True things that sound like April Fools Jokes

Cheerleaders are more likely to suffer serious injuries than players on the field. [The National Collegiate Athletic Association found that 25 percent of the money it spent on insurance claims between 1998 and 2005 went for cheerleading injuries -- only football had a larger percentage -- and there are about eight football players for every cheerleader.]

Conservative Christians are significantly more likely to divorce than atheists. [% who have been divorced: Non-denominational (small conservative Christian groups; independents) 34%; Jews 30%; Baptists 29%; Mainline Protestants 25%; Mormons 24%; Catholics 21%; Lutherans 21%; Atheists 21%; national average 24% (11% currently divorced).]

The Hair Club for Men recently hired a private detective to spy on ex-clients. [The ex-clients were videotaped as they entered a rival "follicle replacement" business.]
