No Bull

Eighty-three years ago today, George Bernard Shaw refused to accept the money for his Nobel Prize (Literature, 1925). “I can forgive Alfred Nobel for inventing dynamite,” he said, “but only a fiend in human form could have invented the Nobel Prize.” (He wanted to refuse the Nobel Prize altogether, but accepted it at his wife’s behest: she considered it a tribute to Ireland.) Once again, something that Obama “should have done… But didn’t. Wouldn’t.”

    If it was given to manipulate future decisions, it seems to be working.

      The problem is, Obama has already been given so many awards, accolades, and pure brainwashed adulations that there’s nothing left to give him on the extremely unlikely off-chance that he actually does accomplish something in the future.

      The same applies to Al Gore. He’s already been given a Nobel Prize just for warning us about Manbearpig; what do they give him if he actually finds Manbearpig?

    I believe there was a place to vote for B.O. to get a Heisman.

    I loved that episode!
    He is such a joke.

    Well, the question I have to ask is, does the Peace Prize make a good coaster? Or would I be just wasting my time?

    • RoboMonkey Says:

      You’d look pretentious if you whipped out your Nobel to use as a coaster while everyone else was resting their drinks on cardboard. It would only be polite if you were drinking with a group of Peace Prize winners and you were all using them as coasters…

      …but I have trouble thinking of many groups I’d less like to have as drinking buddies than the recent crop of Peace Prize winners.
