Obama and Homer Simpson

President Obama's recent Nobel Peace Prize reminds me of a great Simpsons episode, "Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes." In the episode (1991, 3rd season), Mr.Burns buys off Homer from a lawsuit by giving him an utterly fradulent award, the "First Annual Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence." Of course, Homer has done nothing at all to do deserve the award. At the ceremony, Lisa Simpson put it well: "This award is the biggest farce I ever saw."
