image for Satire Revived as Gore Gets Peace Prize
A worthy winner means satirists can breathe again

Satire, once thought to have died when Dr Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, has been revived by the award going to peacenik and doom merchant Al Gore.

The former US vice-president won the 2007 Nobel peace prize for raising awareness of the links between world peace and climate change.

The Norwegian committee praised Mr Gore for his strong commitment to the struggle against climate change and its links with World War 3.

"He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted," the committee said.

Mr Gore said he was honoured by the award, and to confirm his peaceful intentions he donated the money to the Alliance for Climate Protection, which seeks to change public opinion about the urgency of dealing with the end of the world.

Dr Henry Kissinger was unavailable for comment, as was Tony Blair whose selfless quest for peace in Iraq brought him nothing but heartache. Still, better luck next year, Tony.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
