An award given out by the Norwegian-based Nobel committee. In the dark and oppressive capitalistic society of the 20th century, the prize was one of the most coveted and hard to win of all the Nobel prizes, given only to people who actually, like DID something, such as devoting their lives to the service of others or some other worthless garbage.
In the more enlightened recent age, thankfully, this unfair requirement no longer exists. One merely needs to be able to TALK about doing good things, at length and with great charisma. Whether you actually follow through on your promises is no longer relevant. 2009's prize being awarded to Barack Obama is a huge step in this direction.
At the rate things are going, by 2015 we can expect to see the Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to the first player to collect Pacific Avenue, North Carolina Avenue, and Pacific Avenue in the McDonald's Monopoly sweepstakes. This is truly a great time to be alive.
I just won the Nobel Peace Prize! I'm lovin' it!
