Ways to Use the Chocolate Issue

Ways to Use This Issue” is a featured article in the special Chocolate issue (volume 27, number 1) of the Annals of Improbable Research. This article is free to download:

Here’s a shorthand version of what’s in that article:

  • Write a limerick about one of the cited studies….
  • Write a long-single-sentence short story that includes the titles of every study mentioned in one of the review articles….
  • Do dramatic readings, in person, or in live or recorded video, of little chunks from the magazine….
  • Watch an Ig Nobel Prize winner…
  • Go down a rabbit hole. For some item that catches your fancy…
  • Go down a maybe-important rabbit hole…
  • If you are a journalist, some of those rabbit holes house bunnies that can make news editors hop to attention…
  • Start an argument about whether some particular study is good or bad, important or trivial, valuable or worthless.
