In a bizarre plot twist, Reuters reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Despite the immense political controversy and violence that we’ve seen in Russia and now the complications involving Ukraine, Putin is in a position to possibly join the ranks of peace advocates such as Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Theresa and Nelson Mandela.

No, we don’t understand it either.

While we wait to see which of the 278 candidates actually win the prize, we checked out what Twitter had to say on the matter.

Some people can predict the future.

We’ll go ahead and add this one to the list.

What a perfect comparison.

We wish this was a joke.

Can’t Leo win anything??

It seems Putin’s list of talents is growing.

Harsh? Maybe…

Let’s not forget to congratulate him on the nomination.

And then some are just speechless.
