The Nobel Peace Prize

This JUST happened.


-----

Mr. C. is in a tizzy about the reactions to the Nobel Peace Prize winner announced today.
Tired of all the Obama-hating facebook statuses, Mr. C. posted this:

"Andrew Chandler wants to know... can anyone name (without the Internet) ANY winner of ANY of the [Nobel] prizes in the last 3 years?"

One of the responses?
"I think they gave it to him cause he was the first black pres."

My lover's tired, frustrated response?
"I'm pretty sure other places have had black leaders, too.
Like, umm, Africa."

Maybe it's because I've been up twenty hours on four hours of sleep
After a crammed week of love and homework and documents.
But after he said that, we looked at each other and died laughing.

Hope it made you laugh too!
