The Ig Nobel Prizes
Have you ever heard of the Ig Nobel Prizes? Hilarious! They were originally established back in 1991 as a parody of the Nobel Prizes. They set out to nominate global achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think. Some of the winners this year include: Determining what alligators sound like when they breathe in helium-enriched air; or whether knives fashioned out of frozen feces constitute a viable cutting tool. The global winners each receive a Zimbabwean 10-trillion dollar (which is worth around 40US cents). I can near-guarantee that you will marvel at the creativity of the winners.
