If a bar holds Obama AND Fox News, is the bar half empty or half full?

Does everyone remember this riddle?

You're stuck in a room with no windows or doors, but does have a table and a mirror. How do you get out?

OK, time's up. If you haven't heard this one before, here's the answer.

Look in the mirror. See what you saw. You take the saw and cut the table in two. Two halves make a hole, then you climb through the hole.

Too easy, right? Here is a tougher one.

You are bellied up to the bar at Ziggy’s Pub and Restaurant in Amherst, Ohio, drinking beers and acting stupidly, when President Obama walks in the bar with his possee and heads your way. You immediately notice Fox News is being broadcast from the wall-mounted black and white 9" TV above the mirror. WHAT DO YOU DO?  

Give up? I certainly wouldn't. I did mention you lived in Ohio, right? There is nothing else worthwhile to do in Ohio but to get hammered up at the local watering hole, so leaving is not an option. And if the choice is between Obama or Fox News? Pretty simple choice for me, really. So here's what I would do.

Look in the mirror. See what you saw. You take the saw and cut the black and white in two... OK, just kidding! You'd lose either way on that one.

How about this? Swap the latest "stump speech" in Obama's teleprompter with the microchip from the talking urinal cake. If there is one thing in this world Obama listens to and doesn't govern against it's will, it is his teleprompter. If his tele-buddy suddenly started nagging, "Had a few drinks? Maybe a few too many?," Obama would leave immediately.

Problem solved!


  1. What kind of president would ask that? I'd heard about this but am glad to read the account in your link....he has such fricking NERVE.

    It's one thing to disagree, MAN UP and realize a WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE don't agree with YOU, Mr. Pres, and it's not because we're STUPID but it might just be because FOX usually includes ALL SIDES of discussions, not just the sycophantic CRAP on MSNBC AND CNN> (&*$#(*&

    (stronger letter to follow!) Thanks for letting me vent, DB!! xxx z

  2. My pleasure Z! A free talking urinal cake on the house!
