In a surprising intellectual twist to the complex American Presidential election, an orthadontist has come forward with the shock claim that Barack Obama has 'better teeth than Mrs. Clinton.'
Speaking from his office in Dallas, Texas, Mr. B O'Bama said: 'Barack Obama has better teeth than Mrs. Clinton - but not as nice ones as Monica Lewinsky, obviously', and analysts are pondering over this latest complication to an already tough and demanding campaign. Many are now suggesting that Mr. Obama's chompers will be worth as many as 3 million votes in the election, which takes place in November, though others have suggested that skin pigmentation is a more important voting attribute in an advanced, Westernised democracy.
We asked Sir Donald Osmond for a brief comment, and he said this: 'Crazee horse teeth! Ooowahhh, oowahhhh!.' And his sister, Lady Marie-Antoinette de la Rootcanal said: 'Barack who? Is he Irish?'
Bootlegger and gangster Joseph Kennedy was unavailable for comment, but his dentist's body was discovered last week in a lime pit in New York State.
