From the BBC news item on the 2007 Ig Nobel Prizes:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7026150.stm

'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.'

As one does.
