News, but not the serious kind
How do you stay so thin, Mr. President?
Blog Guy, I see President Obama seems to be going to every country in Europe.
Get a clue! Obama himself went to a couple of important countries, then flew home. Now they’re just shipping cardboard cutouts around so the leaders of other nations can have photo opportunities.
The cutouts stand in front of a cardboard version of Air Force One, pose with some locals, and then they’re quickly put back into their flat travel carton.
But aren’t the leaders of those countries insulted?
They know the score. Having their photo taken with a cardboard Obama surrounded by cardboard Secret Service agents impresses their citizens. They even pay a hefty fee for the “presidential visit.”
I’m stunned! So do they pay a per-photo amount for the cardboard Obama?
No, it’s um, a flat fee. So to speak.
Damn! I should have seen that one coming!
Maybe you’re not cutout for this.
