Finding Obama’s inner goof…

November 17, 2010


Out with it, Blog Guy. The blogosphere is abuzz over some new relationship between President Obama and your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop.

Okay, but don’t tell anybody else. As you may recall, when he first took office Obama remained aloof from our museum.


obama goofy window 260Yes. Aloof from the Goof. He thought it a spoof, demanded some proof.

Careful, Blog Guy, you’re actually typing those Dr. Seuss rhymes, not just thinking them.

Oh, thanks. Then Obama visited us for a VIP tour. Wine on the roof, a nice Châteauneuf…

You’re doing it again, Blog Guy.

He liked it so much he agreed to make more goofy faces himself, and also to urge his supporters to goof it up more, as seen in the above recent photo.

Now, the whole Obama family loves the museum.

Even Bo, the dog?

Bo gave us a woof.

Obama called off the bluff
Didnt want to look more gruff
Tried to imitate a Goofy Smurff
and came out all smug and chuff! 😀

O’Bama descends from the roof
Battling photographers, nail and tooth
His fall from grace
Reflects on his face
And people say ‘ain’t that the truth’

Arrrrrgh! The poor puns are painful. Someone needs to provide more than just donuts for this one. BG, I think you owe us some photos of the female Chinese recruits going through screening.

They are indeed painful, Dave. It builds character.

Just be patient. I think you’ll be very, very happy indeed with the next item I post. Start writing your thank-you note…

You’re right, Spin, it’s merely wordplay and not puns, but I wasn’t going to correct Dave, not with the weapons he has access to.

Speaking of weapons, it looks like the gal in the ballcap dropped hers.

Sorry – rhymes, not puns. Not enough donuts.

Gaze upon the POTUS,
as you sit and nom your doughnuts.
Hope and Change
it feels so strange,
now that China owns us.

What’s with the stripe of white hair on the first pic? Also, over here in the UK, former prime minister’s wife Cherie Blair made a truly amazing goofy face at the Rememberance Day thing in London.

Crowgirl, wouldn’t it be fair to say that would actually news that Cherie Blair DIDN’T make a goofy face at some public event?
Mr B. may have to correct me, but I am certain her countenance was one of the first permanent exhibits at the Goofy Face Museum.

Mr.Pilot makes a point
and so does, Miss Spin…
As the entire blog goes silent,
Miss Ballcap says, “I win, I win!”

Good choice for the museum Mr. B!

Nosmo, I wish I could tell you my friends charming description of Cherie, but alas not on a family friendly blog. Mr B, if I email it to you, could you pass it on?
