You wouldn't be surprised if this was true:

Gore Wins Nobel Prize, High Court Gives It to Bush
(2007-10-12) — Although former Vice President Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize this week for his work as a global-warming performance artist, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled early today that President George Bush would receive the gold medal, the diploma and the $750,000.
Mr. Bush, who was narrowly defeated by Mr. Gore in the 2000 presidential election, thanked Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito "for swinging the vote my way, and helping me to join the pantheon of great Nobel laureates."
And then there is this by Mike Keefe, of the The Denver Post
Iirc, there were similar cartoons in 2000 already and again after Al got the Oscar.
So it's just joke recycling time.
