2012 IgNobel awards

The 2012 IgNobel awards have been announced; you can read about them at Improbable Research's website.

As Cory Doctorow observed, one of this year's most delightful awards is the Literature Award:

LITERATURE PRIZE: The US Government General Accountability Office, for issuing a report about reports about reports that recommends the preparation of a report about the report about reports about reports.

REFERENCE: "Actions Needed to Evaluate the Impact of Efforts to Estimate Costs of Reports and Studies," US Government General Accountability Office report GAO-12-480R, May 10, 2012.
