The IgNobel Prizes honor achievements that make people laugh and then think. Find out more about the optimal way to dunk a biscuit, the caloric intake from a human-cannibalism diet compared to other meat diets and whether it is possible to identify the presence of a fly in a glass of wine by smell

Leonard Fisher, IgNobel winner in physics (1999) for discovering the optimal way to dunk a biscuit.

James Cole, IgNobel winner in nutrition (2018) for calculating that the caloric intake from a human-cannibalism diet is significantly lower than the caloric intake from most other traditional meat diets.

Peter Witzgall, IgNobel winner in biology (2018) for demonstrating that wine experts can reliably identify, by smell, the presence of a single fly in a glass of wine.
