    Code:
    javascript:$('#mw-sopaOverlay').hide();$('#footer,#content,#mw-head,#mw-panel,#mw-head-base,#mw-page-base').show();void(0);
    Navigate to the blacked out Wikipedia page. Copy the code above. Now:

    For Opera / Safari / IE6 / IE7: Paste the code into the address bar and hit ENTER

    For Chrome / IE8 / IE9: Make sure the code starts with javascript:

    For Firefox: Press SHIFT+F4, CTRL+A, paste (CTRL+V) and press CTRL+R

    Good luck.

    Just view the cached version at Google. There's a cached link to the right.

    I came across this situation today...all i did was right click>view page source and copied the content to a notepad...then saved it as .html

    May be not simple as other methods her...but it works.
