That isn't a typo. The Nobel committee is actually considering Russian president Vladimir Putin for the Nobel Peace Prize - not a participation trophy. The same Peace Prize they gave to Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa.
A few caveats:
This isn't Putin's first nomination.
The committee will be taking Putin's recent expression of interest in Crimean real estate into account.
This year's list of nominees has a record 278 names on - including Edward Snowden and Pope Francis - meaning Putin's nomination hardly ensures him a win.
Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin were both nominated at one time, and neither of them won.
President Obama won, even though he's "really good at killing people."
Still, it does kind of make you wonder if the people on the committee are using a different definition of "peace" than the rest of us.
