News from the Fish Bowl: Museum of Bad Art Leading Ig Nobel Winners

I realize I haven't posted news lately, but I just found out that the Museum of Bad Art, renowned for displaying artworks that went horribly wrong either in conception or execution, will be parading bad art into the Sanders Theater at Harvard as part of the annual Ig Nobel Prizes, which honor bizarre scientific studies. The Ig Nobel Prize ceremony will take place on October 2nd.

Last year's Ig Nobels include an award in medicine to Brian Witcombe of Gloucester, UK, and Dan Meyer of Antioch, Tennessee, for "Sword Swallowing and Its Side Effects." This year's will presumably feature equally odd projects.
