OSLO, NORWAY - The prestigious Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Oregon woman Jennifer Dunn for her momentous decision to place a "Coexist" bumper sticker on the back of her Subaru Forester.
"It is our honor to bestow the Nobel Peace Prize upon this brave humanitarian for her tireless work in tearing down all things that separate people across the world, and her successful efforts toward world peace and a united human race," Nobel committee president Berit Reiss-Andersen announced Friday. "We shudder to think what the world would be like if Miss Dunn had not had the courage to display to other drivers her desire for all religions to exist together. We know this - it would be a much different place, and a much more divided planet."
"This woman has literally done more to bring human beings together than any other individual or social movement in the history of the world," she added tearfully.
Reached by reporters at her home, Dunn said she was "honored" to be recognized on a global scale for her remarkable bumper sticker and is "really stoked."
"But honestly, I totally deserve it," she added. "Also, I just stuck a peace sign next to the coexist sticker, so I better get another award next year."
