Top 10 perks of the Obama presidency

Top 10 perks of the Obama presidency…
  1. Canadians no longer minding being called Americans when traveling abroad…and no longer necessary to pretend you're Canadian while traveling abroad.
  2. Smartest guy in room now IS the President.
  3. Drug companies begin search for compound to relieve new health problem: people suffering from repeated, uncontrollable sighs of relief. 
  4. Citizens find days passing by quickly in a giddy lightheaded state (“Obamaraderie”).
  5. Reporter-safe puppy. (Or, Barney's bites no longer make the news.)
  6. Whitehouse now Cheney-Free zone…except for his eighth cousin, Barack Obama.
  7. Having a president whose first language is English and has made a campaign promise to pronounce the word nuclear, nuclear.
  8. Color blind citizens not annoyed by claim “We're all color-blind now.”
  9. Warring African nations declare a "ceasefire minute" to celebrate.
  10. Excuse that lipstick on collar is from “Some teary-eyed Obama supporter in line at Grocery store” accepted at face value by spouse.


  1. Best of Obama humor on the web
  2. Late-night comics' jokes about Obama
  3. Obama's funny jokes from the campaign
  4. All funny moments from the ’08 election season
  5. …and the transcript of Obama's comedy roast at the Al Smith dinner
More benefits:
  1. Oval Office 24-hour live video feed being installed in Oprah's house.
  2. George Bush relaxes for the first time in nearly eight years, knowing someone who can handle the tough stuff will be stepping in.
  3. Political humor writers happily begin searching for new lines of work.
  4. Haircuts to show off Alfred E. Neuman ears are suddenly popular.
  5. Having a president who will stick with us through thick and thin, and really looks the thin part.
  6. Having a thin president probably more motivational than even “Super-size me” was to dieting fat citizens.
  7. Our first black president since the first season of '24'
  8. Having another inexperienced Illinois senator raise expectations
  9. First president with a deadly, fade-away jumper
  10. If we get kidnapped in a Middle Eastern country we can say we know Hussein and they might not behead us
From Late Night, the original Top Ten…
