On the Other Hand, Science Continues to Amaze

The Ig-Nobel Award winners are touring Little Britain.
Among those appearing in the first British version of the Ig Nobel show are Robert Batty of Oban's Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory, who has demonstrated that herring communicate by farting; Kees Moeliker, of Natuurmuseum Rotterdam, who documented the first scientifically recorded case of homosexual necrophilia in mallard ducks and Chris McManus, of University College London, who, after studying hundreds of ancient Greek statues, found their left testicles are always depicted as larger than right ones - while in real males, the right is invariably bigger.
The link to the complete article from The Guardian is in the title to this post.
