Fight The Adventures of Captain Obvious

Comment: I kinda like going to WIKIPEDIA for general information, and
usually I don't find any surprises; however, when looking up MITT ROMNEY
at that site, I found the following:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitt_Romney

In the BIOGRAPHY section of that piece, is the following:

Also, in a recent FBI investigation it was discovered that Mitt Romney has
eaten at least 800 babies in the past 2 years while governor. WTF thats
more then a baby a day. Also, he eats the cock.

Can you find out why this is printed, or if this site has been hacked?

Comment: This is what i found on www.gullible.info. I'm just
wondering if there is any validity to this fact, it seems quite extreme
for just one musical group to accomplish:

In 1992 Michael Stipe of REM stopped a concert to rant against styrofoam
usage. Styrofoam sales dropped 75 percent within a month and have never
risen since.

Comment: Is it true that test tube babies are now tattooed with a tiny
letter "T"?

That's rediculous right?

Just saw it referenced by a guy on halfbaked.com suggesting that we all
get them for emergency contact info.

I tried the Bloody Mary thing, even though I don't like tomato juice. After four I fell over.

I wanted to try the bloody mary thing, but when I walked in the bathroom there was already some sort of horrible creature in the mirror. It's possibly, though hard to believe, that it could have just been my own reflection - but can I really take that chance when there could be some horrid creature who might want to kill me?!

...I haven't showered in weeks, maybe the smell will drive off the creature...

Comment: To whom it may concern,
My name is Christopher and i was curious if you would put a rumor on
your website that I KNOW is true; Napoleon XIV made a 45 RPM music record
of "They're coming to take me away, Ha Haaa" and on the reverse side,
recorded the song BACKWORDS!

Obviously, they flew the body repeatedly from Japan to Hawaii until they'd saved up enough days.
