Spider Man will like this one:

“US singer Bob Dylan has been awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature, becoming the first songwriter to win the prestigious award. The 75-year-old rock legend received the prize “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.”

(He’ll never get the Nobel Prize for singing the Great American Songbook though)
