Washington DC, Saturday. In a surprise late night televised presidential speech, US President Barack Obama has announced his engagement to well known pop icon Cher and effectively ended his marriage to Michelle Obama, even though they're still married and haven't formally decided to separate.
Obama stated that he loved Cher and could not see himself ever falling for another woman (yeah, right!). He met Cher fours years ago when she appeared at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago wearing a skimpy Victoria's Secret outfit complete with a matching sexual prophylactic. The two really hit it off with each other and Obama reportedly flew Cher to a secret locale in Ireland when he visited there a couple of years ago.
Mrs Obama hasn't released any press comments yet though it will be interesting to see how she reacts.
NB Breaking news reveals that Michelle Obama has ordered in the National Guard to prevent her husband leaving the White House to meet up with the famous singer. We'll keep you posted on this remarkable turn of events.
