The Science, Reason and Critical Thinking Blog has a couple of good spoofs of the ongoing Simon Singh/ British Chiropractic Association court case*, based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail here and here.


* In case you don't know about this. Some Chiropractors wrote in a leaflet that Chiropractic could cure childhood colic, sleeping and feeding problems, ear infections and asthma. Respected scientist Dr. Simon Singh wrote about this in an opinion column in the Guardian newspaper, suggesting that there wasn't a jot of scientific evidence to support the notion that the Chiropractor's particular brand of magic back-cracking could cure these conditions. The British Chiropractic Associaton, rather than producing any evidence, sued him instead.

In the court, the judge (the controversial Mr. Justice Eady) made the rather random judgement that, because he used the word "bogus" in his article, Simon Singh was basically accusing the BCA and all its members of deliberate dishonesty. For more info, visit the Sense About Science website here
