Announcing The EU Humour Awards

Let’s see now:

The EU has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

The EU has received the Nobel Peace Prize because it did NOTHING to end Turkey’s illegal and continuing 40-year occupation of the northern half of EU member state Cyprus.

The EU has received the Nobel Peace Prize because it did NOTHING to terminate Great Britain’s continued occupation of Gibraltar, which shares geographic contiguity with EU member state Spain, while Britain herself, an island state, is located far from Gibraltar.

The EU has received the Nobel Peace Prize because the British and Northern Irish succeeded in bringing about peace accords WITHOUT the involvement of the EU – specifically without the involvement of the EU – bringing decades of death and destruction to an end.

Either the people at the Nobel Awards Committee are really, REALLY bored, or they have an acute, bizarre sense of black humour.
