Neuticles inventor takes home IgNobel Prize. They're prosthetic dog testicles.....remember?

Sort of like Darwin awards but for the elite....and the Dead Clic.....

This year's other Ig Nobel winners include:



• PHYSICS: Since 1927, researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia have been tracking a glob of congealed black tar as it drips through a funnel — at a rate of one drop every nine years.



• PEACE: Two researchers at Newcastle University in England monitored the brain activity of locusts as they watched clips from the movie "Star Wars."



• CHEMISTRY: An experiment at the University of Minnesota was designed to prove whether people can swim faster or slower in syrup than in water.



The Ig Nobel for literature went to the Nigerians who introduced millions of e-mail users to a "cast of rich characters ... each of whom requires just a small amount of expense money so as to obtain access to the great wealth to which they are entitled."

Not like Darwin awards at all; these are people who have invented/researched something whose usefulness is questionable. Like the guy who made the bear armored suit, although I thought that was pretty cool.
