The hilarious second installment of the popular humor series honoring the world’s most improbable actual research
The first volume of The Ig Nobel Prizes was celebrated as a "brainy bacchanalian" (USA Today) and "so funny you couldn’t make it up" (The Washington Post). Now, the "guru of scientific satire" (Publishers Weekly), Marc Abrahams, returns with The Ig Nobel Prizes 2, a fresh compendium of all- new unbelievable-but-true accomplishments in the sciences, arts, and humanities.
Born from the annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony at Harvard University, The Ig Nobel Prizes 2 demonstrates the incredible lengths to which people will go in the pursuit of knowledge. Winners of this prestigious award include:
-The scientists who discovered that chickens prefer beautiful humans
-The Norwegian research team that documented the impact of wearing wet underwear in the cold
-The entire nation of Liechtenstein, which rents itself out for weddings, bar mitzvahs, or other gatherings.
Featuring anecdotes from the 2004 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony and a zany collection of all new achievements, The Ig Nobel Prizes 2 is perfect for anyone who first wants to laugh and then wants to think.About the Author:
