The wisdom of crowds

I'm amused to see that very little positive comment has flowed about The One getting the Nobel Peace prize. The pithiest was someone on Twitter who said "Nobel shark jump".

Seriously, I think The Daily Mash is going to be hard pressed to beat Ross on this one.

Hair pulling and scratching following Prince Phillip's welcoming question to Obama “And what exotic part of the spear throwing world do you come from?” should really have been a disqualifier and neither should have received a piece of the noble prize.

When people said giving a peace prize to Henry "bomb 'em all and let God sort 'em out" Kissinger was beyond parody, the Nobel committee obviously saw it as a challenge.

He should give his award to Osama Bin Laden. At least Osama has the decency to kill one of his own when he attacks civilians. Obama uses unmanned drones and special forces to murder and maim, and he is in the process of sending another 40,000 soldiers out there.

What is the Iraqi death tole since the war began? 600,000? And the allies death tole? 3,000? Hmmm, is this the Nobel genocide prize?

To borrow a phrase from you Obnoxio, Obama and the Nobel panel are all total cunts.

Dear Obnoxio

I'd like to send you a free copy of my book Words You Don't Know. In order to do so, I'll need an address to send it to and a name (but it doesn't have to be your real name). If you'd like that, then send me the details to:
robin at robinbloor dot com
I quoted you in the book, so you deserve a free copy even if only to prop up a table.

In other news, the IgNobel Prize for most deranged world leader goes to Gorgon 'Melted face' Brown for his services to world peas.

In the winner's own words, "There is mush to do for these small but numerous Green pods of hope. We will free those who languish in Guacamole Bay and bring them home to where they belong. In a little pot beside the fish and chips."

The Gorgon, whose face has been favourably compared to a sock full of spaghetti tied up ugly, accepted the prize on behalf of his entire government, none of whom have ever done anything useful at all.

Which is, of course, a prerequisite for prizes these days.

if the NPP in this case is about The ObaMessiah being black while being elected, then the Prize actually belongs to the American People.

This is for electing him on the basis that he's "black", and therefore showing the Righteous that they have made some sort of gramscian transition in their feelings and outlook on life.

Since the American People (the whities at any rate, are fucking racist sister-shagging rednecks with beer-filled pickups full of guns as everyone on the planet knows, then they effing racists must have changed at least a little bit, and deserve to be thrown a fraction of a penny each.

I did spend a lot of last year trying to warn the American People about this man, but nobody seems to have heard me.
