Here's one with a twist! Minimize $\frac{2x^3+1}{4y(xy)}$ subject to $x\ge\frac12$ and $\frac xy>1$. I'll post my solution in a few days.

$$\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}=(2x^3+1)\frac{8y4x}{(4y(xy))^2}=0\implies2y=x$$ Note that $2x^3+1=0$ does not yield a solution as $2^{1/3}\lt\frac12$. Continuing, $$\frac{2x^3+1}{4y(xy)} \Leftrightarrow x=2y \Rightarrow \left(4y+\frac{1}{4y^2}\right)'=0 \Rightarrow 4\frac{1}{2y^3}=0\Rightarrow y=\frac12,\quad x=1,\quad \min(M)=3$$ To verify, $$\left(4y+\frac{1}{4y^2}\right)''=\frac{3}{2y^4} $$ which is always positive so $M$ is concave up and we have a minimum. Note that $M$ is not bounded from above. I'll admit that a more rigorous analysis may be required to assert this is indeed the minimum of $M$. Can anyone provide one?
