    I am only aware of China winning one Ig Nobel prize, and that was just awarded this year.

    Let's hear it for the Chinese who spent valuable research funds determining that "female fruit bats who perform oral sex on their male partners get more sexual intercourse during their mating."

    Can I get an arousing "Hip Hip HOORAH HAHAHAHAHA!" for that!

    I hope those of the asian persuasion take careful note of this valuable research, and learn to "go a little batty" more often!

    The Nobel Peace Prize is a Western contest designed to elevate Western figures. China could care less what the West thinks of them. To answer your question though: China has won the biggest prize to date -- Overtaking the world from the colonial imperialists.
