Colleague, I looked at the Dec 18-25, 1999 issue of BMJ. Vol. 319 (7225) for the article on alternatives to evidence based medicine, and got a laugh. What I thought would be serious research is tongue in cheek "reality check." Then, I started looking through the issue. It is full of humorous article titles, puns, and strange (if not bizarre) articles that at the same time are informative. If you ever need some humor in publication, this is an issue to keep in mind. I suspect BMJ was giving us a Christmas gift of sorts.
