New York, NY -
With the announcement this morning that The Internet would be considered in the running for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize, and by proxy, all sites within the internet, celebrations have begun at the headquarters of the cyber-universe, Rockworms.Com.
“I knew we could do it,” said Rockworms.com founder Craig Key. “I knew that if we just stayed online long enough, it didn’t matter what we did, just stay online long enough, we would get our just deserves.” Key then successfully took a body-shot out of his own navel.
Rockworms.com (along with the rest of The Internet, which according to a 2009 estimation, now covers as many as perhaps 450 web pages) is amongst the record of 237 Nobel Peace Prize nominees. Those considered are both individuals as well as organizations. Rockworms plans to appeal to be considered in both categories.
“I don’t know what to say. Its a considerable thrill, just to be nominated,” Rockworms senior editor Adam Cozens was quoted. “However, I really think it would be a travesty if we lost. I have already begun rearranging my mantle for the plaque…they do give you a plaque, right? Or is it a big gold belt?”
“It’s cool we got the nod, but I really don’t care about winning. Never have.” said Rockworms co-founder Kyle Flaherty. “As long as (Russian human rights activist) Svetlana Gannushkina doesn’t win, I’ll be happy.”
Rockworms will be announced the winner in May or something somewhere in Europe.
