Obama Celebrates Eighteenth Birthday
President Barack Obama blew out the candles on his birthday cake today as other children invited to the party looked on. Asked what his wish was, the youngster replied, “That the message of Michael Jackson could be fully appreciated by the leaders of the world.”
Later, as he dug into his ice cream and cake, he modified his statement with, “Of course, I intended to reference the positive statements made over the course of a great career,” and “it was Bush’s fault.” Party goers were reticent to respond when queried about their approval rating of the event. One participant did allow, however,”This was worse than my brother’s story about tending Clinton’s napkin at Kim Jong Il’s pre-existing condition dinner.” The young president was in high spirits upon opening his presents, which included brightly wrapped donations from various snickering foreign despots, a promise of several hundred thousand suddenly discovered votes from Al Franken, and a commitment (via card) from ACORN to maintain a firm grip on his coat-tails of grandeur.
