    "Hey Stavros, I know you've been out of work for 18 months, and your sick mother has to make her own Tzatziki because you can't afford the store brand, but look on the bright side - at least the EU got the Nobel Peace Prize! Our entire continent is now $1.2 million richer! Your troubles are over!"

    I actually agree that the EU has been a force for peace. At least the old version of it, back when it was a free trade zone instead of a centrally planned mess.

    But I somehow doubt that's the reason why the Nobel committee thought they should get a pat on the back.

    Its an Orwellian prize, they gave it to UN peace keepers one year and if you have UN peace keepers in your country, you are in trouble. UN Peacekeepers do nothing but **** and kill the people in the name of peace. Obama won it while sending 40 thousand troops into Afghanistan and now he has the US in more wars than Bush. Its a 100% political thing.

    That's like telling an italian that Ragu is better than homemade, or Mrs T's perogies, for that matter.

    The point was that the mother had to make it herself even though she was sick.

    like that would stop them. My Ex girlfriend's of boat Italian grandmother had a heart attack less than a week before X-Mas and insisted on overseeing the 12 fishes prep and cooking.
