The Nobelest of Sitcoms

What pop culture association can I make with the announcement that Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is getting this year’s Nobel Peace Prize? Oh, only this one: Ms. Sirleaf is the aunt of Retta, better known to the parts of the world with good taste in TV as Donna Meagle on Parks and Recreation.

 This is the face of a Nobel Prize’s winner’s niece right here.

Also, unrelated but not really:

 Just because.

    Technically, she's only Sirleafs niece BY MARRIAGE. Sorry.

  2. Niece by marriage is still a niece. The lack of shared DNA between these women does nothing to decrease the awesomeness of this fact.
