Nobel Prizes

So Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for Literature.  I'm astonished. Is that the best lit can claim nowadays?

But then, they gave Paul Krugman one for Economics. 

Will a jingle writer win one in the future? I nominate whoever wrote "I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner."

It could morph to "I wish I was Anthony Weiner."


  1. I never liked Bob Dylans' music. Not then, not now.

    We had girl friends that would, when they wanted to get out of the house at night, put Dylan on the stereo and crank it up. Soon voices would ring out, "TURN THAT SHIT OFF AND GET OUT OF HERE!"

  2. The Nobel Committee will announce next week that they were just kidding.

  3. That was a bad choice. Too much baby boomer stuff.
