Here are some of America's most (in)famous weird awards:
1) The Ig-Nobel Prize: Awarded each year to "serious" academic researchers who waste the largest amount of our hard-earned tax money on the stupidest imaginable research projects.
Five recent recipients were a research team in Switzerland who determined — by experiment — whether it is better to be smashed over the head with a full bottle of beer or with an empty bottle.
2) The Darwin Awards: Awarded posthumously to people who got themselves killed in the stupidest possible ways.
For instance, two men in their 30s both won the coveted award after dying of head injuries when the game of "chicken" they were playing on their motorcycles resulted in a tie.
3) The Golden Raspberry: The opposite of the Academy Awards (Oscars), this award is given for the worst of the worst in films that year.
Recent recipients have included Lindsay Lohan, Kirk Cameron, and Cameron Diaz.
Other inappropriate awards include those given to the winners of eating contests, and scholarships awarded to the winners of smelliest feet competitions.
