Modest Proposal: Rename Nobel To The Obama Prize

The name Nobel is clearly not as lofty or exalted as the name Obama. Isn't it time the rename the Nobel Peace Prize to the Obama Peace Prize?

Alfred Nobel invented dynamite. He clearly doesn't deserve to have his name honored by its association with such an, er, exalted prize. Whereas the Nobel Prize committee clearly thinks that Obama, without yet even accomplishing much, is a morally different and very very unusual human being. What better person to name a famous prize after?

Every time someone wins the Obama Prize we will be reminded what the prize represents. Fitting, no?

Also, the change of name should be made retroactive, so that the first official Obama laureate will be President Barack Obama.

Eric Johnson said at October 9, 2009 11:39 PM:

This just in. The word "peace" has itself been changed to "obama." Accordingly, the Obama Peace Prize will now be the Obama Obama Prize. Keynote speaker at the upcoming re-christening of the erstwhile Nobel endowment: inaugural Obama Obama laureate Barack Obama.
