The[edit]

This entire article is just a paraphrasing of the Straight Dope article found at the included link. Just thought someone reading it should know. 24.128.68.185 01:27, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

The above comment now only applies to the USA section. I have not used that reference at all for the UK section I have now added

Just looked at the link and I would say the OPs comment is entirely unfair. The original article is in the form of conversational questions and answers with lots of personal reminiscing rambling, nothing like the wiki article.

Slate[edit]

http://www.slate.com/id/2234903/ (06 Nov 2009) seems very similar to the US section of this article. It's not attributed, and it's possible that the writer derived his information from the same sources, but I thought I'd leave a note here so that no one later thought that Wikipedia had copied the Slate article.
