And the Winner Is …




previous post: God, the Devil, and David



  1. Yep, having read the comments, I’ll vote racist too. Constructive criticism is one thing, but being so utterly obsessed (and so ANGRY) over someone’s colour sort of moves an argument into the KKKolumn.

  2. Boz, #20 and #33 are the two most insightful comments on this page.

    Personally, I think the prize should be for more than just promising to do stuff, you should actually achieve some of it first. They could always have given it to him next year if he followed through on his Abu Graihb promise.

  3. Kathleen nailed it.

  4. Soo.. Obama “if thats spelled right. and I don’t even care if it really is”

    What in the Hell has Obama really done for our country that deals with peace and for him to win a Nobel Prize.. *Stop this war….?? ?? UUmmmm NOOO! … Gandhi has done more peace making in HIS LIFE ….than obama has SINCE HE’S been IN OFFICE! If anyone should deserve such an award its Gandhi!

  5. Wade… your point makes no sense.

    “Gandhi has done more peace making in HIS LIFE ….than obama has SINCE HE’S been IN OFFICE!”

    Of course someone has done more of something throughout their whole life than someone who has had less than a year.

  6. So, you mean it actually DOES make sense. So much sense it is not worth pointing it out.

    Correction Fail.

  7. “If anyone should deserve such an award its Gandhi!”

    Wade, buddy… hate to break it to you but… Gandhi’s dead.

  8. And what’s the deal with the inventor of TNT gving out peace prizes anyway?

  9. Incidentally, nominations for the Nobel peace prize closed on February 1st, 11 days after Obama took office.

  10. Ghandi has not won
    But Barrak and Henry have.
    What the hell is peace?

  11. GANDHI

    What the hell is spelling?

  12. What the hell is ‘get a fucking life dude’?

  13. i was wrong the entire time. i have autism too.

  14. People don’t always win a Nobel Peace prize for their accomplishments–many people win them for their great efforts. The American people chose Obama as their president based on his platform and ideals. He talked about building better international relations through diplomacy, taking steps towards abolishing nuclear weapons, promoting equality and civil rights, and a lot of other high-reaching goals. Almost all of the things he’s promised can’t be accomplished in a day or a month or probably even years, but he’s working to lead America towards the vision that got him elected. I think that’s a pretty big deal, and worth recognizing and being proud of, as an American.

  15. Alison, talking about things and promising to do things is really not the same thing as actually acheiving them. I would agree that all the things Obama promises are great, and I hope that he achieves them. However, he hasn’t really done anything yet. Let’s wait and see if he actually accomplishes what he hopes to and if he does, give him a Nobel Peace Prize then.

    It’s like me saying that over the next 4 years I plan on inventing a way to make cars run on water and expecting to win the Nobel Physics Prize.

    Morgan Tsvangirai should have won it.

  16. Isaac, you are so right!!

  17. I didn’t realise that Lamebook’s comments section was now a political forum.

    You people are so boring. Please find another site to post your mind-numbing, repetitive drool on. I want to come on Lamebook to laugh, not to be sent to sleep. Where are the funny comments gone!?

    Obama has won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. None of your annoying whining is going to change that, so just get over it! None of you are important enough to make any difference whatsoever, so just shut up already; you’re all so aggravating I could scratch my eyes out!

  18. Obama=Socalist….you know, someone from Southern California, it’s about time something good came out of there.

  19. Please continue the political talk.

    PS. Who comes on an internet comment section and expects to NOT fine this?

  20. Thats funny how he got it since he was only in office for eleven days when the voting ended. They gave it to him because he is a negro and weak. I wouldnt be surprised if another country attacks us again like 9/11. They know he will just try to sit down and have a beer with the terrorist. Just like that asshole professor that should of been shot by that cop for trying to break into a house, then smarted off to a cop. Lets have a beer, it will all be ok.

