Polyester trousers are bad for the male sex drive!

Well its that time of year again and the IgNobels have been announced. My favorites have to be the Being a Beast, which took a joint Biology IgNobel for a guy who lived as a Badger and another guy who dressed as an Alpine goat for three days.

And the peace prize titled this: "On the Reception and Detection of Pseudo-Profound Bullshit"

More importantly guys, its not that girls don't dig polyester pants, but that you wont feel that sexy wearing them.

In my excitement I forgot the link: http://www.improbable.com/ig/winners/#ig2016
