It's 'cause he's black, see.
So, after the meeting, I went to lunch with a friend and we worked out a list of other stuff they can give Obama prizes for.
Next year, in keeping with the theme, the Nobel Prizes will go to Barack Obama for
Peace - For his contribution to Changey Hope
and the following year, we can give it to him again, for
Peace - Hopey Change
Literature - for "Audacity of Hope"
Chemistry - for caring deeply about global warming
Physics - for walking on water
Economics - for improving the global economy by causing the US dollar to plummet
Moreover, we propose that in honour of the Greatness that is Obama, a new series of Nobel Prizes be established.
For racial reconciliation:
for being the world's first white man in a black man's body.
Come up with your own, and send them to The Nobel Prize committee.
