Festive plans for a Hawaiian Christmas dinner and family celebration were dampened today when President Barry Obama backed out of a state sponsored Luau planned in his honor.
Citing dietary considerations, a mandate from wife Michelle who continues to carry on her fight against obesity in fat arsed people who can't say no to double desserts, and an encrypted Blackberry text message from his spiritual advisor, Imam Mahmoud el ShaBoom, regarding Pork for Presidents setting a bad example for Muslims around the world, Barry Promptly Pardoned the Pig.

Speaking for the pig, sty master Ralph Palamanto said, "Bernie was prepared to die. He had been in training for the day when he'd make the ultimate sacrifice for the cause. I don't know, he seems ok now due to all the excitement, but when it sinks in he's been denied, I don't know if his psyche will be able to cope with it.

Palamanto was asked if Bernie would consider 'giving it up' for Nancy Pelosi when she
comes out for New Years celebrating her last junket with friends and family on the giant air force plane she commandeered for her last official act as Speaker of the House.
The sty master didn't hesitate in answering emphatically, "In a Pig's Arse!"
