Time Publishes Photo of Obama at Senior Prom Because It’s Important

In an EXCLUSIVE Time has obtained a photo of President Obama before his senior prom. Pictured are Kelli Allman (née McCormack), Greg Orme, Obama and Obama’s date, Megan Hughes. Obama’s the black guy.

Not only did Time publish this IMPORTANT photograph, it also posted what Obama wrote in Allman’s yearbook. It reveals a lot about the President; specifically that he was fairly boring. “It has been so nice getting to know you this year,” he wrote. “You are extremely sweet and foxy, I don’t know why Greg would want to spend any time with me at all! You really deserve better than clowns like us; you even laugh at my jokes!”

Well, there you have it. Good luck going through the rest of your day without pondering the IMPORTANCE of the photograph and note.
