Fake Dog Testicle Creator

Yeah. You read it right. The winner of this years coveted Ig Nobel Prize is Gregg Miller, who went into hock up to his neck to market his prosthetic canine testicle.

Gregg Miller mortgaged his home and maxed out his credit cards to mass produce his invention — prosthetic testicles for neutered dogs.

What started 10 years ago with an experiment on an unwitting Rottweiler named Max has turned into a thriving mail-order business. And on Thursday night Miller's efforts earned him a dubious yet strangely coveted honor: the Ig Nobel Prize for medicine.

"Considering my parents thought I was an idiot when I was a kid, this is a great honor," he said. "I wish they were alive to see it."

The Ig Nobels, given at Harvard University by Annals of Improbable Research magazine, celebrate the humorous, creative and odd side of science.

This makes a hell of a lot more sense to me than giving Mohammed El Baradei the Nobel Peace Prize.
