President Obama "Wouldn't mind getting laid off for a while"

Funny story written by Jeff Brone

Saturday, 16 August 2014

President Obama recently said that he wouldn't mind "a few months off" and if the government decided to downsize him he would be open to the possibility.

"I think we definitely could have a conversation about it, maybe mull it over and look at the options" he offered while having breakfast in the oval office. He added that maybe there would be a "pretty sweet severance package" that would go with it.

"Heck," he added, "I don't believe that the President is any better than anybody else. If a Colorado mother of two can lose her job, why not me? That goes for a single Florida construction worker as well."

Vice President Joe Bainer was quick to ask if he had to step in as President should a downsizing take place because, as he put it, "I was going to paint my garage soon. I already bought the brushes." As he seemed visibly agitated, he was given some hard candy.

The President added that he wouldn't mind collecting unemployment for a little while as he could catch up on his reading and spend some time with his family, which he said was the cornerstone of this great nation. "I have to admit that I'd like to try something else for a change. I'm not so sure being President was the right choice for me. Maybe I'd like to work with kids or learn a trade. And now that the Affordable Care Act can provide insurance for Americans who are in between jobs, the time may be right for a little break."

He added "I have a pretty good singing voice too. I've really been practicing."
