Nobel Ways

"Dear members of the Academy, let's admit it, this time you've overdone it. I mean, come on, first you give the prize to a black man, then to a Jewish writer. Now you give it to a clown. What gives?"

- Dario Fo, to the members of the Nobel Academy. Quoted by John Sutherland in his piece on acceptance speeches of Nobel Literature Prizewinners.
