I love academics

"The 2002 Ig Nobel Prize Winners: The winners have all done things that first make you laugh, then make you think."

My faves include Theo Gray of Wolfram Research, in Champaign, Illinois, for gathering many elements of the periodic table, and assembling them into the form of a four-legged periodic table table and Chris McManus of University College London, for his excruciatingly balanced report, "Scrotal Asymmetry in Man and in Ancient Sculpture."
