Noble Prize Gets Bob Dylan!


After years of eluding the Big Lit Prize, Mr. Bob Dylan was finally gotten by the Prize Committee yesterday. Expressing consternation upon hearing the news, Mr. Dylan reportedly said:
"I wish it was more meaningful, like the Noble Piss Prize, or somethin', but if I'd knowd this was gonna happen, I'd've taken worse care of myself so it wouldn't've had to've happened."
Reporters are still trying to confirm what this means and whether Mr. Dylan actually said it. As is so often the case with him, the word is as elusive as the man, as he is a man of his word.

Wow! Fantastic saying, only Master Bob Dylan reportedly said: "Nobel 🐠 Prize" , but for us we cannot blamed for his natural and truly honest and humility the truth is we knew it. *Bones*

Just in case there is any misunderstanding . . . the 'quote' is fabricated.

Excerpted from conversation.com =

No, Bob Dylan isn’t the first lyricist to win the Nobel

A Bengali literary giant who probably wrote even more songs preceded Dylan’s win by over a century. Rabindranath Tagore, a wildly talented Indian poet, painter and musician, took the prize in 1913.

The first musician (and first non-European) to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, Tagore possessed an artistry – and lasting influence – that mirrored Dylan’s.
