Bob Dylan Breaks Nobel Prize Silence
We interrupt our regularly scheduled services here on the Internet to report that Bob Dylan has broken his mysterious silence that followed the announcement that he had won the 2016 Nobel Prize for literature. Unfortunately his statement has created more confusion than it has dispelled.
"I am aware of the decision awarding me the Nobel Prize for literature." Mr Dylan's statement read. "I have decided to pass along my prize to a blogger named Feldenstein Calypso. His work writing the voluminous "Clerk Manifesto" is fully deserving of this prize and I feel it is the right thing to do to award it to him."
It remains unclear whether Mr. Dylan can, according to the rules of the Nobel committee, bequeath his prize to someone else.
It is also unclear whether Feldenstein Calypso's work is of a standard meriting a Nobel Prize. His work on the Internet is, apparently, so obscure the press have not yet been able to track it down.
