I'm Stumped And Baffled And Some Other Stuff
February 4, 2016

Today I learned that Donald J. Trump was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Yeah, the same Donald Trump who has insulted every race other than OWL (Old White Loser). Yeah, the same Donald Trump who instructs his followers to commit acts of violence against people at his rallies who disagree with him.

Peace Prize. Damn.

Verdelia says she’s never been nominated and she’s a lot more peaceful than Donald Trump. Well, except for that time she shot her second husband. In her defense, he was asking for it. I mean, there’s only so much dirty tee-shirt on the couch belching that a woman can endure. And it wasn’t like she didn’t warn him every day for two weeks. She did. He didn’t. Shame on ’em.

So, I looked up how this happens.

But a nomination and a prize are not the same. The Nobel committees invite thousands of people every year to nominate peace prize recipients. Hundreds of candidates normally reach the desk of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Okay that makes me feel a little better. Hell, I don’t suspect any of my friends know the address of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which explains why I have been inadvertently snubbed for this award.

But here’s what baffles me. The article goes on to say …

… and previous nominees have included Russian President Vladimir Putin, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, and U2 singer Bono.

Okay, so get irony. I mean it’s kinda funny to compare Donald Trump to Putin and Stalin. But Bono? What the dickens did Bono ever do to get compared to Putin, Stalin, and worst of all – Donald Trump? Best I know, Bono is a nice person.

That just baffles me.

I bet Bono is pissed-off, Honey. Hell, Verdelia is pissed off and she doesn’t even know who Bono is.
