Washington, DC - As a result of President Obama executing a fly during a CNBC television interview, calls came in from the PETA organization, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, for the President's immediate resignation.
"It's an outrage," stated PETA representative Susan Quonset Hut. "This President should be held accountable for his public behavior. He should resign immediately."
Calls came in from world leaders condemning Obama's actions although they stopped short of telling him to resign.
Said Indian Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, "I strongly condemn Mr. Obama's actions but I stop short of telling him to resign."
Conservative senator, John McCain, was quick in his criticism of the President. "For a man that professes to be a 'green' President, one who marshals resources responsibily, I'm confounded by his actions of throwing the fly away after he killed it. He should have eaten it instead."
Even the President's wife, Michelle Obama, had something to say about it,
"Quite frankly, when I married Barack I thought he struck me as the kind of gentleman that would never hurt a fly. I'm extremely disappointed that I've been proven wrong."
When told of Ms. Obama's response, President Obama stated, "Oh great guys. I guess I'm in the doghouse now. Hehehe. Better make up the couch for bed in the Oval Office tonight. She'll be locking the White House doors on me again."
And with that comment he invited the White House press corp to the Oval office for poker, pizza and beer after work. Sweet!
