The Ig Nobel Awards

The IgNobel Awards are this Thursday at Harvard. Based on Steve Crandall's recommendation, I impulse-purchased a ticket today. If anyone else local is going, it would be fun to meet up for a drink before or after.

IgNobel: The new inquisition of ultra ortodox scientists

IgNobel represents a new campaign to discredit unusual scientific achievements, which perhaps in the future will be useful for the advance of science.

This new scientific inquisition, a parody of the Nobel Prizes, is
very dangerous. In fact, it is used, in some cases anti-ethically, to attack and to ridiculize honest and prestigious scientists who curiously have published
their scientific articles in peer-review scientific journals!!!

My question is:
Should the IgNobel group receive an IgNobel prize?
