Wikipedia sentience

Here’s an experiment: search Wikipedia for the title of a blog post, and, if the first search result gives a page with an unambiguous opening sentence, remove citations and anything in parentheses, prepend “But” and add as a comment.

Examples:

His Dark Materials
But His Dark Materials, a trilogy of fantasy novels by Philip Pullman, comprises Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.
