Mary Pat Harnegie sent us a list of funny/strange requests that she has compiled as a medical librarian. You will see some of them attached below, and we would like to expand the topic into a regular column highlighting the Strange But True questions received by Midwest MLA Librarians. We’ll be including a few questions in each issue. Please send us your Strange But True (or just flat-out funny) questions that you receive as a medical librarian! McFadden.Joyce@mayo.edu
- What is the chemical composition of flatulence?
- Can you treat headaches with belladonna?
- How to do homework without throwing up? (And yes, there is actually a book by that title.)
- What is the effect of a full moon on hospital admissions?
- Ice cream headaches.
