Washington, DC - That's right the cast from the cable TV show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" attend this year's Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn with little or no funfair. Although news of the attendance of same-sex couples at the traditionally heterosexual event was given well in advance, Obama asked members of the media to downplay their attendance to make it appear as normal as possible.
However, despite assurances from the White House that their would be no noticeable changes in the traditional East Egg Roll, Obama aides were hard pressed to explain the absence of the tradition face painting booth which instead had been replaced by a makeup and artist's tips boutique for kids, operated by the "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy".
"My son asked to be painted like a lion," said one father that was upset. "And they painted up his face like a Pussy Cat with whiskers and gave him a bushy tail too."
"He's suppose to be 'Mr. Mistoffelees' from Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical hit 'Cats'," said one of the guys from Queer eye. "My God, I was trying to expose the kid to some culture. What's wrong with that?"
"My kid asked to be painted up like a Bunny Rabbit," said an upset mother. "Not to be actually sized and fitted for a Life-Sized Bunny Rabbit costume. Oh sure, now he likes carrots, but just look at him. He won't stop hopping around. Where's the damn zipper on this thing anyway?"
Not all parents were upset, however, some even complimented "'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" for their bold and innovative out of the box, out of the closet designs.
"I thought their version of the cast from 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' was absolutely to die for," said one parent. "Their use of hemp as a substitute for guarder belts and leather restraining devices was so environmentally and PETA conscientious. And their mouth gags made out of orange popcorn balls and marshmallows was so realistic looking, yummy and sugar-free too. Little Tommy had hours of enjoyment quietly eating his way through one, that I simply had to get the recipe."
Obama and White House staffers have already begun to draw up next year's guest list.
"Next year," said a White House staff member. "Obama would like to invite a polygamist and his wives and children to show that he is not being hypocritical, only we simply are unable to accommodate that many guests at this venue. Perhaps he will rent a stadium, especially for the occasion."
