Dear President Bush,
We were very pleased to receive your application for the Nobel Peace Prize. However, we feel we must disqualify you due to your answer to Question One:
1. Have you started any wars?
_ Absolutely not!
_ Well, just the one. But I had a really good reason!
X Okay, so maybe two. And I did start a war on terror, but like that really counts.

The world has now jumped the shark.
Although, in all fairness kids, Nobel was the guy who invented dynamite. This whole debacle brings to mind one of my favourite quotes. "Political satire became obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize". -- Tom Lehrer
