Help with Research Needed

I'm doing research for a ghost-writing gig I have now for the Web site SmashingLists.com. I'm putting together a few lists and could use suggestions for them:

1. Top 10 Most Surprising Banned Books
2. Top 10 Words That Sound Dirty But Aren't
3. Top 10 Most Unusual U.S. Town Names
4. Top 10 Funniest Looking Pets
5. Top 10 Amazing Sculptures Made from Unusual Items
6. Top 10 Geekiest Places to Visit in the U.S.
7. Top 10 Unusual Instruments in Popular Music

If you have suggestions for any of these lists, please share them!

'American Idol' Recap: Motor City Week Claims Crooner

My recap for this week is now online:

'American Idol' Recap: Motor City Week Claims Crooner

If you'd like to see videos of the performances, go to the official "American Idol" site's performance videos page. Since some performances (such as from guest artists on results nights) don't appear on the official site, I also highly recommend Human Slinky's video channel on DailyMotion.com. One caveat: because these videos are not on the official "American Idol" site, I have no idea how long they'll remain online.
