Schott's, 2008

Two favourite finds from the 60 pages of Schott's Almanac 2008 that I've managed so far:
PROSTITOTS
Children who are dressed in sexually inappropriate clothing.

     —"Words of the Year" section, p. 12

…and, in the completely-squicking-me-out category:
In an attempt to break the world record, Brazilian Claudio Paulo Pinto stretched his eyeballs 0.3" out of their sockets (sadly, he failed; the world record is 0.43").

     —"Significa · 2007" section, p. 15
