The Swedish Academy has been forced to award a special prize to the little brother of the winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics so that he doesn’t have to go home from the ceremony empty handed.
“The Swedish Academy is pleased to announce that the 2015 Nobel Prize for Physics has been won by Dr Christina Stoeger for her work on the characterisation of sub atomic particles,” said Academy chairman Sven Longstocking. “The Academy is also sort of pleased to announce that the 2015 Nobel Prize for Being A Good Little Brother has been won by Friedrich Stoeger for his work on doing his chores around the house.”
A hastily improvised Nobel Prize for Being A Good Little Brother was constructed out of a paper plate and a ribbon and awarded to 37 year old Friedrich by the King of Sweden.
“Friedrich was such a good little boy during the whole ceremony and only yelled out once that he was bored,” said proud mother Hannelore Stoeger. “We’ll be taking both of them out to Macdonalds after the ceremony as a reward for being a good scientist and a good little brother.”
The Nobel Prize for Literature will be awarded later this week to everyone who wrote a book this year, because it would be unfair to single out one writer as better than any of the others.
