Here is the main site - improbable.com/ig with a listing of this year's winners and an archive for the previous 22 years of winners - just in case you want to see how you can get an award for some really silly ideas or breathe a sigh of relief that someone actually did do a study on - avoiding interior explosions during colonoscopies :)
Here are a few others from the archives -
HYGIENE: Eduardo Segura, of Lavakan de Aste, in Tarragona, Spain, for inventing a washing machine for cats and dogs. Hmmmm
LITERATURE: John Richards of Boston, England, founder of The Apostrophe Protection Society, for his efforts to protect, promote, and defend the differences between plural and possessive. Hurray!!!
ART: Don Featherstone of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, for his ornamentally evolutionary invention, the plastic pink flamingo.
REFERENCE: "Pink Flamingos: Splendor on the Grass" I have actually written about this before in Endangered Species
My photo take on it all -
This might not become as popular as the pink flamingo; but there are possibilities on the east coast anyway.
Have an award winning day!!
