Bad Science Awards. 

I guess I don't really have much to say about these. They are funny, though the write-up is so stingy it's hard to get a sense for any of it, and they don't seem as good as the Ig-Nobels. Still though, I do have a favorite quote:

"Shrinking molecules caused some concern among the physicists...[t]he prospect of such equipment being used by hairdressers was deemed worthy of further investigation."
