Maybe they thought it was 267,153 kangaroos

Federico Girosi, Associate Professor in Population Health at the School of Medicine, University of Western Sydney, posted the following story on Facebook:

We just submitted a paper to BMC Public Health. This was their reply:

"Thank you for your recent submission of the manuscript "People with multiple unhealthy lifestyles are less likely to consult primary healthcare. Evidence from 267,153 Australians". We have now looked over your manuscript and we feel that it is out of scope for the journal. However, we do feel that the manuscript may be suited for another of our journals, BMC Veterinary Research."
