    Here are some of this year's wieners. Some funny sh!te here.


    Ivan R. Schwab, ... , for exploring and explaining why woodpeckers don't get
    headaches.

    Wasmia Al-Houty ... , for showing that dung beetles are finicky eaters.

    Howard Stapleton ... , for inventing an electromechanical teenager
    repellant -- a device that makes annoying high-pitched noise designed to be
    audible to teenagers but not to adults; and for later using that same
    technology to make telephone ringtones that are audible to teenagers but
    probably not to their teachers.

    Daniel Oppenheimer ... for his report "Consequences of Erudite Vernacular
    Utilized Irrespective of Necessity: Problems with Using Long Words
    Needlessly."

    Francis M. Fesmire ... , for his medical case report "Termination of
    Intractable Hiccups with Digital Rectal Massage"



    There are plenty more here
