Oh The Irony

So, Alice Munro won the Nobel Prize.


...I wonder what David Gilmour thinks about it.


("But I can only teach stuff I love. I can’t teach stuff that I don’t, and I haven’t encountered any Canadian writers yet that I love enough to teach."


"I’m not interested in teaching books by women. Virginia Woolf is the only writer that interests me as a woman writer, so I do teach one of her short stories. But once again, when I was given this job I said I would only teach the people that I truly, truly love. Unfortunately, none of those happen to be Chinese, or women.")


ETA: Actually, this is hilarious in hindsight, considering who won it last year.
