GI Joe not nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

In a shock dicision, the NY Sun nominates General Petraeus instead:

Vice President Gore is being mooted for the Nobel Peace Prize, but our nominee is General Petraeus. This is only a slight departure from our annual editorial calling for the Norwegians to award the prize to GI Joe. We’ve been advancing that idea ever since reading about it in an essay by Neil Kressel, a professor in New Jersey. It has seemed to us that the American GI is the greatest force for peace in the world today, and we say that without the slightest bit of irony.

Which makes it twice as funny.
In the hope that it is a joke, I have put this post in the Humour section.
