This is FUNNY!

Before everyone gets their hackles up, I'm not trying to troll with this email copy. I thought it was HILARIOUS. If you don't like the particular politician and issues, just plug in the issues from whatever politician you like. They ALL have some kind of spin issues like this that you can hammer on.

Anyway I laughed my butt off, so plug in your politician and enjoy.



President Obama visited a grade school in South Philly last week to talk to the kids. After his talk he offered question time.

One little boy put up his hand, and Obama asked him his name.
" Walter," responds the little boy.

"And what is your question, Walter?"

"I have four questions:

First, Why did the USA bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?

Second, Why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it's
actually gotten worse?

Third, Why did you say that Jeremiah Wright was your mentor,
then said that you knew nothing about his preaching and beliefs?

Fourth, Why are we lending money to Brazil to drill for oil, but
America is not allowed to drill for oil?"

Just then, the bell rings for recess so Obama informed the kids that
they will continue after recess.

When they resumed class, Obama said, "OK, where were we? Oh, that's right: question time.. Who has a question?"

Another little boy put up his hand. Obama points him out and asks him
his name.

"Steve," he responds.

"And what is your question, Steve?"

Actually, I have two questions.

First, Why did the recess bell ring 20 minutes early?

Second, What the heck happened to Walter?"

Seems a bit racist...

Can I quote your post and make the suggested changes in the quote? Last week, someone did this to one of your posts, and it sure wasn't my hackles that got up...

Disclaiming actions as non-trolling doesn't obviate the troll.

My gosh Paul, do you REALLY lack a sense of humor? Plug in the politician you hate the most and have fun with it.

Good gosh!

Actually, the funny part is that the four questions are full of misquotes and out of context statements, right?

First, Why did the USA bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?

Well, what is "the support of Congress?" Was such a thing constitutionally required?

Second, Why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it's actually gotten worse?

When was the statement "fixed the economy" made?


Third, Why did you say that Jeremiah Wright was your mentor, then said that you knew nothing about his preaching and beliefs?

The President has referred to Rev. Wright as a confidant, but not as a mentor. Likewise, did the President ever say he knew "nothing" about the preaching and beliefs of Rev. Wright?

Fourth, Why are we lending money to Brazil to drill for oil, but
America is not allowed to drill for oil?"


Is the President lending money . . . not according to Snopes

^^^It must have been a challenge to type this post while convulsing in laughter.

How many direct copy/paste emails will it take for the mods to start enacting spam rules.... What is this, like 5 in 2 weeks?

Are you saying I didn't enjoy disecting and disarming the attempted humor in your spam mail?

Lighten up? Did the President adversely affect the gravitational field of the planet?

Do you really think it was an attempt at humor, or just another lame, thinly-veiled, right-wing attack on a great man?

Larry, just ask CLKman . . . humor is subjective. Learn from one's mistakes, work on delivery and timing . . . know your audience.
