Obama Sends Predator Drone to Pick Up Nobel Peace Prize

OSLO, NORWAY (The Borowitz Report) - Responding to criticism about his receiving this year's Nobel Peace Prize, President Barack Obama today sent an unmanned predator drone to Norway to pick up the prize for him.

Mr. Obama's decision to have an unmanned bomber plane accept the Peace Prize raised eyebrows in diplomatic circles, as well as concerns about whether the plane was accurate enough for such a delicate mission.

"We know there's a possibility that the predator drone might miss Norway altogether and instead hit Finland," said White House press spokesman Robert Gibbs. "Having said that, an unmanned plane is still more accurate than one manned by a couple of Northwest pilots."
