Annals of Improbable Research

The 'Annals of Improbable Research' is a bi-monthly magazine devoted to scientific humor, in the form of a satirical take on the standard academic journal. 'AIR', published six times a year since 1995, usually showcases at least one piece of scientific research being done on a strange or unexpected topic, but most of their articles concern real or fictional absurd experiments, such as a comparison of apples and oranges using infrared spectroscopy.
