While going through my archives in order to export them to this new address, I came across this orphaned post, which I apparently wrote in a fit of disgust with Nobel Prize speculation but wisely decided not to publish:
The 2011 Nobel Prize for Literature has been awarded to Moe Howard. Asked about the apparent slight to himself and long-time partner Larry Fine, Moe's brother Curly proclaimed them "victims of coicumstance."
Moe is widely known for the use of such literary devices as the eye poke, the hair pull, and the windmill konk to the head. Although many observers believed the Prize might go to the American writer, Phillip Roth, Roth himself commented that "nobody can follow up the underhanded punch to the stomach with a devastating blow to the forehead quite like Moe."
Moe is expected to accept the Prize in person, but sources say he has promised to avoid pincering the nose of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden with a pair of scissors.
Although for all I care about who wins this prize, they may as well give it to Moe. (All due respect to Curly.)
