The funniest paper you will read today

Thanks to Free Radical, I note a paper in Angewandte Chemie from a Chinese team [1] where they coated gloves with tannic acid and found that it greatly improved the ability of the gloves to catch fish.

I kinda love this idea; sure, catching fish in your hands is awesome (you can really imagine a version of these gloves being sneaked into a noodling championship in Mississippi), but who knows what uses this invention will be used for?
