image for Obama Consults with Goober
Goober likes Pies

President Obama reacted to news that Iran is enriching uranium by going for a haircut. His regular barber Floyd cuts the president's hair every ten days and is known to be a sounding board for the president often giving him words of advice such as "Yass", "Yasss'" and "Oh! I see."

This time the president told Floyd that he really didn't know what to do, it was as he put it, "A Stumper."

After a pause and a few more snips Obama said Floyd then gave him advice that his regular councillors, Joe Biden and his wife Michelle, could not have given him.

"What would Goober do?"

"So right then and there after that haircut I went right down Goober's garage, the kind of honorable family business that makes America great and I told Goober my problem, how Iran was now enriching uranium, while we changed my oil and sat around the pickle barrel drinking sodas. We talked about this and that and eventually talk drifted to waste and bad government until I caught myself and realized we were talking about me and Nancy Pelosi."

"Goober then said something that struck me like it would for to so many Americans."

"Whoooeeee! Did you see the size of that apple pie that Aunt Bea made this morning?"

"I knew then that good neighbors are what his country is all about like Goober and Aunt Bea and her apple pie and that we need to change our foreign policy. I promised change for this country. Goober helped me out in that dark time and told me what I should do."

"If America wants to be good neighbours with Iran then we should not be sending over hundreds of thousands of heavily armed troops, we should be sending over honest ordinary Americans like Aunt Bea and Goober to make them apple pies and show them how to spit watermelon seeds in their backyards while drinking Kool-Aid."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
