BEIJING, China - President Obama visiting China had an opportunity to visit with his half brother Mark Ndesandjo (pronounced: MARK san-JA-ya)
The two met at a Beijing McDonald's where they talked about old times and how both like to drink beer, listen to George Strait CD's, and root for The Chicago Cubs.
The president gave Mark an 8 by 10 glossy of Mr. Chicago Cub, Ernie Banks. Mark said that he would cherish it and put it up on his dresser beside his bronzed baby sandal, his Jackie Chan sock puppet, and his 2003 Yao Ming rookie basketball card.
President Obama also presented Mark with an autographed basketball that Michael Jordan had given him back in August on his 48th birthday.
Mark gave his half brother a 2004 rick shaw which he had spent 143 man-hours constructing all by himself.
The rick shaw was made made from chopsticks, irregular-bin Chinese dragon T-Shirts, spray paint, Popsicle sticks, butter (as glue), Velcro, egg roll wrappers, old discarded Chinese lantern pieces, and rice (as nails).
The president asked Marky if he could go for a ride and Mark told him to get in and he pulled him around his neighborhood showing him off to his 17,000 neighbors.
Afterwards the two half bros went out to Mark's backyard and shot some baskets. They played a game of 'Hoss' (Horse) which Brobama easily won. Mark remarked that "Haffy," as he affectionately refers to his half brother, was a pretty darn good shooter.
The president smiled and confessed that one of the perks and amenities of being president is that you can call up any NBA basketball player and fly him to Washington D.C. so that he can give the president of the free world basketball lessons.
President Obama told his half bro that just since March he has received basketball lessons and tips from the likes of Tim Duncan, Steve Nash, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Jack Nicholson.
"Jack Nickolson?" Mark asked.
And the president replied, "Yeah, the old son-of-a-bitch actor taught me how to 'Trash Talk.'
After their game of 'Horse' the two played a game of one-on-one. Of course as Mark pointed out, it was really kind of difficult with the secret service agents not letting the President get three feet away from them.
Mark said that at one point when his half bro went up for a layup, the secret service got his gun holster caught in the president's shorts and both tumbled to the ground. The other secret service agent immediately drew his gun but did not shoot it.
President Obama's half brother is a very successful writer having written some award-winning books including his latest; My Tumultuous Journey From Nairobi To Shenzhen In a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle.
Mark's first book was a romance novel entitled, My Life Among The Jungle Vines of Kenya. It went on to win the coveted Nat King Cole Award For Romantic Personified Personification.
His second book titled Diana Ross And The Supremes Weren't All That went on to sell 2 million copies, 1 million in Zimbabwe alone.
Ndesandjo is presently working on his latest book entitled, "My Half Bro President Obama and His Woman My Half Sister-in-Law, The First Mama."
Mark was thrilled to inform Brobama that The Jungle Drum Motion Picture Company of Africa has purchased the rights to his romance novel, "My Life Among The Jungle Vines of Kenya" and will start shooting the movie in January of 2010.
Jungle Drum is presently in negotiations to sign Denzel Washington in the lead role of Dr. Tatumbi "Is That A Snake or What" Fafakoombi, the noted Kenyan proctologist who discovered butt vitamins.
In an unrelated story. The Republic of Mexico has had to postpone their planned invasion of Australia due to the fact that more than half of the burros have come down with the dreaded 'Burrositus.'
