In a bid to be "all things to all people", President Obama emulated President Kennedy's Berlin speech and today greeted a silently waiting crowd in his best Gaelic at Dublin Airport, Ireland.
Seeing as his first go-round didn't go very well. Obama went on to "Titim gan éirí ort," which unfortunately, as everyone knows, is an Irish curse meaning "May you fall without rising." About to try again, the president received a sharp jab in the ribs from first lady Michelle Obama who then addressed the people, "Lets go knock some Leprechaun heads and take their gold!"
Crazed shouts of joy and pleasure erupted from the heretofore somber assembly. The First Lady was carried on the joyous mob's shoulders in a mock Leprechaun hunt down O'Donnell St. to the O'Shaunessey pub where the First Couple's vendetta against wee people was quickly forgotten. The merry making went on into the wee hours.
