And The Nobel Peace Prize Goes to…

The Internet!” says the tuxedo-clad Nobel Peace Prize presenter.

Upon hearing her name, the Internet, dressed up in her best attire of a colorful table-based website, and with a flock of blue Twitter birds flying over head, seemed to be really surprised. She quickly got over the shock (thanks to multitude of fans updating the shock Wikipedia entries in her head), and strutted her way to the stage to accept her prize.

She really did look her best, didn't she?

She really did look her best, didn't she?

Oh, wow,” the Internet says, “I‘ve been around for a while but no one ever thought of nominating me for the prestigious Nobel Pea—”

The crowd interrupts her acceptance speech with loud and booming cheering: “W00t! W00t! W00t!

She flashes her dashing smile immediately lagging the yells of her fans. “Thanks guys,” she continues. “First and foremost, I’d like to thank my geeks. You have made my power possible. I’d also like to thank the great companies that have spent so much money, time and effort on the initiatives I carry: Mainly, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Twitter, and Firefox. To Microsoft, I say, all your base are belong to us.”

The crowd interrupts with more cheering.

The Internet waves her hand at them, “Oh, and I forgot Comic Sans. On parting notes, I’d also like to present this video about why I was nominated for this prize.”

Note: This “imagination exercise”, of what would happen if the Internet won the Noble Peace Prize, has not taken place. Just yet anyway. So far, the only thing that has happened was the nomination itself. She definitely deserves it more than Obama.

What do you think? Coolest or dumbest idea ever?

    I just love Ms. Internet's look (or is it Mrs.) :P

    As for your question, I think it's a cool and dumb idea at the same time! How can you really measure the real positive influence of the Internet as a whole? But on the other hand, the Internet has made it so much easier for people to come closer, learn about each other and help one another….

    Maybe social media would be nominated next time :)

    I think it does deserve a noble prize… No it is not a dumb idea… I mean they gave Obama a prize for all his broken promises… at least the Internet is doing a lot of things…
    On another note… I don't like your depiction of the internet…
