A number of unusual achievements have been honoured with this year's Ig Nobel prize including a designer who invented a bra that turns in to a gas mask and a team that found that named cows produce more milk.
Designers of a bra that turns into gas masks and a team who found that named cows produce more milk were among the winners of the 2009 Ig Nobel prizes. The aim of the awards is to honour achievements that "first make people laugh and then make them think".

Past winners also returned to take part in the celebrations. They included Kees Moeliker, the discoverer of homosexual ********** in the mallard duck, and Dr Francis Fesmire, who devised the digital rectal massage as cure for intractable hiccups. Oh my!!

I want one of those bras. If there is an emergency like "Swine flu" you can take your bra off without taking your shirt off and you have a gas mask. It will also help for those times you are intimate with a smelly bloke.
