How about a "strange but true" brain-off.

For example:

Did you know that David Rice Atchinson was President of the United States for exactly one day.

Or

In 1990 a 64-year old Tennessee, woman was admited to a hospital for surgery, for what doctors diagnosed as a tumor on her buttocks. What they found however was a four-inch pork chop bone, which they removed. They estimated that it had been there for five to ten years...

Quite how you would phrase that im not sure!
