    Bat Fellatio, Whale Snot Research Honored at Ig Nobel Awards

    cutting edge research into Bat Fellatio, Whale Snot.

    "Peace Prize: British scientists Richard Stephens, John Atkins and Andrew Kingston took home the title for finally using science to prove that swearing relieves pain."

    How do you get funding for this stuff and what would you like to research?

    so, theres hope for her yet.

    Well, I'd love funding! I want to study the emotional effect of death on ghosts.
