Not even close. Try this one:
Affect, culture, and morality, or is it wrong to eat your dog?

Cited in every paper I can possibly work it into.

Uh, I'm an idiot. Do I get a pass since it was just over a year ago?

There's a lot of great stuff on NCBI ROFL, if you haven't seen that before.

Abstract wrote:As with many interventions intended to prevent ill health, the effectiveness of parachutes has not been subjected to rigorous evaluation by using randomised controlled trials. Advocates of evidence based medicine have criticised the adoption of interventions evaluated by using only observational data. We think that everyone might benefit if the most radical protagonists of evidence based medicine organised and participated in a double blind, randomised, placebo controlled, crossover trial of the parachute.

That's beautiful.

Another one:
Don’t want to show fellow students my naughty bits: medical students’ anxieties about peer examination of intimate body regions at six schools across UK, Australasia and Far-East Asia.

The first sentence of the abstract reads: "Although recent quantitative research suggests that medical students are reluctant to engage in peer physical examination (PPE) of intimate body regions, we do not know why."
