image for World Peace scrapped due to lack of interest on Digg
A swede

The opportunity to create a lasting world peace, last night slipped through the grasp of society, because it failed to get a front page mention on Digg.

Nobel Peace prize winner and orchestrator of the failed plan Dr Christopher Poole said of the development 'It's a real shame, we had got some kind of agreement between the Arabs and the Jews, implemented some financial rescue packages to the african nations and set forth a human rights charter for all global citizens. Sadly we were edged out of the media spotlight by a particularly funny LOLcat and a dark, yet touching XKCD comic. There was also an article about how to get the letter 'J' to appear on your computer screen.'

Due to the failure of the mainstream media to do any journalism whatsoever, appearing on the Digg front page has become the sole focus of any endeavour, the world over.

"If it's not on the front page of Digg, then it doesn't really exist, it never really happened." said social commentator Rob Manuel. "For example did you know that Sweden exploded last week? I doubt you did. It wasn't on Digg because John McCain tied his shoelaces in an overtly racist manner. Shame really I quite liked Abba"

It is thought Dr Poole will redouble his World Peace efforts yet try to include web-based comics and talking cats in the process in order to get some public backing.
