Beetle's beer bottle sex wins Ig Nobel Prize

Image
A little off topic for MW but fun nonetheless. Perhaps it's a good thing the science of microbiology wasn't represented this year :)

"That's right, certain Australian beetles will try to copulate with discarded beer bottles, but they have to be of the right type - brown ones with bobbly bits on them. This fascinating observation made almost 30 years ago has finally landed entomologists Darryl Gwynne and David Rentz with an Ig Nobel Prize.

The American awards were handed out on Thursday at Harvard University's Sanders Theatre, in what has become down the years a slightly chaotic but fun event where people throw paper planes and a little girl berates the winners."
