The Barack Obama Nobel Peace Prize Jokes In Full

obama-nobel-prizeBARACK Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize for saying good things about peace. Barack Obama was nominated for the award in February 2009, just two weeks into his presidency. You want jokes?

Obama is more peaceful than Sima Samar, women’s rights campaigner in Afghanistan; Ingrid Betancourt – Liz Jones look-alike held hostage for six years; “Dr. Denis Mukwege – helps Congolese women who’ve been gang raped; Handicap International and Cluster Munition Coalition; Hu Jia – Chinese human rights worker serving a three-and-a-half-year prison term for ‘inciting subversion of state power'”; and Wei Jingsheng – endured 17 years in Chinese prisons for championing reforms.

And countless others people who have never tried to kill anyone.

Obama wins! And the media finds something to skewer Obama on and laugh at:

* “When you look at my record,” said SNL actor Fred Armisen as President Obama. “It’s very clear what I’ve done so far — and that is nothing.”

* Obama wins 2009 AKC “Best of Show”

* Today’s Nobel Peace Prize announcement raises the question: Is a negative caricature of President Obama now fully developed?

One thing that eluded Mr. Obama during his presidential campaign was that he was never successfully lampooned by the Republican Party…

Well, today’s announcement – while totally out of the president’s control – finally may have handed his critics their own “Mission Accomplished” moment Hot Air

* It’s the comedy gold that the blogosphere as well as the late night talk show hosts and “Saturday Night Live” will exploit to no end. In fact, there’s already a joke formula that’s exploded: fill in the blank with your favorite award (Oscar, American Idol, etc.) and say that President Obama has already won it without accomplishing anything to deserve itAce

Andrew Bolt has breaking news:

More sensational news from Norway: Barack Obama has won the 100 metres at the London Olympics, to be run in 2012.

IOC spokesman Che Riviera said the committee had decided to award Obama the gold medal after the president made a series of speeches in which he promised to run an astonishing 9.5 seconds.

Obama captured the world’s attention, and expressed values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population,” Riviera said. “We would hope this will enhance what he is trying to do.”

Ezra Klein: Obama also awarded Nobel prize in chemistry. “He’s just got great chemistry,” says Nobel Committee.

* Barack Obama’s Teleprompter: Big Guy says Bill Clinton called and was gracious in defeat; offered to fly Kanye West over 4 the Nobel awards ceremony.

* They are handing him the Nobel Peace Prize because he isn’t George Bush.”

Obama is not the first to achieve peace in no time:

* There is Henry Kissinger. His receipt of the prize in 1973, in the wake of his war crimes against Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, prompted Tom Lehrer to famously remark: “Political satire became obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Prize.”

And not forgetting:

A man is driving down a country road, when he spots a farmer standing in the middle of a huge field of grass. He pulls the car over to the side of the road and notices that the farmer is just standing there, doing nothing, looking at nothing.

The man gets out of the car, walks all the way out to the farmer and asks him, “Ah excuse me mister, but what are you doing?”

The farmer replies, “I’m trying to win a Nobel Prize.”

“How?” asks the man, puzzled.

“Well, I heard they give the Nobel Prize . . . to people who are out standing in their field.”

Importantly:

ktumulty: Has anyone asked Kanye West what he thinks of Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize?

Well, have they..?
