OSLO, NORWAY (The Borowitz Report) - In a remarkable break with tradition, the committee that awards the Nobel Peace Prize chose today to bestow that coveted honor on the Apple iPad.
It was believed to be the first time an electronic device has won the Peace Prize, which is usually awarded to a human being, experts say.
"We didn't want to fall prey to all of the hype surrounding the iPad," said Nobel committee chairperson Gustav Traavik, who waited at the Apple store in Oslo for over two hours to buy the device. "But it is sweet."
In the twenty-four hours since it was released, the iPad has been credited with an impressive list of accomplishments, including saving the newspaper industry, the publishing business, and Tiger Woods' marriage. More here.
