Even if you only have the time to read the first few paragraphs of this article, it’s worth it. It’s about karaoke, and the guy who “invented” it (students in some classes will remember the name Daisuke Inoue from our Nobel/IgNobel activity, I hope). The reason he did so is pretty funny.
“Sing to Me” (from Real Life)
This video of the IgNobel prize ceremony is cued to the part where Mr. Inoue starts singing (it will open in a new tab).
I categorized this in “peace” too, because of the IgNobel he won “for inventing a machine which teaches people to bear the awful singing of ordinary citizens … and enjoy it anyway.”
