That will win the war!

The 2007 Ig Noble Prize winner for peace is the The Air Force Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio. In 1994, they asked for 7.5 million dollars to create a "gay bomb." Edward Hammond from a watchdog group said, ""The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soldiers to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistibly attractive to one another." The Pentagon has confirmed this story but insists that the plan is abandoned.

You've got to be kidding! Do real people with a brain really think things like this up and not only get funding but win a prize? Maybe I can submit an idea too.

I'm not sure that I would want to win an Ig Noble Prize though.

Monty Python did a sketch about the worlds funniest joke that made people laugh themselves to death. In the sketch it was used as a war weapon and read out to the Germans by Englishmen who didn't understand the German language so they wouldn't die laughing reading it!

That is a really funny sketch. Monty Python is hillarious. But I have to admit, I ilke Fry and Laurie more.
