Nobel Obel Joker Prize

Looks like everyone should get a prize, just like from the bottom of every Cracker Jack box.

The Nobel Show Horse.  The American Spectator.

By awarding the prize on the basis of hopes and not accomplishments the Norwegians helped Americans bring focus to an uncomfortable, widely held feeling that with Mr. Obama it’s all about him, all the time. 

At the recent International Olympic Committee in Copenhagen his pitch — and his wife’s — were filled with personal pronouns.

For all the personal pronouns and perennial campaigning, the prizes have continued unabated.

Booby Prize.  Posterous.

On the other hand, there have been those quite able to pull off some incredible pranks.

Bemused, the chairman of the Nobel Prize Committee, Mr. Thorbjørn Jagland, on the beclowning of the Nobel Peace Prize Recipient, President Barack Obama.  Big image here

“Oh, for heaven’s sake,” says Labour Party politician Jagland. “Everyone needs to lighten up a bit. We thought awarding a Nobel prize to that silly little man in the White House was so painfully obvious a joke that no explanation would be necessary. We thought the whole world would join us in healthy, therapeutic laughter.”

The Flat Tire Before The Final Exam

Joke of the day.

The joy of college freedom.  The creativity of excuses.  Also at Humor 7h.

At Penn State University , there were four sophomores taking chemistry and all of them had an ‘A’ so far. These four friends were so confident that, the weekend before finals, they decided to visit some friends and have a big party. They had a great time but, after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn’t make it back to Penn State until early Monday morning.

Rather than taking the final then, they decided that after the final they would explain to their professor why they missed it. They said that they visited friends but on the way back they had a flat tire. As a result, they missed the final. The professor agreed they could make up the final the next day. The guys were excited and relieved. They studied that night for the exam.

The next day the Professor placed them in separate rooms and gave them a test booklet. They quickly answered the first problem worth 5 points. Cool, they thought! Each one in separate rooms, thinking this was going to be easy… then they turned the page. On the second page was written…

For 95 points: Which tire? _________
