    Default Funny ...Black Man Given Nation's Worst Job

    WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United States of America. In his new high-stress, low-reward position, Obama will be charged with such tasks as completely overhauling the nation's broken-down economy, repairing the crumbling infrastructure, and generally having to please more than 300 million Americans and cater to their every whim on a daily basis. As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind. The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and activist Mark L. Denton, "It just goes to show you that, in this country, a black man still can't catch a break."

    So, what's your point? I'm more interested in your opinion than others...

    There is no point...The Onion does a lot of spoof type stuff. It's just funny

    "A job that only one other guy applied for" ...Ok maybe not that funny but it seemed so at the time.

    It seemed this sub-forum could use a lighter topic.

    Tread lightly my friend, we have a few card shuffelers on here. BTW, I thought it was funny too.

    Just goes to show you... even by putting "Funny" in the title, denoting that it isn't a serious article, and is intended for amusement, not necessarily accuracy (though they aren't mutually exclusive)...

    Just goes to show you there are still kill-joys out there. People who are offended at the drop of a hat, or just don't have a sense of humor. Snicklefritz usually is a little better, SF musta woke up on the wrong side of politics that morning.
