TRUTH !!
Since 1991, Ig Nobel Prize Awards-which are not affiliated with the Nobel Prizes-have been given to those whose work "first makes people laugh, then makes them think."
Award categories vary annually and have included Literature, Economics, Peace, Biology, Art, Nutrition and others.
The 2001 Physics award went to David Schmidt for his "partial solution to the question of why shower curtains billow inwards," the 1999 Literature award went to the British Standards Institution for its "six-page specification of the proper way to make a cup of tea".
