Troy’s Armor Auction Imminent

Troy Hurtubise, Ig Nobel winner “for developing, and personally testing a suit of armor that is impervious to grizzly bears,” is going to put that suit — and its successor — up for sale on Ebay. They will go on sale Wednesday, May 5, 2004. Please help spread the word!

These are the same suits that inspired an entire recent episode (“The Fat and the Furriest,” 2004) of “The Simpsons.”
