Obama and the Pirate. Ahoy Matey! You Provide the Quotes
Just a short break for some humor.
I couldn’t resist posting this photo. Don’t ask me why? In fact, I am going to ask you to provide your own quotes to match this photo.
My first reaction was how in the hell did the Secret Service let this pirate in the same room with the President sporting that hook?
Then, after a few sobering moments I found it ironic that the President doesn’t have the time to meet with one of our closest allies – Prime Minister Netanyahu – but he has time to chat with David Letterman and the ladies on The View, be interviewed by entertainment magazines, schmooze with Jay-Z and Beyonce, and have a friendly chat with a buccaneer.
Who knows? Maybe this was Netanyahu disguised as a pirate?
Actually, this meeting was arranged as the President celebrated International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19. This was created in 1995 as a tribute to the pirate life romanticized in 1950s films like 'Treasure Island' and 'Blackbeard the Pirate.
Anyway, let’s have some fun and see how creative we can get with the quotes.
I’ll go first:
Obama: So Mr. Pirate…how can I influence the pirate community to vote for me?
Pirate: Shiver me timbers Matey...you are already our chosen leader…just look at how you have plundered the national treasure!
