“Peace Prize Committee disbands”

. . . says the headline on this very pointed satire by William Smith on TCSDaily. A small sample:

Responding to overwhelming pressure from every civilized person on earth with any semblance of intelligence, the Nobel Peace Prize Committee today announced that it had voted to terminate its charter. Just prior to the unanimous vote, the Committee voted to rescind numerous past prizes – including the 2007 prize to itinerant comedian and performance artist Albert Gore of the United States – and award those prizes and all future prizes to the United States military.

With regard to the future awards, the Committee issued the following statement: “In light of the Chinese, Russian, Iranian and North Korean threats, the threats of Islamic terrorists and their state-sponsors, and potential breakdown of states into warring tribal factions, the Nobel Peace Prize Committee believes that the U.S. Military will likely be the recipient of every Nobel Peace Prize for the next thirty to forty years. For that reason, the Committee has disbanded and placed its considerable financial resources into the hands of “the only institution capable of maintaining and enhancing the peace of the world.”

Read it all and enjoy.
