A Wikipedian self-referentiality

Some of you may be aware of an entry in my Rock’n’Roll History of the World feature here that talks about space monkeys (or more accurately, monkeys sent into space from Earth). For some years now, this has been an entry that was inexplicably popular on the site, certainly compared to most other entries in the same feature.

I have sometimes wondered why, being fairly sure that there just weren’t that many “Fight Club” fans – or fans of “We Didn’t Start The Fire”, for that matter. But today I finally solved the mystery.

It turns out that the Wikipedia page that I used to generate all of the information about space monkeys now cites my page as a reference.

They’ve really got to do something about standards over there.
