A REAL PEACE OF WORK: AL GORE AND THE IPCC WIN THE 2007 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE
Earlier this morning, Al Gore, along with the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in dispersing knowledge regarding the connection between human activities and global warming. Along with bragging rights, Gore and Co. will share $1.5 M in prize money, a commemorative gold medal, and a diploma. (Check out MTV’s article for the full story.)
Pardon us, but for an award as major as this the parting gifts seem a little run of the mill. The cash is chump change for Gore, (who will most likely give it Leonardo DiCaprio to ensure his next documentary appears in more than 5 theaters) and we can only imagine the how long the marathon rock-paper-scissors game will take to decide who gets to bring medal home.
For next year however, we strongly recommend including the following items in the kitty. Super cool and super fun, they’re sure to put a competitive fire in bellies of all the contestants.
