Obama enforces no-fly zone inside the White House

In an event that either...
1) demonstrates the President's dexterity and savoir-faire, or
2) exemplifies the triviality of Obamamania,
...President Obama swats a fly.

Via Buzzfeed.


  1. But can he do it with chop sticks? Any Tom Ridge, Dick Cheney, or Harry Reid can swat a fly. To catch one with chop sticks...now that's a feat.

  2. outraged letter from PETA in 5... 4... 3...

  3. Awesome, Mr. Miagi was the first thing that I thought of too.

  4. @ A. Fischer - I don't know if you were joking, but your prediction came true...

    PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

    "We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."

  5. @Stan I was... but only kind of. I actually just came back here to post a link to that story.
