You'd think the guy that killed Hitler and ended WWII should get one but that would be kind of awkward.

Decorus: Donald Trump Biggest fark up.


Is it possible to nominate him for an IgNobel somehow? Would he even notice the difference if he won?

They should give the Peace prize to Obama again, just for the lelz.

In early just to note that the deadline for all 2022 Nobel Prizes was... January 31.  So what's happened in Ukraine since February is relevant for next year's nominations.  The laureates about to be announced were nominated for things they did in 2021 or earlier.

FTA: Decades of uninterrupted peace

So we're ignoring the Balkans falling apart in the 80s, 90s and into the 00s or Russia trying to get the band back together since the fall of the Soviet Union?

Remember when Obama got a peace prize and proceeded to condone a cruise missile and drone strike war? Peppridge Farm remembers.

Its been more than a half decade since he bombed children, Putin is the clear winner....

My bet, as I suggested back in March, is no award this year for the peace prize. They've done this during wars in the past, to honor the dead, and for other reasons, and this year it feels like a time to abstain from awarding the prize and acknowledge that we are not peaceful right now.

The nominations closed, yes, but the decision was/will be made after, and the nominations are hugely farking numerous every year. Not to mention that Russia was posturing about invading Ukraine for several months before they actually did, so it was certainly on people's minds already.

Nobel prize winners can commit a little warfare, as a treat.

I put "Nobel Peace Prize Nominee" on my resume. The nominee list is sealed for 50 years.

Give the prize to Jose Andres. He'll put the money to good use.

Do they hand out Nobel priz3es for attempted insurrection?

I'm guessing the Noble prize for literature will go to Beyonce, and the Noble peace prize will go to whomever will become a dictator and oversee crimes against humanity as soon as he or she receives it.

Cardi B. The lyrics to "WAP" are the most sublime poetry of our age.

This is a brilliant suggestion

Salman Rushdie deserves the Peace Prize.

Nobel became a joke when they gave Obama an award for doing absolutely nothing beyond breathing.
