The Ig Nobel Prize in Linguistics

"A University of Barcelona team for showing that rats are unable to tell the difference between a person speaking Japanese backwards and somebody speaking Dutch backwards."


Presumably this means they could tell the difference between Dutch and Japanese spoken forward...
