Joke and Joe: Nobody's Nobel

Recommended Posts

Who is the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature 2012?

Can't Say.

Come on. Tell me!

Can't Say.

Why not? please!

Can't Say.

F**k you!


The Nobel Foundation announced today:

The Nobel Prize in Literature 2012 was awarded to Mo Yan "who with hallucinatory realism merges folk tales, history and the contemporary".

Mo Yan, the name in Pinyin means "Can't Say" in Chinese language.


English, like Chinese, is very hard to learn well. Neowin is an international forum, so I'd like to see whether those ESL members feel this "story" funny or not.

As for native English speakers, no wonder the joke might be a failure.

That's clever. I didn't know that.
