For those of you with a sense of humor about science and the present 
discussion, I'm forwarding this excerpt from the latest Annals of 
Improbable Research:

The mini-Annals of Improbable Research ("mini-AIR")
Issue Number 1995-12
December, 1995
ISSN 1076-500X
Key words: improbable research, science humor, Ig Nobel, AIR, the

We are preparing our annual "Swimsuit issue."  If you or yours 
(please do not send somebody else or somebody else's) has a 
photograph that is suitable for our annual swimsuit issue, please 
send it in.  Weight, age, body-fat percentage, posture, and 
fashion sense will all be given equal lack of consideration. Our 
last cover model, a distinguished retired surgeon, was in his late 
70's when he donned his Speedo for the photographer.  Stiff 
competition for the cover slot is expected again this year.

Several readers have gingerly asked whether their physical 
characteristics might render them suitable for inclusion in AIR's 
special Swimsuit Issue. Our answer is: if you possess it, flaunt 
it, whatever it is. Please mail sutiable or unsuitable photos of 
yourself suited or unsuited (black & white photos preferred, but 
we don't insist) to the usual address. If you need the photo back, 
you'd better include a stamped self-addressed envelope. No, not 
everyone will be chosen, but we urge you to try this, for your 
children's sake.

[A special note: Anyone whose photograph has appeared in the 
Studmuffins of Science calendar is ineligible for the AIR Swimsuit 
Issue, for obvious reasons.]
