The Ig Nobel Prizes are an American parody of the Nobel Prizes and are given each year in early October for ten unusual or trivial achievements in scientific research. The stated aim of the prizes is to "first make people laugh, and then make them think". Organized by the scientific humor magazine Annals of Improbable Research (AIR), they are presented by a group that includes Nobel Laureates at a ceremony at Harvard University's Sanders Theater, and they are followed by a set of public lectures by the winners at MIT.

搞笑诺贝尔奖,又译“幽默诺贝尔奖”,是对诺贝尔奖的恶搞版本,其名称来自Ignoble(不名誉的)和Nobel Prize(诺贝尔奖)的结合。该奖项于每年十月上旬授予“乍一看好笑,后又引人深思”的十大科学研究成就。主办方为科学幽默杂志,评委中有些竟是真正的诺贝尔奖得主。地点为哈佛大学的桑德斯剧场。获奖者将有机会在麻省理工学院进行公开演讲。
