Early today the Nobel Prize Committee announced that it had made a big mistake telling Barrack Obama that he would be awarded the Peace prize. In reality, the Committee explained, it had voted to award the prize to Malia and Sasha Obama, both more inspirational to the world than their tired old Dad.
"The Obama girls," the Nobel Committee further explained, "have a lot more great works ahead of them," and the President, who is getting some gray hair, after all, is winding down. "What embodies hope and a better future more to the world than two charming, intelligent, radiant youngsters with, literally, the world of infinite possibilities open before them?"
The Committee apologized for miscommunicating its intentions, offering kudos to the President, who, after all, is somewhat accomplished, but it was unequivocal in its announcement today that the Peace award should go to the freshest and smartest candidates, who despite living with driven over achieving parents, have shown that peace, prosperity, pet ownership and happiness can be attained by even the most unlikely of persons- those who are hounded by the press, made to excel at competitive schools, and of whom too much may be expected.
