Kansas is flatter than a pancake. No, seriously, these folks did a test.

I love the Annals of Improbable Research. They take the time to explain things like:

Some readers may find the comparing of a pancake and Kansas to be analogous to the comparing of apples and oranges; we refer those readers to a 1995 publication by NASA’s Scott Sandford, who used spectrographic techniques to do a comparison of apples and oranges.
