Citation Needed 2 The Needening

“It is also possible for a pinky swear to exist between 3 parties, known as a 3-way pinky promise. A pinky swear between 4 or more people is relatively unknown.”

“A pinky swear involving five or more people is known as a “pinky rat king” and has been rumoured to snap off the hands of the swearers and skitter horribly across the floor.”

This is the second collection of examples of terrible writing from the Wikipedia by Conor Lastowka, writer for RiffTrax and MST3K and Josh Fruhlinger of the Comics Curmudgeon blog, including a foreword by Mike Nelson, also from RiffTrax and MST3K. I enjoyed the first book and this one is just as much fun, for the sheer inanity of some of the information and the so-bad-it's-good writing. Each terrible Wikipedia excerpt is accompanied by snarky comments from the book's authors, some of which are laugh out loud funny.

[Citation Needed] 2 is a quick, funny read, good for dipping into during breaks at work or on public transport. At just 99 cents for the Kindle edition you can't really go wrong.
