In a surprise move the Nobel Peace prize committee has announced that this year’s recipient is American President Donald Trump for his work on the reunification of the Swedish pop group ABBA.
“President Trump has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to reunite ABBA,” said a Spokesperson for the Nobel Peace prize. “He has been sliding into all four members DM’s and urging them to reunite in a hope that a reformed ABBA will bring peace and happiness to the world.”
When reached for comment on his Nobel Peace prize President Trump said of the honour: “You’re surprised, I told you I would do great things and what could be greater than reuniting ABBA. After all they sing my favourite song of all time, Money, Money, Money.”
“I was hoping to have them reunite in time for my inauguration but I tell you that Benny is a real hold out. I like that guy I might make him my new Secretary of State.”
Asked what is next for the President now that he has reunited ABBA and North and South Korea the President replied: “I’m going to catch up with Pink Floyd. Those guys made a wall year’s ago so maybe they can knock another wall up for me.”
