image for Barack Obama's Sesame Street past
"Bert" from Sesame Street

After a lot of digging, this reporter has managed to uncover some of Barack Obama's secret past.

In this exclusive revelation I have managed to establish that the 47 year old Presidential hopeful used to play the character of "Bert" in Sesame Street, alongside his much loved side-kick "Ernie".

"Bert" is most famously known for the sketches involving his rubber duckie.

In this remarkable revelation, I contacted Mr Obama's campaign team for more information, but up-to now have received no response.

Mr Obama first made his appearance of "Bert" in 1969 and has entertained millions of children since then.

As of late though, he has decided to take a back seat and attempt to become the next President of the United States instead.

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