Two Ig Nobel Prize celebrities are in the lineup for the 2013 TED talks, which was announced today:
- Kees Moeliker, who was awarded the 2003 Ig Nobel Prize winner in biology for documenting the first scientifically recorded case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck.
- Amanda Palmer, who performed as a singer (and once as a wedding prop) in several Ig Nobel Prize ceremonies.
