Hello? Mr. President, is that you?

January 5, 2009

Man, I hope that preacher fella doesn’t recanize me. I owe him money. Please let him think I’m some OTHER guy with Secret Service guards!

Maybe if I tilt my head way down and don’t make eye contact, he won’t notice me. Or he’ll think I’m still prayin’….

I know, I’ll just start talkin’ into my lapel, and he’ll think I’m usin’ Blue Tooth.  “Hello, hello, can ya hear me now?”

“Doh! I’m still wearin’ my nametag!”

I know I was bad and did wrong, but please let my brother, Jeb, be President.

It appears the the attention of both men is being directed downward. Perhaps a pardon seeking supplicant needing both religious and secular favors was prostrating him/herself at the moment of shutter release?

I was thinking the puppet master fell asleep during the prayer and let go of the strings.

This is just sad, the man is our president for goodness sack, if you don’t agree with him he deserve respect. I am sure if you were followed around with a camera I could get a bunch of pictures that make you look stupid too!

Yes, Tom, there might be stupid pictures of anyone if they were followed around with a camera. And if they were famous they might be posted on a humorous web site, such as this one. And I am sure the he might deserve respect, but as I said, and as so many other have said, this is a humorous blog, it is supposed to be amusing. And it is often quite amusing. I think this is amusing. If you don’t get the joke, go to a serious site for your news, not this one, for goodness sack.

@ Tom “Our” president. This is the WORLD wide web there’s people from other countries here. Me I’m from US and I did not vote for him. But Tom I live in a country that says I don’t have to like or respect him.That’s why it’s the land of the free and the home of the brave.
