President Obama pardoned two turkeys today — no, not Joe Biden and the stimulus.

Looks like Obama even tried to “fist bump” one of the birds that was flown in from California, but the turkey wasn’t having any of that — I think the bird’s still ticked at having its giblets violated by the TSA:

The other option besides a full pardon was to give the turkeys a trial in a civil court before subjecting them to the dinner table.

Obama didn’t come by this decision lightly:

    According to the "Onion", Obummble poured over more than 2,000 facts about turkeys ! Given that he then did the right thing and pardoned two turkeys, I would conclude he knows more about them than our nation`s constitution !

    I wonder which union that turkey belongs to that he got to keep his head?

    I was thinking "lobbyists" ! "Take her, not me ! She`s so much more luscious !"
    (Don`t want to be too descriptive with the most desireable parts !)

    Even Nation's Office Macots Feeling Stress Of Obama-economy:
    Sublimity, Oregon

    Six-year old female Shih Tzu, "Coco" reflects back fondly on her role as "official" office-mascot. Going to work every day with her master, Marshall Will, lavished with constant attention and endless treats, Coco recalled thinking, "It doesn't get any better than this!"
    But with the Social Justice-agenda of the current administration and intentionally scuttled economy, a now blatantly depressed Coco wonders if her life will 'ever' get back to normal? Glancing at her once gleaming water dish she bellows "Have you 'seen' it? Damn thing is disgusting.

    We've t-r-i-e-d animal psychologists, shrinks, whatever you call 'em, pleads a clearly concerned Will. With as slow as business has been, she has her choice of sofa cushions, added a flummoxed Will. "Social JUSTICE!? Where's MY freakin' social justice? This keeps up I'll be the first dog in history trying to break IN to the pound" replied mascot-turned-malcontent, Coco.

    "….which union….?" , UHDCA – United Holiday Dinner Critters of America !? I understand they are big contributors to PETA and the ASPCA !

  7. SignPainterGuy on November 24th, 2010 10:20 pm

    Is this an issue "run-rampant" in Sublimity ? Is the level of attention becoming less adoring and passionate ? Are the treats less than end-"less" , and of lesser quality and/or of a non-preferred variety ? Has the Office Mascots International Union (OMIU) received Coco`s grievance ? While personal staff is usually reserved for cats, "Official" Office Mascots do rate the extra considerations – you, Mr Will, should be ashamed for allowing the condition of the previously "gleaming" water dish to deteriorate to its current substandard state !

    "……mascot-turned-malcontent…", Coco probably knows full well, it`s Bush`s fault ! (M_W, you escaped that one by the hair of your chinny chin chin!)

    Hey, grease stain, get off my page of American History, you don’t belong here. You’re an embarrassment to your name sake, Chairman Mao.

    Pardoning turkeys? Good, good, you made an actual decision, and you did it without TOTUS.

    How ‘bout surprising the world and do something that takes a spine? You know, take the training wheels off and be a real president. You wanted it; you got it; now do something, bug juice.

  9. SignPainterGuy on November 24th, 2010 11:56 pm

    Yeah, what you said ! Obowmao actually did something right AND without TOTUS ! Speaking of which, TOTUS is likely feeling a bit left out and just might slip in a few embarrassing remarks for him to read off verbatim, as is his way …watch the next few speeches for……..ppfffffft ! How would we know ? He always sounds stupid !

    "Bug juice !" I love it !
