the Ig Nobel Prizes

From World...

Bona fide Nobel Laureates will be on hand at Harvard University on Sept. 30 to hand out the Ig Nobel Prizes, a mock award created by the [20-year old] scientific humor periodical Annals of Improbable Research.

Two of last year's winners:

a research team that studied whether it is more harmful to be struck in the head with a full or empty beer bottle...[and a researcher] who concluded that bacteria found only in the feces of giant pandas could reduce kitchen waste by 90 percent.
