I like how the researchers were able to sneak in an obscene word in the title of a scientific paper:
LITERATURE PRIZE [AUSTRALIA, EL SALVADOR, UK] — Thea Blackler, Rafael Gomez, Vesna Popovic and M. Helen Thompson, for documenting that most people who use complicated products do not read the instruction manual.

REFERENCE: "Life Is Too Short to RTFM: How Users Relate to Documentation and Excess Features in Consumer Products," Alethea L. Blackler, Rafael Gomez, Vesna Popovic and M. Helen Thompson, Interacting With Computers, vol. 28, no. 1, 2014, pp. 27-46.

I think this is because Physics Forums is a bit too strict about what you can post / discuss.

Maybe we should start a section called IgNoble Ideas.

Oh, they are present, just scattered around a bit!
(and I suspect many more than we see are expunged)
