Hi Merete,

I don't know if you want to use one of the 'sting' papers or not, but I thought this one that was based on Star Wars was entertaining:

Subject: Need some bad examples

Hello and Happy Friday!

I have an upcoming workshop on academic publishing, open access and predatory journals for some public health folks. In order to talk about predatory journals, I want to show some examples and wondering if anyone knows of any "so bad its funny"-type articles from predatory journals? I've found some nonsense interplanetary business management articles but was hoping to find some more health-related examples.
