A visibly surprised Bush on hearing about the nobel prize
Stockholm: Faced with unprecedented criticism over the decision to award the Nobel peace prize to Obama – a rookie president, the Nobel committee announced George Bush – one of the greatest yet unsung leaders of this century – as the recipient of the Nobel prize in literature.
The announcement comes after the entire world had reacted vehemently against giving Obama the peace prize, especially when his only contribution to world peace so far has been mild, self depreciating humour.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that the committee members woke up after a drunken night in Stockholm only to discover that Obama had won the peace prize. Legal guidelines meant that they could neither reverse the decision nor award it to another, more deserving person. “The nobel prize in literature is equal if not more significant than the peace prize”, said the spokesperson for the Nobel committee, struggling to overcome an apparent hangover.
The prize has been awarded for Bush’s book ‘Decision Points’, which the former president has started writing. The committee said that rarely has a personality captured the imagination of the world so much & they just knew that the book, written in the typical Dubya style with no concern for political correctness, spelling, grammar or even logic, would be just the book to lead the world into a new era of literary awakening.
George Bush, best known for his violent, aggressive & invasive approach to world peace said that he had never done any of the things that he did hoping for a nobel prize. “We managed to invade, occupy & decimate a few countries. Killed one dictator & put many into power. If all that doesnt bring peace, I dont know what does”, he said.
“And how can Sweden, which is after all a poor African country afford to give away so many prizes ? Shouldnt they first try to feed their own people?”, he added before being informed by his assistant that the award did not come from Sudan.
Meanwhile, Obama told Utopia that he also expects to be given an Olympic gold medal, an Academy award, a Miss Universe title and a slot in the band U2 as recognition of his unbelievable talents. “The Nobel prize, let me make it very clear, is just a beginning”, he added, with an enigmatic, yet serious stare into the camera.
