I voted for the headline. How else you gonna get the average joe to read about the f*cking Nobel Prize for literature?

Own the headline!  It's GREAT!

Seems like a good pick, and certainly African literature needs more recognition.  It's certainly better than giving it to a dude who thinks the Serbians didn't do anything wrong in Bosnia like a couple of years ago.

The cartoon was called the Tanzanian White Devil, and the Nambian Ignorant Devil.

The Namblan Paedo Devil, was French I think.

There are still quite a few authors who are still bizarrely snubbed, and at the top of the list is the creator of the character with your nick.
