Re: Ig-noble award candidate?
They're also only going to make and distribute 15 of them. And they'll be monitored on Twitter and Facebook by volunteers, rather than properly, via robust communications. I find the words 'publicity stunt' rapidly marching through my brain suddenly...
I can see the Twitter feed now:
21:15 - I ain't Spartacus - is having a lovely Sandwich.
21:18 - I ain't Spartacus - is eating a doughnut.
21:30 - I ain't Spartacus - has gone down the pub.
02:15 - I ain't Spartacus - hic! Beer iz yummy!
13:01 - I ain't Spartacus - my aid worker in Africa got kidnapped while I was down the pub last night. As he put out his final cry for help, I was drinking some excellent bitter and eating peanuts. #sadface
13:20 - I ain't Spartacus - has signed up to monitor a new aid worker, and hopes he'll do better than the last one.
