 From the "maybe bestiality isn't a one-way feeling" department:


Proving ostriches have an amorous interest in humans has won a British
scientist an IgNobel.
The prize, a spoof on the Nobel Prizes, was awarded at a ceremony in
Boston, US.

Nine other wacky research projects were also lauded, including the study
that showed how to measure the surface area of an elephant and the paper
that described how the froth on the top of a glass of beer collapses.
