Which is the real live Obama?

January 21, 2009

Blog Guy, did you go to the inauguration yesterday?

You bet. See this crowd shot? I’m behind those people. It was an amazing experience, and I got some nice shots of the new President.

You’re a huge imbecile! That first one is cardboard, the second is wax, and the third is just some Indonesian guy who LOOKS like Barack Obama.

Really? Huh. I guess that would explain some things.

Like what?

Like why that dude didn’t have any security guards, and why he borrowed $20 from me, and why he asked “Where can an out-of-towner have a good time in this dump?”

Gosh, then I can sure see why you confused him with the new President of the United States. Sheesh.

Well it sound like the sort of questions Clinton would have asked when he was in office!
