A Cave - Afghanistan

Osama Bin Laden has reportedly gone into deep shock after not being awarded the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.

The prize was instead awarded to the Grameen Bank and its creator, Muhammad Yunus of Bangladesh.

In a press conference in the Bangladeshee capital, Dhaka, Yunus said the award was completely unexpected and that he was surprised Bin Laden was awarded the prize.

"Osama, I think I know how he feels. It is a great honour to win this prize and I thought it would go hands down to him [Osama]. He has done so much for the world…some things horrible, some things great. We owe so much to him."

Bin Laden is now hiding in a cave, deep in Afghanistan, unable to eat and sleep after losing the prize.

"He is crying is eyes out," a close friend told The Spoof. "I have never seen him like this before, even when his father died. Actually, he was happy when his father died. All that money, you know."

Bin Laden's loss has caused outrage throughout the world, with many people asking why he missed out. Riots have been sparked in Jerusalem, New York, and Mecca with angry protesters burning flags and images of Nobel.

Akmal Sallie, not his real name, is a man we came across on the street said he thinks it went the right way, unlike many other people.

"Bin Laden, man, he has started too many wars! He makes Islam look bad, when in fact we are peace loving religion."

However, supporters of Bin Laden say he did not start the war, it was the Americans and he is Islamic so he must love peace.

"We are now demanding that that re-award the prize to our great peace-loving friend, Osama." This seems unlikely to happen.

Other likely contenders for the prize were US President George W. Bush, Adolf Hitler (posthumously) and The Wiggles.

The Wiggles were put out of contention nearly straight away after making racist comments near a hidden microphone. It apparently involved an African disabled child who wanted an autograph after one of the Wiggles popular stage shows.

Adolf Hitler was known to lose, apparently put on the list by a clerical error. George W. Bush put himself on the list.
