Nobel Prize Awarded, Worthless

Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize this morning. He was nominated for the award just two weeks into his presidency and has accomplished nothing prize-worthy since. My guess is that Obama is just as embarrassed to receive this as the Nobel committee should be for having awarded it. Maybe it was a lean year for nominees. I heard Obama only had to beat Robert Mugabe, Peyton Manning and George Clooney.

Giving some context for how worthless this prize is, Gandhi never won it, but Henry Kissinger, Al Gore and Yasser Arafat have. The committee justified Obama's award by noting his desire to “strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples.” By this standard, Large Professor should have won the award in 1991. If there was ever a time for Kanye to grab the mic at an award show, this was it.

I dunno, I've always seen the nobel peace price as a somewhat satirical award. As you pointed out, when a peace loving, mass murdering, war criminal, pacifist like Henry Kissinger has already won the award it kind of looses its legitimacy..

Ehh. weak post holmes. I'm not mad at the president for accepting this award. At last check, it was a good thing to win this award. You wanna go and yoink Kissenger's prize? Handle that.

But in the here and now, the man has been dealt one of if not the shittiest hands an incoming President has ever faced.

He should be awarded for his efforts in getting us out of the shitfuck state W left us in, as well for his international diplomacy policies, which mind you has been on ghost ride for 8 years.

Get yours Obama.

I should have won the award for eating pussy like a champ! Or smoking a ton of weed. I rolled the fattest joint the other day and went to an ICP concert. Shit was off the chain! I smoked said joint with a bunch of psycho killer clowns and they were blazed ya dead homie. I should get the nobel peace prize for smoking out like 8 juggalos.

I'm not mad that Obama accepted the award, I'm just saying it's ridiculous that he got it. I'm hating the game and not the player here. I shot a basket at halftime of a Bulls game last year. If they gave me the Rookie of the Year trophy, I'd take it but would expect Derrick Rose to be like WTF.
