“The The Woman and Miss Sweetie Poo”– an Ig Nobel Prize favorite moment

This historic Ig Nobel Favorite Moment video stars Glenda Browne, Ig Nobel Literature Prize winner, for her study of the word “the” — and of the many ways that word causes problems for anyone who tries to put things into alphabetical order.

Thanks to Jenny Browne as a guest voice and Jon Jermey.

The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that make people LAUGH, then THINK.

The 30th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony will be webcast September 17, 2020 at
