Non-Prize-Winning Jokes

Working on the proper humorous reaction to today's Nobel Peace Prize announcement:
  • Sure, it's nice, but it's not like it's an honorary degree from ASU
  • Don't react immediately; instead, wait for David Broder and Robert Robb to explain how this actually is good news for the Republicans
  • There goes Michael Crow's chance to serve on the Nobel Prize committee
  • See? The rest of the world doesn't like the GOP, either.
  • Or else they secretly want to see Bill Kristol's head explode. That would be pretty cool.
  • It's a double-edged sword. Because winning the Nobel Peace Prize can really ruin your whole day.
  • So Obama can't do anything in Copenhagen, but he's a hero in Stockholm? Choose your Scandanavian destination carefully, I always say. (Yes, the award ceremony -- for the Peace Prize only -- is in Oslo but the committee is based in Stockholm, where the other awards are given on the same day. I'm not letting you make my travel arrangements.)
Maybe the Nobel people are simply relieved at having a US president whose first reaction to anything isn't to bomb or send (more) troops. Still, that position got 46% of the vote in November.
