Obama Receives Second Nobel Prize

Somehow, he didn't come away with the Prize for Web Design.

Oslo—The Norwegian Nobel Committee today announced that American President Barack Obama has been awarded the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. Obama, who now becomes the first person in history to be named a Peace laureate multiple times, was chosen over a number of other nominees including women’s rights advocate Malala Yousafzai and NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

Committee chairman Thorbjørn Jagland appeared pleased about the decision, telling reporters that this year’s award will rank alongside 2007’s (Al Gore) and 2009’s (Barack Obama) as one of the most significant in world history.

Other committee members, including Kasi Kullman Five, appeared less certain. “Threatening a war with Syria and then not doing it is peaceful, right? If nothing else he probably did more to deserve it this year anyway.” Five’s phone then buzzed, notifying her that the civilian death toll from a drone strike in Pakistan had reached 15. “To be honest,” Five said after sighing audibly, “I don’t even remember what peace is anymore.”
