[Citation Needed] ist ein neues Buch über die schlimmsten Formulierungen auf Wikipedia und auch wenn ich glaube, dass das Buch insgesamt nicht allzuviel hergibt, an ein paar Stellen im Preview-PDF musste ich doch sehr lachen.

General Mills monster-themed breakfast cereals - Franken Berry was very popular when first introduced possibly because the initial batches of the cereal used a dye that didn’t break down in the body, causing many children’s feces to be bright pink, a symptom sometimes referred to as “Frankenberry Stool.”

Punxsutawney Phil - During the rest of the year, Phil lives in the town library with his “wife” Phyllis.

Fuzzy Wuzzy - Fuzzy-Wuzzy can refer to: Fuzzy Wuzzy (poem), a popular children’s poem/tongue-twister in which a bear is thought to be fuzzy, but it turns out he’s not

Friday (Rebecca Black song) - “Friday” co-writer Patrice Wilson explained that “I wrote the lyrics on a Thursday night going into a Friday. I was writing different songs all night and was like, ‘Wow, I’ve been up a long time and it’s Friday.’ And I was like, wow, it is Friday!”

Da Vinci’s Notebook - Enormous Penis is often wrongly assumed to be a Frank Zappa song.
