A few of the articles on their list are ones that I have already covered, such as list of animals with fraudulent diplomas (February 8), defecation postures(February 4), and I was fairly certain that I had already linked to File:DefecatingSeagull.jpg at some point, but I guess it was in a draft that didn't get posted. I first came across this article when it was mentioned in this week's issue of the Signpost, the English Wikipedia's community newsletter.
|The "Maccababies" from the Rugrats episode "A Rugrats Chanukah"|
|The coffee mug turns into a torus (donut). So geeky that even I couldn't bring myself to LOL.|
|I suppose I should probably find a weekend to drive down to Fort Bragg and get rid of them, but I don't think I would get enough back to cover the gas I'd spend.|
Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana is a saying used to demonstrate some language phenomena such as word play (pun, double entendre, antanaclasis), syntactic ambiguity, and garden path sentence. In simpler terms, it proves that grammatically correct phrases can be formed in ways that allow more than one reasonable interpretation; and can be constructed in a way to be misleading without being wrong. It took me a few minutes to get all of the meanings: in that time goes by quickly, a command to record the speed of an insect, that fruit does not fly aerodynamically, and that insects enjoy bananas.
Zoophilia and health... OK, really? Bad enough that the article exists, but it's worse that they had references. Seriously, who the hell does medical research on bestiality?
My surprise at handkerchief code is not so much that the article exists, but that the code exists. And the fact that the list of codes is so extensive is a bit unnerving as well.
Death erection refers to boners after death, not death by boner. It seems like a legitimate medical topic to me, albeit a bit of a strange curiosity, and there is sufficient medical research into this anomaly to justify the article.
Kite Eating Tree seems like an easy merge and redirect to the article on Peanuts to me, especially since it lacks references. This fancruft speculates that the "character" might move after eating Charlie Brown's kites because there is no evidence of the "bones" (stick frames) it spits out when it's done. Good Grief!
Fictional last words in webcomics and Fictional last words in video games are entries on WikiQuote, not Wikipedia. Their whole mission is to transcribe stuff like this, so it's not that odd.
There is a lengthy quote from list of things which are neither production nor consumption, which redirects to anthropological theories of value, but the quote is itself a quote from David Graeber.
The article phantom kangaroo is iffy. Ghost stories aren't really to be taken seriously, but the fact that reports get published lends some import, not to mention that they tend to crop up in places where you'd never see a kangaroo.
|The sign is kinda funny, and harkens back to the paradoxy entry I made last month.|
Cow blowing: a method of increasing milk production (by blowing air over a cow's vagina) so obscure that even third world nations don't do it anymore.
This entry isn't at all a joke: mirror test. It's a legitimate and well-accepted psychology test that measures an animal's self-awareness by seeing if they can recognize themselves in a mirror. In fact, it's such a common cognitive marker that psychologists refer to the mirror stage in the development of human babies.
CamelCase isn't that odd, but it's funny that the title is written in camel case. Another language article, glossary of fan fiction terms isn't that odd in and of itself, though some of the entries are funny.
Involuntary celibacy is sad, but there isn't anything interesting about it unless you are a sexologist, psychologist, or sociologist. Same goes with File:Rejection.jpg, which I think was staged just for use in the article.
Well, there you have it: some of it makes sense, some of it doesn't. Happy reading!
