Day 26 – What is the oddest (or funniest) thing you've had to research for a fic?

Er. Um. Er. *Scratches head* *Wanders off to peruse website*

Hmmm, I'm not sure I have actually researched anything 'odd' or 'funny'. I have done a fair bit of research over the years, in particular for Ducky's 'educating' stories, but none of them were really odd or particularly funny.

As I'm a Brit, does researching baseball count? I did that via murgy31 (who was incredibly helpful) for my story Magic In The Air. (A Gibbs/Ducky team story).

I researched the Vietnam War for Story Of A Story, but again I wouldn't call that 'odd'. (Gibbs/Ducky).

Challenging Ducky probably led to the most amusement in one lot of research as it involved dipping into The Book Of General Ignorance, which is a great book, a lot of fun as well as being somewhat sobering when you realise quite how 'ignorant' you are. (A Gibbs/Ducky team story).

But I wouldn't say any of those fitted.
