What would you get an Ig Nobel prize for?

Asked by rebbel (26757points) September 27th, 2010

The Ig Nobel Prizes are an American parody of the Nobel Prizes and are given each year in early October for ten achievements that “first make people laugh, and then make them think”.
For example read this prize winner who researched “knuckle cracking does not cause arthritis.”
What curious research would you want to do that would make you win the Ig Nobel prize one year?
I would like to find out if the stuff that is on the follicles of facial hair could make for a strong glue.

I would do research on curing bald spots in eyebrows. Seriously, I have this and so does at least one of my daughters. ;)
