For some reason unknown even to myself, I subscribe to the Statistics Canada RSS feed. This is syndication at its most mind-numbingly boring: recent gems include "Cereals and Oilseeds Review, January 2008" and "Stocks of Frozen Poultry, March 2008". But here's a classic from today: Crushing Statistics, February 2008.
Crushing statistics? What, is it data about how many people in Canada are morbidly depressed, or some linear regression detailing the ultimate futility of all human endeavour? Well, no. Actually, it's about how many tonnes of oilseed and grains were ground up in February. But you've got to admit, the headline leads you to expect a bit more drama than the processing of meal. Crushing, indeed.
