Given out for research that "makes people laugh and then think". My favorite this year is probably the Ig Nobel Peace Prize:

QUOTE
Peace
Stephan Bolliger, a pathologist from the University of Bern in Switzerland accepted the Ig Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of his team for finally solving the long-pondered question of whether being bashed on the head with a full bottle of beer is preferable to being bashed on the head with an empty one.

If you happen to be in a bar brawl, the full bottle is the one to choose because empty ones are sturdier, but both are strong enough to break the human skull, Bolliger said. Full beer bottles are likely to quickly explode because of the pressure built up in the bottle. The study's findings are relevant to court cases in which bottles have been used as weapons.

nobel prizes are about as fucking irrelevent to who matters in the world as the grammies are to who makes the best music.

case in point: Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and *GASP* The Wonder Jesus all received this prize.

Do I even need to say anymore?
