The most ignoble use of science since...

(Fill in your own over-blown comparison here)

"A group of Spanish academics at the Université de Montréal has established a research group to tackle the question of why Celine Dion, who is worth more than $250-million and has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide, has failed to capture the Latin American market".

Much more at The National Post, but I will spare you the grisly details. Would not a more fitting task for these men and women of science be the hunt for a cure, or at least an antidote to La Dion's oeuvre?

Meanwhile a few degrees of longitude further east, MIT grads (an institution that has furnished 26 Nobel prize winners) have supposedly tackled the world's most pressing problem - frizzy hair. Ho hum.

Maybe Celine Dion is funding the research.

It would be more worthwhile spending on academics than jewellery or whatever, as a far as I am concerned.
