Woof, Quack (Ig)

Kees Moeliker, who won the 2003 Ig Nobel Biology Prize for documenting the first scientifically recorded case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck, published a photo-rich diary of his Ig experience. See it here.

Aline McKenzie of the Dallas Morning News personally tested Bow-Lingual, the automatic dog-to-human-language translation device, the inventors of which received the 2002 Ig Nobel Peace Prize. She also discussed it with a scientist named Beaver. Read her account here (a free registration to that newspaper’s web site is required).
