Spurious regressions

I saw saw this one-pager on spurious regressions and I thought some of you might appreciate it.

My favourite is the first one:

Regression: Egyptian infant mortality rate (Y), 1971-1990, annual data, on Gross aggregate income of American farmers (I) and Total Honduran money supply (M)

Result:  R-squared = .918
