They’re just now questioning the “peace” cred of some of the past recipients?

The nomination deadline for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize has expired amid renewed criticism the award committee has drifted away from the selection criteria established by the prize’s founder.

Stockholm’s County Administrative Board, which supervises foundations and trusts in the city, is investigating claims the Nobel Foundation has widenened the scope of the prize to a point where it no longer reflects Alfred Nobel’s will.

Unless Alfred Nobel’s will was to give his Peace Prize to a terrorist, an appeasing failure of an ex US president who emboldens thugs around the world, a enviro scam artist and a president who had done nothing up to that point except read speeches from a teleprompter and has since turned into a killing machine, they might want to re-visit the criteria.

    My question is, if they "discover" that the prize has been awarded to those who have not earned them will they strip them of the prize?

    I have serious doubts any recipient would suffer the embarrassment of forfeiture of the honor, rather, I can see the Nobel Cmt. struggling over just how much to pay ALL living recipients for the embarrassment of this investigation !

    Wait. You mean Alfred Nobel didn't intend for the Prize to be awarded with the purchase of a Happy Meal?!
    I'm shocked.

  4. Truesoldier on February 1st, 2012 4:37 pm

    I doubt it either, so why even bother with an investigation then?

  5. backwoodsconsr on February 1st, 2012 4:46 pm

    Nor did he intend for it to be awarded to people who are a couple of fries short of a Happy Meal.

    Ha haa to bofya !!

  7. SignPainterGuy on February 1st, 2012 5:30 pm

    It`ll be no more than a one-trick dog-n-pony show to make a show of proving their decisions were legit ! Nothing will change !

  8. Truesoldier on February 1st, 2012 5:51 pm

    That is what I am expecting as well. What would be real news is if they actually did strip them of their prizes.

    The schadenfreude would be absolutely delicious !!

    Come on! The inventor of dynamite endowing a peace prize? This was Alfred Nobel's joke all along! That Fred, what a card!

  11. backwoodsconsr on February 1st, 2012 11:43 pm

    But dynamite has peaceful uses. Where would the career of Jimmie Walker have been without it?

    Firecracker or nitro glycerine just doesn`t roll off the tongue the same, does it ?

  13. swede on February 1st, 2012 11:59 pm

    You can win a Nobel now in a box of Cracker Jacks. That or a really cool compas. I'd prefer the compas – at least you'd know which way you're going.

    TNT is passe. These days PETN and plastiques are all the rage for the discriminating Jihadi.

    Where is that bridge in your icon? Looks familiar but I can't place it.

    Considering that I was referring to a TV show from the '70s, I wondered how many people would catch it. It doesn't surprise me that you did, you old geezer.

  16. SignPainterGuy on February 2nd, 2012 12:19 am

    Youth and talent are no match for age and treachery ! ;-)

  17. backwoodsconsr on February 2nd, 2012 12:19 am

    A compass from a box of Cracker Jacks might work. One from the Nobel committee would probably pull to the left.

  18. SignPainterGuy on February 2nd, 2012 12:20 am

    Good question; I`ve been wondering too !

  19. Pasadena Phil on February 2nd, 2012 12:28 am

    PETN. A crowd pleaser for the ages.

  20. swede on February 2nd, 2012 12:39 am

    Continuous left rudder keeps you going in circles. Yup, that's progressive alright.

  21. SignPainterGuy on February 2nd, 2012 12:49 am

    `Splains some dizziness, don`t it ?!

    According to the AP article they can strip the last 3 recipients.

    "If the Stockholm County Administrative Board, which supervises foundations in Sweden’s capital, finds that prize founder Alfred Nobel’s will is not being honored, it has the authority to suspend award decisions going back three years – though that would be unlikely and unprecedented, said Mikael Wiman, a legal expert working for the county."

    And DWS hair……

  24. Truesoldier__ on February 2nd, 2012 2:51 pm

    Not to mention you can make cute little animal shapes out of plastique and still detonate it latter. Try that with TNT.

  25. SignPainterGuy on February 2nd, 2012 3:36 pm

    No one told her not to fool with electrical outlets and extension cords in the rain !?

    Dynamite has been a useful accessory for fisherman's, and more than one tree stump has been removed with it.
