THIRD POST TODAY – November 21, 2011 – MERCURY NEWS SERVICE SPECIAL EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT – Hedwig Snarlton-Oberuntermeyer reporting from New York.
The Board of Governors of the Alfred E. Newman Foundation for Chronic Silliness has just announced the award of “SILLY MAN OF THE YEAR” TO BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA, President of the United States.
This award’s previous recipients have been, Jerry Lewis, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and Tony Blair. Today’s announcement that President Obama has joined the aetherial ranks of so many laureled buffoons has been met with muted praise seeing that the Prez is normally very serious and focused on his work.
The Board Chairman, Viktor Erstwhile Gruff, said in his speech at the Waldorf-Astoria that:
“His unwillingness to stick to principle; his charming way of evading logic and rational behavior while delivering those patented, big-toothed smiles, makes this man unique in the annals of comedy. Hypocrisy as black comedy; Dissimulation as high drama; Lying as irony. All this makes Barak Obama an unique recipient of this most exalted prize.” President Obama confessed today in a talk with Wilbur Schnortt that he “truly appreciates the prize and will do his best for the next few months to demonstrate his worthiness.”
