The most prematurely awarded group in pop-country history gained a few new distinctions this morning, as President Obama, also speaking on behalf of the Nobel Peace Prize committee and the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, presented the trio with a one-of-a-kind plaque celebrating their Nobel-worthy contribution to humanity in the form of uplifting hit “Hello World,” probable heroic military actions at some point in the future, and certain field-leading grace and style should they ever be reincarnated as canines.
