In an announcement, that surprised the world because it was so deserved, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize to the His Majesty, King of the Wuxi China Expatdom, Gorzo the Mighty.
In making the announcement, the Nobel Committee said the following:
The Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to focus on what it sees as the Gorzo the Mighty’s most important result: the successful struggle for peace and reconciliation, and for capitalism and human decency in the Wuxi China Expatdom. The stabilizing part played by King Gorzo, after the dark time of the reign of the Ayatollah of Mordor, the former King of Wuxi, has helped to transform the Wuxi China Expatdom from a Expatdom of war, pasty white legs, and caramel balls to an Expatdom of peace, free markets, and incredible Friedmanian Economic Growth. By adopting an Economic Policy based on the Economics of Milton Friedman, the 1976 Nobel Prize for Economics Winner, instead of Paul Krugman, the undeserving 2008 Nobel Prize for Economics Winner, the Wuxi China Expatdom ruled by King Gorzo, has achieved what Neville Chamberlain and Barack Obama, could only dream of — peace in our time!
Observers think the Nobel Committee made the unprecedented decision of awarding the Peace Prize to someone who actually deserved it because of the shame brought on the committee by giving the prize to Barack Obama and then further brought on by a crazed notion of awarding it to the European Union.
For his part, His Majesty, King Gorzo the Mighty said he was proud to receive the award, but that real credit for winning the award had to be given to all Wuxi Expats, especially Archduke Sir Harry Moore. "I couldn’t have done it without good old Harry, the King of Archdukiness! Through his efforts at reconciliation and the efforts of many Wuxi Expats, except of course, the reactionary blogger Wussie Andrew, the WCE is a place of blissful and masculine peace and quiet!" said His Majesty.
