The Weekend Desk Report

Remember when we all thought this was fucked up? We were so young then.

Market Update
Just when you thought things were looking up, the blue-chip Prestige Market completely collapsed.

Peace of my Heart
In awarding the Peace Prize to the European Union, the Nobel Committee cited the organization's impressive record of preventing its member states from beating the shit out of each other. Preventing them from beating the shit out of themselves? Not so much.

Peace of Cake
Of course, if you're not a member-state yet, there might be some unpleasantness to endure.

Chump Change
The really great part about this year's Nobel Peace Prize? The generous honorarium will keep Greece afloat for another 45 minutes.

Peace of Shit
So to recap: the principles of the Nobel Peace Prize are now best exemplified by rampant internal violence, whimsical financial mismanagement and flagrant disregard for the welfare of those not privileged enough to join the club? Send flowers now, folks. Rahm Emanuel will be your 2013 Nobel Peace Laureate.
