The Washington Post captions this picture "The chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Peace Prize Committee, Thorbjoen Jagland, shows a picture of 2009 Nobel peace prize laureate, Barack Obama, after the announcement of the winner in Oslo." I bet you guys can do better. Do you think that thing's signed?

An avid collector of Nobel Laureate Trading Cards, Thorbjoen Jagland shows off his Barack Obama rookie card. "I'm going to frame it and put it next to my 1922 limtited edition Niels Bohr on the wall behind me!" beamed Jagland, who has been fake tanning for the past year in anticipation of this photo.

"I have his birth certificate, too. Signature, raised seal, the whole nine yards. Barack Obama was really born in Norway."

the caption should read, "barack obama continues to be an inspiration for millions of people. he looks for ways to love his enemies, to extend olive branches, be a peacemaker....even when he is denigrated and humiliated for his efforts.
i am so proud that he has won this prize.
long live barack obama."
