Putting the fun back in funerals

Our beloved President is shown here inappropriately whooping it up at Nelson Mandela’s official memorial service at FNB stadium, in Soweto last month.

The happy campers are President Obama, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, and British Prime Minister David Cameron. Michelle Obama? Not so much.

Rumors are spreading that Michelle was “less than pleased” with her husband’s fawning attention to the hot Danish PM. So much so, in fact, that – after a small nuclear explosion in the White House – the First Couple now sleep in separate bedrooms. And, further, that Michelle plans to dump the boy king after completion of his second term.

Interesting times ahead for the ever-popular White House soap opera: The Dumb and the Feckless.

These photos (obviously) didn’t make it into other collections of more sincere mourners.
