An Almost Meta-post - A Short List of Lists

The Morning News recently linked to a couple of top tens. Both of them made me smile.

First came ten bathroom placards for the uncommonly stupid. There actually some good advice here. The first pic might need a little punctuation, but it's definately on message, where as the poster that states "If at first you don't succeed... Keep flushing!" ought to be made in to one of those motivational posters.

The second list was 10 Most Bizarre Scientific Papers, now these things are either silly or prurient, and this list manages a bit of both — "Rectal Foreign Bodies: Case Reports and a Comprehensive Review of the World's Literature", indeed. It also has a few gems in it. The infographic for "Pressures Produced When Penguins Poo -- Calculations on Avian Defecation" alone makes it worth linking to.
