IgNobel for Sheldon

Recommended Posts

Sheldon has often hinted at his desire to be a recipient of the Nobel Prize. I would love to see an episode showing Sheldons reaction if he was instead a finalist for an IgNobel prize. Perhaps for a dissertation he wrote as a joke about he origins of the word 'Bazinga!'.

Is there really an IgNobel prize? Is it like the "Razzies",the opposite of the "Oscar"?

The Igs are real, they aren't considered a joke like the razzies. The recipients receive their prizes from actual Nobel prize winners.

Quote from their website (http://improbable.com/ig/) 'The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative  and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology'
