Milk Dung Spot Light Robot Sphere Snail Bathtub

That was the subject of an email I got this morning. After I headed in to work, I listed to Science Friday, which included the Ig Nobel Prize festivites. One of the winners?

CHEMISTRY: Mayu Yamamoto of the International Medical Center of Japan, for developing a way to extract vanillin — vanilla fragrance and flavoring — from cow dung.

Ice cream samples were offered to the Laureates present.

Coincidence? Or something greater? -m

    I’ve heard about Yamamoto’s work some time ago. Sounds ridiculous but I still like the idea. Although I admit I’m a bit reluctant to try vanilla ice-creams now ;)
