Dennis Rodman Deserves the Nobel Peace Prize? He Thinks So!

What do Theodore Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., Henry Kissinger, Mohamed Anwar Al-Sadat, Mother Theresa, Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Yasser Arafat, Nelson Mandela, and Dennis Rodman all have in common?

If enough people agree with Dennis Rodman they will all be Nobel Peace Prize winners.

Rodman, never one to shy away from the public eye or from patting himself on the back, has done it again. In Sports Illustrated's 'Where are they now?' issue the eccentric former basketball player and reality television show personality states that he thinks he should at least be in the top three when it comes to awarding the Nobel Peace Prize this year.

Okay. Take this time to laugh. I know I will.

It seems that Rodman thinks he accomplished something by becoming besties with Korean dictator Kim Jun-un. I'll admit that the guy deserves a little credit for making the trip and putting a slightly different light on the dictator.

No wait--that credit should go to the HBO execs that created the Vice series and tabbed Rodman to go over there as well as all the hilarious SNL skits that were inspired by Rodman and Kim Jon-un.

Ask Rodman though and he'll tell you that he thinks he's done something great.
“My mission is to break the ice between hostile countries,” Rodman says. “Why it’s been left to me to smooth things over, I don’t know...Keeping us safe is really not my job; it’s the black guy’s [Obama's] job. But I’ll tell you this: If I don’t finish in the top three for the next Nobel Peace Prize, something’s seriously wrong.”
What Dennis is failing to consider here is that his work needs to do more than keep him in the public eye for it to be worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Last I checked that's all it has done.
