|09:40 am - The Ig Nobel Prize goes to...|
For those dire souls who missed the Ig Nobel Prize awards at Harvard University's gloriously resplendent Sanders theatre last night, and who will therefore be unfamiliar with "Homosexual necrophilia... in the Mallard Duck" those who have lost your chance to win "Ten Trillion Dollars. Ten Trillion, Genuine... *Zimbabwean* dollars!", those who will never know the sweet delights of a Chlamydial Cupcake ~ I ever so humbly present you now with a miracle of the modern era, screenshots of the event live as it streamed on Youtube.
Imagine my moment of Abundantly Happy Surprise to see both Evelyn Evelyn performing in the conjoined bustle outfit I designed for them, and Neil Gaiman in his Kambriel Oscar clobber all on stage at the same time! Somehow, the universe did not implode...
Streptococchal Sweeties! Feel free to caption these photos however you deem fit!
Why yes, that dash of crimson in Neil's pocket is a giant padded bra, which would later be administered to his head. In the name of Science, of course.
Dear, raucous Harvard audiences ~ please allow me this moment to proclaim my love for thee.
Ahh, better photos here ~ taken by Richard Baguley:
And now I must pack for NYC to see these fine people in celebration of the birth of an artist...
Wishing you all a hauntedly merry October!

That event looks a real hoot!
I wish someone would pay me to research something utterly rediculous :)
Well, they did cover the concept of promotions being issued at random, so it could happen ;)
Gorgeous work! I recognized Neil's finery and was delighted to finally see it up close in person. Evelyn Evelyn's dress is also utterly splendid.
How very awesome you were able to be there in person! I remember going to see a performance at Sanders Theatre some years ago, and loved the venue, as well as the very-not-reserved-in-their-seats character of the local audiences!
The one time I went to the IgNobels there was a constant rain of paper airplanes from the audience.
Yes, they revived that tradition this year. There was a human target on stage for them to aim at, but I think approximately one out of the hundreds actually managed to hit ;)
I aspire to be the ol' gent with the bra on his head. I think it would only take about $1000 to research
"Evaluating the Air Quality in American Cities by LC-MS of Inhabitant's Boogers."
Have A Grand time in NYC.
