A Presidential Meme

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything that tickles me more!

Yes, it’s a TV commercial featuring Millard Fillmore as Soap-on-a-Rope!

Except maybe this, first seen at Lisa V’s.

How better to honor President’s Day? Herewith, five Presidential questions.

1. Can you name the American Presidents we are honoring? Bonus: Any idea when their real birthdays are? (Don’t look it up.)

2. Why do you suppose car sales are an important aspect of our President’s Day observations in the U.S.? (Feel free to be whimsical.)

3. Have you ever been President of a club or organization? How did that feel?

4. If you could have dinner with any President of the United States no longer living, who would it be? Any particular questions you would like to ask? (Please feel free to substitute a nationally appropriate elected leader, such as a Prime Minister.)

5. On a more serious note, what are the qualities you hope for in our next President? (As above for those who live in other countries.)

Carry this to your blog and let me know in the comments here if you play! I’ll post my answers on Monday.

  1. I think the Barack Obama is your new bicycle site is funny, but I don’t think I get it — is it based on some internet meme that I’ve been completely clueless about?

  2. Not president, but secretary of the student organization at sem. oh, well. I think that’s a little less than bridesmaid, even. but, better than nothing.

  3. JD, I think it’s making fun of how wonderful his “fans” think he is, can do no wrong, etc.
    Diane, I’m not sure what the secretary is in the wedding scenario. Who does all the work and gets none of the credit?

  4. I played, and besides that, Barack Obama saved his dessert for me! Onkel Hankie Pants’ cousin’s daughter is working for him (a campaign worker, now in Texas) and we have seen news clips of her standing right behind him. We’d always thought of her as the shy one in the family so the fact that he has inspired her to go door-knocking, etc. really says something.
