Jimmy Wales Mistaken for Julian Assange

Jimmy Wales mistaken for Julian Assange by immigration officials? At first I was like "but they don't look anything alike" and then I realized it was because of the Wikipedia / Wikileaks names. wink

UK immigration officials thought they had caught the infamous Julian Assange bail jumping earlier this year. Officials were absolutely stunned when a bloke showed up at a UK airport claiming to be the CEO of Wikipedia. To the surprised officials, this would have meant that Assange, in a desperate bid to avoid a court appearance in Sweden on charges of being the world's worst date, managed to board a plane in the US without a passport.
