Nihilist in Golf Pants Person Of The Year For 2008: The Sun

It’s big and hot and yellow and without it there would be no Barack Obama and now, once again, it is the Nihilist in Golf Pants Person of the Year. It is the Sun. The Sun started out four and half billion years ago as several million tons of hydrogen. Over the years it has converted about a fourth of that to helium and in the process provided the heat and light necessary to sustain the evolution that has culminated in Barack Obama.

Some may criticize our decision to name the Sun our person of the year over Barack Obama. This award is meant to encourage and not end the debate. But only a moron would fail to recognize that without the Sun and its life-giving nuclear fusion, there would be no Barack Obama.

Barack Obama flocks to beaches to sit out in the Sun. He is sad when it is hidden behind clouds. He breathes the oxygen it helps to produce via photosynthesis. Barack Obama loves the Sun and so do we here at Nihilist in Golf Pants, and that is why we name the Sun our person of the year for 2008.
