"Miller has sold more than 150,000 of his Neuticles"

Some people have VERY strange minds - "Pooch Neuticles top Ig Nobels".

Gregg Miller mortgaged his home and maxed out his credit cards to mass produce his invention -- prosthetic testicles for neutered dogs.
Miller has sold more than 150,000 of his Neuticles, more than doubling his $500,000 investment. The silicone implants come in different sizes, shapes, weights and degrees of firmness.

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the above article to see the other Ig Nobel winners. Go Minnesota!

And some people have even stranger minds for giving awards to these people:

Named after Alfred Nobel's distant cousin lgnatius, the lg Nobel Prize is co-sponsored by the MIT Museum and an irreverent scientific journal, the Annals of Improbable Research.

The lg Nobel committee bestows prizes...across the full spectrum of scientific endeavor. The physics prize [in 1993] went to a Frenchman who, after painstaking research, concluded that the buildup of calcium in chickens' eggshells could only be the product of--voila--cold fusion. A retired engineer in South Carolina copped a mathematics prize for his calculation of the odds that Mikhail Gorbachev is really the Antichrist as 8,606,091,751,882 to 1.
Jay Schiffman, a Michigan electrical engineer, is one lg Nobel winner who didn't feel the honor was worth a trip to Cambridge. Schiffman is the inventor of AutoVision, a hookup that lets people drive a car and watch TV at the same time. The committee deemed this worthy of a special award for visionary technology. Schiffman responded: "Those MIT kids are still wet behind the ears. This isn't like cold fusion--I can demonstrate it. Even with a pornographic videotape, you can drive in traffic, no problem."

Others can't wait to come to Cambridge to deliver acceptance speeches. Among them, three urologists responsible for a detailed research report, "Acute Management of Zipper-Entrapped Penis," that appeared in the Journal of Emergency Medicine.

Thanks to Alissa for that magnificent dog testicle article. I can always count on her for some good "ball-related" humor.
