Ig Nobel Prizes
First Laugh, Then Think!
Episode 1: Homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck
Kees Moeliker won the Ig Nobel Prize for Biology in 2003 for documenting the first scientifically recorded case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck. In other words, Mr. Moeliker, who is the curator of the Natural History Museum in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, was witness of the fact that a male duck raped another male duck, which was already dead!
Ig Nobel Prizes are the not-so-well-known alternative of the famous Nobel Prizes. Each year since 1989, ten scientists receive prizes for "research that makes people LAUGH and then THINK". Watch six scientists and their studies about the most important subjects of our daily life: having sex, food, money, death, and having sex again.
Mr. Bahram Sadeghi (1967, Iran) works since 1998 as a director and host for public TV stations in The Netherlands. In addition he is a freelance writer for various national newspapers and weeklies. Mr Sadeghi has no hobbies.
