2009 Ig Nobel Prize, designed and hand-built by Eric Workman
Mere days after the strange and terrifying and groin-grabbingly excellent Ig Nobel awards ceremony, we have received a distressing update: some nefarious Enemy of Fun has swiped an Ig Nobel! The Improbable Research folks posted this Tuesday:
Tonight's Ig Nobel ceremony,
a festival of dubious achievements in the realm of science, may be nigh
sold out (as of yesterday, all but a few "imperfect view" seats had
already been snatched up). But you can still catch all the glorious,
uproarious, tonque-in-cheek geekery tonight -- from the comfort of your
living room, no less.
