Energized by his Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama scored his first diplomatic victory today -- a historic truce between the survivors of Flight 815 and their arch-nemesis, the Others, on ABC's Lost.
The accord was met with jubilation at Nobel headquarters in Norway.
"Critics said we gave Obama the award prematurely, but we based our decision on a FlashForward vision from April 29, 2010, in which the president had successfully transcended a rip in the space-time continuum to end the war over this mysterious tropical island," a Nobel spokesman said.
Lost executive producer J.J. Abrams also welcomed the peace treaty, saying he and the show's writers had no idea how they were going to end the series otherwise.
Obama negotiated the truce at a beer summit attended by Benjamin Linus, Charles Widmore and the ghost of John Locke.
With peace restored to the island, Obama said he would turn his attention to obtaining the anti-aging secret of Lost character Richard Alpert. "If we can just figure out how to eliminate the excessive-eyeliner side effect, Alpert's youth formula could solve America's health care crisis," the president said.
