Laugh or cry?

Niels Bohr apparently once said that there are some things so serious you have to laugh at them. He died before the Ig Nobel Prizes were devised. Two papers caught my eye this year. The Art Prize was given for a paper examining the relative pain people suffer while looking at an ugly painting, rather than a pretty painting, while being shot [in the hand] by a laser beam. The Arctic Science Prize was awarded for excellent and much needed work on testing how reindeer react to seeing humans who are disguised as polar bears.
