noticed.
Orley Fenelon has become something of a star since the stunt and told Mashable it's the latest in a long line of pranks he has indulged in with friends, although this one generated the most interest.
"I was just bored and it was a running joke among friends. We came up with the joke of fooling around with the prime minister. Me and a couple of friends were editing Wikipedia pages and it kinda went from there," he said.
"I thought it was just a stupid Internet thing that I would make a joke about, get above average amount of likes on Instagram and just totally forget about forever."
Orley said his parents are "having a great laugh".
