I'm supposed to be writing a serious blog post.

No kidding-- I've got the article; I've got some positive and snarky comments ready and I even ordered and got the book. So of course I should be writing a post about "how small differences grow into troublesome gaps and what we can do about it."

But am I? Of course not because last night the Ig Nobel Awards were given. And who can resist them? Not I--( I know, I know I should have written "not me" but since I am a total fan of Judy Holliday consider the "Not I" as a homage).

BTW my favorite awardee was the brassiere which, "in an emergency, can be quickly converted into a pair of gas masks, one for the brassiere wearer and one to be given to some needy bystander". For the illustration click here. For a picture of the bra being demoed click here

Ah there are so many things that I could say; but instead I will leave you to read about the rest of the winners. After all I have a book to read and that serious blog post to write. .
