And the Winner Is …

by William Jackson on 2004-09-21

I woke up three days ago with the best idea for a flash cartoon: Awarding Nobelprizes in the style of the Academy Awards, or if youʼre daring, the MTV MovieAwards.

Stephen Hawking would MC.

“This yearʼs Nobel Prize in Chemistry goes to … Professor vonBruenhousen, for his work identifying inherent chemical differences betweenTexans and other Americans! Thatʼs as awesome as those full-color illustrationsof light cones in my Brief History of Time!”

“Iʼd like to thank the University, and all the little people who volunteered formy tests. And the Texans, too.”

Well, the idea seemed really funny when I woke up that morning.
