Hello, you’ve reached the Weekend White House. Your call is important to us…
Hello, may I speak to President Obama please?
Oh I’m sorry, but it’s Saturday. President Obama is at his weekend job, doing college basketball commentary.
Oh. Okay, then Vice President Biden, please.
I’m sorry, but Mr. Biden is with the president at the game, making faces and playing thumbsies.
Well then, who’s in CHARGE?
That would be someone from the Past Presidents Temp Agency. Let’s see, I believe today it’s former president Bush.
That one who couldn’t talk right?
No, his father, the OTHER former president Bush. Hold for a moment please. Hello, you’ve reached the Weekend White House. Your call is important to us…
