Invisible Gorilla Steals Ig Noble Prize

The strange case of an invisible gorilla has scooped the 2004 Ig Nobel Prize for Psychology, with dropped food and country music being honoured in other categories. The prizes, for achievements that "make you laugh, then think", were handed out on Thursday at Harvard University, Massachusetts.

While this article doesn't seem immediately relevant to linguistics per se, it does contain a link to a fascinating video of a bunch of guys passing around a basketball and the perambulation of an invisible gorilla. More to the point, Ned Block showed this clip in a talk of his I attended last spring. Fun stuff.
