The peace prize goes to...

"Let there be peace on the Belarus streets. Yes, the Peace Prize was snagged by Alexander Lukashenko, president of Belarus, who made it illegal to applaud in public, and to the Belarus State Police for arresting a one-armed man for applauding."

 

The Joint Prize in Biology and Astronomy goes to...

"Dung, dung, dung, dung! This team won the Joint Prize in Biology and Astronomy for their celestial discovery that lost dung beetles find their way home by looking at the Milky Way. Here's how it works: After rolling a perfect ball of poo, the beetles climb on their dung balls and dance around in circles before taking off. The little jig lets the beetles check out the sky to get their bearings, according to Marie Dacke, a biologist at Lund University and her colleagues.

 

And the British Journal of Psychology found out people who think they are drunk also think they are attractive.
