…of Exploding Sperm and Stale Chips

People with way too much time on their hands….

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A researcher who figured out that Coke explodes sperm and scientists who discovered that people will happily eat stale chips if they crunch loudly enough won alternative “Ig Nobel” prizes Thursday.

Other winners included physicists who found out that anything that can tangle, will tangle and a team of biologists who ascertained that dog fleas jump farther than cat fleas.

The Ig Nobels honor real research, but are meant as a funny alternative to next week’s deadly serious Nobel prizes for medicine, chemistry, physics, economics, literature and peace.
