DUBLIN, Ireland - President Obama's overseas trip has so far received over $3 million in donations.

Government representatives are quick to point out that the trip was not meant as a "Telethon-On-Wheels" but like Secretary of Agriculture Willie Nelson said, "It is what it is y'all."

A representative for the British government wrote President Obama a check for 1 million pounds, which in U.S. money is $1,448,855.40.

Ireland proudly donated $400,000, ten cases of its best Irish Whiskey, and 70,000 bars of Irish Spring Soap.

Scotland delivered Obama a check for $300,000, 25 brand new kilts, and 40 factory reconditioned bagpipes.

Everywhere that President Obama has gone he has been greeted by people cheering and yelling everything from "Hey Mr. President, it's me (FILL IN ANY ONE OF A HUNDRED THOUSAND NAMES)," to "Where's that funny little white guy Joe?" and "Hey, you're a lot taller in person," to, "Do you really and truly know Oprah?"

The president's staff is really looking forward to their trip to Paris, France, where they are planning on setting up a "First Mama Kissing Booth" on the grounds of the Eiffel Tower.

The idea was originally suggested by Secretary of Defense Sean "Diddy" Combs. The plan is for Michelle Obama to set up in the kissing booth and participants can pay $100 for the right to kiss Mrs. Obama.

Combs says that he figures that the "First Mama" should be able to bring in about $192,000 quite easily.

In other news. Former First Lady Laura Bush who recently went to work at a Dallas Dairy Queen Restaurant has just been named that Diary Queen's "Employee of The Week."
