Nobel Prizes…. so much fun.
This year’s Nobel prize for Lit goes to: Imre Kertész, a Hungarian.
You may now proceed to the nearest bookstore and buy his books… you cant bet theyre on display. No but all commercialization aside… his books should be quite wonderful. Those Swedes know how to choose’em.
So now is a good time to predict the Nobel Peace Prize winner. So let’s see… it has to be someone that has made huge contributions towards establishing peace in some region….. so.. where has a conflict ended? Not many places… Angola.. but that wasn’t a nice ending.. they killed the rebel leader. Kosovo? Maybe. There have been lots of negotiations between Ethopia-Eritrea…. Sudan civil war factions…. hmm.
The bicyclemark peace prize for this year goes to: Jimmy Carter… for his Cuba visit. Save the criticisms… he deserves one of these peace prizes.
Otherwise…. this year world leaders have been quite war-like and typically two-faced… so they deserve no prizes.
And now for the bicyclemark war prize… for the leader who has killed the most people this year: Ladies and Gentlemen…. we have a tie! The prize will be shared… the three winners are Vladimir Putin for his performance in “Flatten Chechnya”, George W. Bush for his production of “Execute, Bomb, and Pollute till you Drop” and of course Arial Sharon for his thrilling performance in “West Bank Go Boom”
Honorable mentions: Joseph Kabilla… for being his father’s son. Laurent Gbagbo.. for turning a nice country into a hell-hole. Jiang Zhemin… for being his usual charming self. Pervez Musharaff for wearing the same uniform during his 3 years of coup, and Prince Whatever of S. Arabia… for chopping off peoples hands.
whew… tough selection… better luck next year.
Congratulations to all winners.
