Unintended IRB humor

From the directions to an IRB form I'm filling out:
Describe potential benefit(s), if any, for subjects participating in the research. If there are no anticipated benefits, this should be stated. [Note: Payment to subjects is not considered to be a benefit of research (see Payment section below)].
What is payment to subjects if not a benefit? (Shades of "Guinea-pigging.")
