Prof Vespride has been awarded the Ig Nobel for his discovery of Wasparin. It is related with vespoid behavior. Those who suffer are snappish, easily peeved, insolent, and irritable. They are of slight built with a waist size of 50 – 56 cms.
Vespride demonstrated that vespoids have 10 to 20 fold concentration of Wasparin in their blood as compared to normal humans. He used the yellow jacket hornets as a laboratory model and isolated Wasparin from their cut heads. The nests were recycled to make green rice paper.
The Berck group has bought the Wasparin patent with the hope of developing it as a slender waist drug.
