The bar and grill is rightly world famous for its coveted Peace Prize, generally acknowledged as the only prize of its genre in the market which does not discredit its recipient. We stand by our record. Unlike our competitors, the Nobel Peace Prize and the Sydney Peace Prize, the Joint has never bestowed an award on some painted sneering apologist for war, hate and genocide. The Joint's peace prize is the prize you can be proud of. It is the prize you can put on the mantelpiece without embarrassment and tell your grandchildren about.
Earlier recipients of the Geoffff's Joint Peace Prize include such enormous contributors to world peace as Israel's security fence (the most successful and enduring peace initiative in the Middle East since Begin and Sadat) and the US Navy (for taking out the foulest terrorist in history and making and keeping the peace since 1941).
With precedents like that this is not an award that can be tossed around like confetti. Therefore it is not lightly that this blog announces that the award goes to:
Guns N' Roses !!!
For the band's concert in Tel Aviv on 3 July 2012 when lead guitar, "Bumblefoot" Thal played Hatikva with the band then segueing into Don't You Cry.
The award will be emailed to the band's official website shortly.
Congratulations gentlemen. I've always liked you.
With nasty little creeps like Elvis Costello spitting sanctimonious contempt at free people determined to remain free, the sound of the Californian hard rock band shoving it to morally bankrupt musicians simpering for boycott and war is like a cold beer on a hot day.
