image for Obama Bows Down To Queen Latifah
The Queen Of Latifah

(Los Angeles, CA)-- President Obama's plane touched down at LAX last night on its return trip from Asia. Hundreds of fans and plenty of Hollywood celebrities came to the airport to greet the returning president. A close aide informed the president that Queen Latifah herself would be on the tarmac to meet him when he arrived.

The president's eyes widened with delight as he thought of the opportunity to bow before another monarch. "I've always wanted to meet the Queen of Latifah." said the president. "Latifah is that little Baltic country between Estonia and Delaware. I should know, I went to Harvard." he said smugly and tossed his silly head.

The president deplaned to the cheers of hundreds of supporters when he arrived at LAX. He jutted his chin in the air as the stood at the top of the stairway to Airforce One and surveyed the crowd. A dozen top celebrities stood in a circle around the stairway, hoping to shake hands with their returning hero. Queen Latifah was among them. A presidential aide then stepped in and introduced Ms. Latifah to Mr. Obama.

"Mr. President, may I introduce Queen Latifah to you, Sir." said the aide solemnly.

"Well, first of all, she's the Queen of Latifah, you peasant." said President Obama to his aide. "And second of all, you're supposed to bow to royalty, like this." he said.

The president then made a swooping bow to the ground and touched his lips to the tarmac in front of the shocked B-list actress. He then took her right hand and he kissed the ring on her finger.

Queen Lafifah was stunned for a moment but then erupted with thunderous laughter. She ran back to the crowd and told everyone what had happened. The news quickly spread throughout the crowd and everyone burst out laughing.

President Obama heard the shrieks of mocking laughter and became extremely embarrassed. He ran up the staircase to Airforce One and told the pilot to take off immediately for Washington. President Obama then fired the aide who introduced him to Queen Latifah. President Obama sulked in the back of the plane for the rest of the journey and didn't talk to anyone.
