From the Alternate Universe

The Spanish news agency EFE reported last week that Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, who led the Sandinista regime in that country from 1979-1990, was awarded the 2009 Muammar Al Gaddafi Human Rights Award by the Libyan dictatorship.

Past recipients of the award, which includes a $250,000 cash prize, include Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.

Unfortunately, this is not a joke.
