Linguistic Field: Anthropological Linguistics
Abstract: To celebrate Alfred Nobel's munificence of 33 million Swedish kronor (approximately US$ 9.2 million) in his signed will of 27 November 1895 to posterity, I provide a brief overview on how scientists as well as other members of the society are portrayed by two American cartoonists, Sidney Harris and Jim Berry, on Nobel's 180th birth anniversary. Three cartoon categories are identified: (1) pseudo-hopes of scientists, (2) mockery of humorous achievement and (3) prestige enhancement. Apart from their recognized role as serving as a gold standard for gauging exceptional creativity, Nobel prizes also possess the merit as a source for cartoon humour.
