Obama Claus strikes again

His lordship the messiah-in-chief, the most high MOTUS with the mostus, Barack Obama, created quite the British controversy when he and Michelle did the two-handed shake of the Queen's hand.

Obama Jokes With the Queen About Jet Lag, noodles, and nodding off. AAAAAwkward!Jimmy Kimmel Live - Jimmy plays a clip of Obama greeting the queen


The Queen then gives Obama her self-portrait and he presents her with an iPod filled with his music and speeches. I wonder if he really meant to give his iPod to her, or at some point after the reception line it was time for the gift exchange and he realized he had forgotten her boxed set of Austin Powers DVDs.

I can see it now. Like that Arby's commercial where the idiot husband comes home with his Arby's sandwich bag and the wife meets him at the door and says, "Happy Anniversary!", and she gives him a new golf bag and clubs. He looks sheepishly at the Arby's bag and painfully hands it over stating, "I got you this".

This guy is Obama with an iPod. I wonder if the Queen responded like the wife by crying "I love you!" and embracing him ina bear hug.

It does beg the question as to what to gift a Queen. Queens have everything, don't they? Of course she already owned an iPod. I mean, I thought it was tough to shop for my kids at Christmas because they already have EVERYTHING. They do not, however, own a pair of mute guards wearing fuzzy hats that are paid to stand outside their bedroom door... Hmmmmm. Next year's idea.

Everyone knows that the English love their spot of tea. Obama could have re-gifted the motherload in tea bags if he could have held off for another week.

Jackie and Dunlap from redstateupdate.com weigh in:
JACKIE: "What the hell they give the Queen an iPod for? If the Queen want ta hear music, she just call over a Court Jester and have him play the Lute."

The Jimmy Kimmel clip reminds me of the old Flip Wilson greeting. Slap each hand, knock each elbow and bump butts. Remember?

This was funny. Like the tea bag bit too.

Pic Pic- That's also the Pope's secret Cardinal handshake.
TD- Thanks. You too.
Chuck- Glad you like. Sometimes laughing at the yahoo is all we can do.

Yeah, we laugh because otherwise we'd cry.

PIC-PIC: So you're old enough to remember Flip... unless you've recently raided the YouTube files, eh?

cube- yes Pic Pic is old enough to remember Flip. Pic Pic is a golfing buddy of mine who is hilarious and should be doing a blog. He ought to hurry though. I mean, how many GOOD years can he possibly have left?
RK- At least the gold iPod could be melted down and added to her majesty's crown!
