Presidient Barak Obama has disappointed millions of voters by announcing today that running for President was 'just a laugh', and that he never actually expected to be elected to the White House.
The new President said that he really only ran for a bit of a lark. He had been out with some of his mates who suggested after a few too many shandys that he should run for President. Seeing as he had nothing better to do at the time he thought "what the heck" and gave it a bash.
He said that he did enjoy seeing his picture on hats, T-shirts, posters and in the newspapers, and he did quite like going on TV to discuss things of national importance, although he regrets never actually getting to the bottom of why pool rules in relation to potting the final 8-ball differ so much from State to State. He also wondered why the banks have had to be bailed out having made billions of dollard profit during the past 12 years.
"Now I have been elected President" he said, "I think I'd better resign before I make a complete George Bush of myself."
