    What a headline!
    Okay, I changed the word prize. But hey... anything so damn ironic has to be bought and paid.

    President Barack Obama has said the US must uphold moral standards when waging wars that are necessary and justified, as he accepted his Nobel Peace Prize.
    In his speech in Oslo, he defended the US role in Afghanistan, arguing the use of force could bring lasting peace.
    He also said his accomplishments were slight compared with other laureates.

    Mr Obama was given the prize in October for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples".
    Thursday's ceremony in the Norwegian capital came days after Mr Obama announced he was sending 30,000 extra US soldiers to the war in Afghanistan.

    So, what are today's other headlines?

    His next nobel prize will be for economics. You know, Mr. unsustainable has saved the day don't ya know. In fact, I have decided to follow his lead by taking out as many loans as I can and spending my way out of debt.

    The report was prepared for the Ecuadorian government.

    I see the passive voice was skillfully used to avoid saying who prepared the report.

    The Swedes are obviously on some very powerful hallucinogenic drugs.

    VERY powerful....the effects seem to last weeks and weeks....
