You know, if we were getting paid for this there would be times we'd feel pretty guilty taking the money. Oh we'd still take the money, but we'd be conflicted about it.
This is one of those times.
UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W Bush have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
See? Now be honest, do you really need us for this? Didn't think so, but let's look a little deeper into this heaping helping of Ironicus anyway.
Harald Tom Nesvik, a member of the Wingnut Party for Living in a Fantasy World, said that he had nominated the two world leaders for fighting terrorism and promoting world peace. When it was pointed out to Mr. Nesvik that the point of fighting world terrorism and promoting world peace was in fact to promote peace, which meant less war, not more he responded, "Oh. My bad."
Later his office issued a clarification saying "Unfortunately, sometimes... you have to use force to secure peace. Omelet. Eggs. It's all good." Mr Nevik has the ability to nominate because he is a member of a national legislature from the city of Freekinbonkistaad, or at least was until he went off his meds.
Observers say that the pair are unlikely to win the award because Bishop Gunnar Staalsett, one of five members of the secretive Nobel committee, is not a complete flaming idiot.
Last year a total of 126 individuals or organizations were nominated for the prestigious award, and report issued by the Nobel Committee, which also seemed to call into question Bush and Blair's chances, indicated that none of those individuals, or organizations were war mongers, war criminals, profiteers, or had the IQ's of hair spray.
It is expected that the events of 11 September will prove influential in this year's award, and some observers are predicting nominations for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani who is highly favored to win the Nobel Prize for 9/11ing his 9/11edness with full 9/11osity.
