President Barack Obama’s decision to hire non-union workers to staff his birthday-party fundraiser isn’t sitting well with Big Labor, and Obama’s upcoming milestone has inspired a series of running jokes on Twitter.

Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reports that union members are “OUTRAGED” at Obama’s decision to staff the party with non-union help. Why avoid the union label? Hoft explains: “If POTUS is late, and [the] party goes late, they would face MASSIVE overtime [expenses] if they do not feed the crew enough meals on time.”

Obama also has a Twitter problem heading into his birthday as the hashtag “#ObamaBirthdayPartyGames” made its debut, mocking the president’s problems, both real and perceived.

Some tweets with this hashtag are witty jabs, crafted on themes of children’s birthday party games. Columnist Michelle Malkin is driving the conversation on Twitter, sparking her followers to come up with their own jabs.

What follows is a by-no-means comprehensive list of the funniest “#ObamaBirthdayPartyGames” tweets The Daily Caller has seen so far:
