Statue of limitations (get it??)

Obama just can’t catch a break. As if his plummeting polls and the death of all his dreams weren’t bad enough, now it turns out people don’t even like him when he’s depicted as a cute little kid. AFP:

Indonesian authorities said Monday they are considering a petition to tear down a statue of US President Barack Obama as a boy, only a month after the bronze was unveiled in Jakarta.

The statue of “Little Barry” — as Obama was known when he lived in the capital in the late 1960s — stands in central Jakarta’s Menteng Park, a short walk from the US president’s former elementary school.

Critics say the site should have been used to honour an Indonesian and 55,000 people have joined a page on social networking website Facebook calling for the statue to be removed….

“Barack Obama has yet to make a significant contribution to the Indonesian nation. We could say Obama only ate and s (expletive) in Menteng. He spent his subsequent days living as an American,” the web page says.

A list of countries to which Barack Obama has made a significant contribution was unavailable at press time. It should be noted that the White House contains both restrooms and a kitchen.