  21. Wow. I can understand you not feeling like he should’ve won the won the award, but damn. Give this man a break. He’s been in office for almost a year now, he cant make things better with a snap of his fingers. If McCain was in office, I dont believe you people would be saying the same things. It’ll be “He’s trying” or something that will take the slack of him. Honestly, I’m tired of the Obama bashing. That “negro” won the prize. Get over it. Were you in the running for a peace prize? No. Before he got into the office, he was a political figure. Get out of here.

    And about that “asshole” professor trying to break into a house… THAT WAS HIS FUCKING HOUSE!

  22. @hmmm hater

    Wait, who comes on to a jocular internet site and DOES expect it to be bombarded by uptight, politically-driven fanatical comments? My assumption is that this site is to laugh at the lame people who post lame or humorous things, not to go into detail about our political beliefs.

    I think this may be what you’re looking for:

    Now shut up and stop boring me.


  24. I just love how people are making this into a personal attack on Obama, like he asked for the award, or forced them into giving it.

    Jeez, the man said himself that he doesn’t feel like he deserves it.

    We get it. You don’t like him. Get over it already.

  25. @bookworm.
    We get it you voted for the disaster and now you take every insult or negative comment personally. Your bad.

  26. Allison, you are right about one thing: “almost all the things he promised can’t be accomplished.” Period.

  27. I’m not sure the Nobel committee got this right.

    But if there’s a new way, I’ll be the first in line. But it had better work this time.

  28. I promised to reconcile String theory, Quantam theory, Newtonian physics and Relativity in one simple set of equations and I didn’t get a Nobel prize. And I’m BLACK! This sucks.

  29. littlefoot said “having been involved with psychology and physics for the last several years i know that there are people that were more deserving than him.”

    Hey moron. A psychologist or physicist isn’t going to get the nobel price for peace moron. They would get it in psychology or physics. Idiot. Maybe there were people more deserving than obama, he only received it for his rhetoric. However undeserving, it’s good for the country. But, that doesn’t mean you can be an idiot and not know there are separate nobel prices for separate things.

  30. @justsomedude

    How is it you know there are multiple PRIZES and yet repeatedly refer to them as PRICES?
    Good for the country? It doesn’t solve hunger, create jobs or protect natural resources… where’s the good? It certainly doesn’t make us LOOK good.

  31. ATM you said pretty much the same thing I was thinking. Plus why would a psychologist or a physicist not be able to get a Nobel Peace Prize? Nothing says you have to be a politician to get the Peace Prize.

  32. @justsomedude:

    This is just one example, but in 1970, an agronomist named Norman Borlaug was given the Nobel Peace Prize for developing a heartier, more sustainable strain of wheat. His invention is estimated to have saved billions of lives. Please do a little research next time you try to get “smart”.

  33. Wow… and I thought the idiots were on FB…

  34. Me too until i saw ur comment

  35. Do you even know what Rickrolling is? That has nothing to do with this. Die.

  36. @rick rolld

    you just got rick rolld…

  37. the funny thing is that socialists want to “strengthen internationalism and connections between people…”

  38. i wish obama would just get us out of the war already and atleast fulfill that promise. we could be out of iraq in 2 weeks if congress would just stop funding it… ugh 🙁

  39. @Paolah
    If you create a mess, you can’t just leave it, first you have to clean up. The only way the war will have any positive effect on the Iraqi people is by making sure the country has a stable government and the safety of the people can be assured. By leaving the country to fast, you risk destabilizing the country and all the sacrifices and deaths will be in vain.

    @ all
    There is a difference between being nominated for and getting the NPP. The winner is chosen in October not in February, the period in between is used to evaluate the nominees. But just by electing Obama the world got a whole lot better …

  40. NPP=useless

    made by the person who made dynamite (a weapon)
    Given to
    the person who discovered uranium
    the creator of the a-bomb

    I thought it was for peace.

  41. The dynamite was invented to make mining safer. not his fault it was used for other purposes. but that was the legacy that he was going to be left with so he started the nobel prize to leave a better legacy. and the guy that discovered uranium didnt invent the a bomb either. thats like saying that benjamin franklin invented the taser.

  42. Minus Kevin I love them all…HAHAHA!!!!!!
