Stephen Nipper highlights two of this year's Ig Nobel winners — the Combover Patent; the scientific validity of the Five-Second Rule — in this week's IP Memes. It's worth noting that Howard University freshman Jillian Clark, responsible for the landmark research on the safety of dropped food, is the youngest ever Ig Nobel recipient.
