Other winners included work on treating hamster jetlag with impotency drugs, extracting vanilla from cow dung, and the side-effects of sword swallowing. The awards, founded in 1991, mark achievements that "first make people laugh, and then make them think". The prize ceremony took place at Harvard University, US. Genuine Nobel Laureates handed out the much-coveted awards to the winners, who took away no cash, but instead received a hand-made prize, a certificate, and, of course, the glory of such an illustrious win. Sword effects: Dan Meyer, executive director of Sword Swallowing Association International and an author of the British Medical Journal paper Sword Swallowing and its Side-Effects, said: "I was surprised and extremely honoured when I found out I was not only nominated for an Ig Nobel prize but that I had won it. I couldn't believe it." He told the BBC News website that the study revealed that when professional sword swallowers ingested a single sword very carefully, it did not do much harm, but swallowing many swords, strangely shaped blades, or being distracted when swallowing, could cause injury. The findings also suggested that sword swallowers should not swallow swords if they already had a sore throat, he said. Unfortunately, said the organisers, nobody from the US military who carried out the research on chemicals that could prompt homosexual dalliances amongst rival troops (a research project called Harassing, Annoying and "Bad Guy" Identifying Chemicals) attended the ceremony because the study's authors could not be tracked down.

Real research: The Ig Nobel Prizes were created by the Annals of Improbable Research (AIR), a science magazine. The Ig Nobels celebrate the unusual side of research The awards, now in their 17th year, are intended to "celebrate the unusual, honour the imaginative - and spur people's interest in science, medicine and technology".

I saw a comedian years ago, talking about the prospect of letting gays serve in the U.S. military.

He had a great line:

"But captain, I couldn't shoot him! He was GORGEOUS!"

They need to drop Maxwell Smarts Nude Bomb at the same time.

Bloody hell, do it right.

If they ever drop this, I hope we are at war with Gaddafi.

Well, at least having people to make out with each other instead of killing each other would seem to be less destructive...
