The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced this morning that they will award the Nobel Peace Prize to the Nobel Peace Prize.

The prize receives the award for its unwavering efforts at promoting a better image of peace: "before we started awarding the prize, politicians thought peace was 'uncool' and used war to make a name for themselves. The peace prize changed all that".

The Nobel committee was pleasantly surprised when it heard the news: "this is a great honor", said Geir Lundstadt, secretary of the committee. "The Nobel committee has been promoting peace for many years, and yet we never dreamed that we could receive the Nobel Peace Prize for our hard work".

But there is also criticism: "Now the Nobel Peace Prize is on the same list with Henry Kissenger, Barack Obama and Yasser Arafat, and one wonders what that will mean for its credibility", says historian Thierry Baudet. He calls for a boycott:"It would grace the Committee to stay home and really show the Nobel committee what it thinks it's worth.

Tossers, but then they did give it to Obama, the peace prize really lost (what little after giving it to Kissinger) credibility it had.
