well technically this is about 50% ******** .

you see, a sub russian sub was fount in our waters and a huge deal was created by it. the russians then blamed it on being not in fact a russian recon sub spying on swedish national waters but undergrond siesmic activity.

eden though the alarm of the detection of the sub went along these lines:

"hello 112 (swedish 911) what's your emergensy?"
"umm, well. i think that a submarine is stranded on shallow water outside my summerhouse"
"sir, did i hear that corectly? a submarine is stranded outside your summerhouse?"
"i know it sounds weird but yes"
"how do you know?"
"well the top of it is sticking out of the water and it isn't moving. i tried calling out to them but they aren't responding"

some hour later it was discovered that there in fact was a submarine outside that guy's summerhouse and that the crew was, in fact, russian.

this one's true but it's important to not that an LG Nobel Prize means it's just a funny discovery that makes you think, not a real Nobel Prize.

Although there is an Ig nobel prize about herring communicating by farting, there is none about whales farting or russian submarines.

The submachine thing was right, but I don't even know why they added the ******* whale thing. Only five year olds would find that funny.

Did you know whales farts, but since they have no butts, farts doesn't sound?
