Two topics are dogging Obama on Twitter today and they’re both pretty hilarious . . . from a hilarity-lover’s point of view. As we’ve heard the “Pres” has a solid sense of humor, we’re wondering if he and Michelle aren’t having a little chuckle over the Twitter zaniness today too!
Or maybe it’s one of those “we’ll look back on it and laugh” kind of days.
First up: eating dog. If you read Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father, you would know that Barack ate dog as a boy in Indonesia.
Well, The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher drew attention to the passage, using it to fire back against Mitt Romney detractors (who criticize him for strapping his dog to the roof of his car – in a carrier – for a 12-hour family drive).
While neither dog-eating nor dog abuse are laughing matters, the tweets are pretty hilarious. You can find many of them tagged with #ObamaDogRecipe.
And next up: Secret Service sexapades reported by The New York Times.
A Secret Service agent preparing for President Obama’s arrival at an international summit meeting and a single mother from Colombia who makes a living as a high-priced escort faced off in a room at the Hotel Caribe a week ago over how much he owed her for the previous night’s intercourse. “I tell him, ‘Baby, my cash money,’ ” the woman said in her first public comments on a spat that would soon spiral into a full-blown scandal.
If you didn’t just spit out your coffee reading that, you need to have your funny bone checked. Because it’s broken.
The piece goes on to detail the “escort’s” account of the events (you can almost visualize the rapidly and ridiculously escalating scene), the distinction she makes between prostitutes and escorts and the “nervous attacks” she’s been having since she realized who her “date” was with that night. Secret service was a trending topic on Twitter earlier today and the @SecretService account is getting lots of action, as is the #SecretService hashtag.
Turns out neither has a funny ending though, with secret service resigning and Obama openly eating tiny puppies:
Sorry, couldn’t resist.
Don’t worry, Obamas. Tomorrow is a new day.
