The strange thing is, these articles appear to be (intended to be) completely serious!

But never fear, they may be wrong anyway, as we hear from the (thankfully!) inimitable Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

New study: 16% of studies contradicted by studies

Yeah, right. Remember the joke, “78.3% of all statistics are made up”? Well, this is just like that — only it’s not intended as a joke!
