Skip to comments.Obama's Stupid "Pit Bulls are Delicious" joke...
Posted on 04/30/2012 5:08:21 AM PDT by discipler
President Obama tells a joke that is just plain tasteless and nonsensical. Who writes this stuff for him! Obama: "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull?" "A pit bull is delicious." First off, I doubt that a pit bull is delicious meat. To say it's "delicious" is probably a stretch unless you have no taste....hmmm. But the second part is the inclusion of the "hockey mom". It's nonsense. How is a hockey mom delicious or not delicious. Has he eaten hockey mom? Is is a metaphor for something negative about hockey moms? Did he just slam hockey moms? The President is so interested in trying to deflect the story from his own book that he recalled eating dog when he was young. So now he's yucking up jokes that are tasteless and pure nonsense. Good grief. Photo is the smile he flashed immediately after telling the "joke". Michelle photo is her looking at him like "I'm going to brain him when I get him alone."
He is The One. Everyone thinks everything The One says is a) brilliant; b) funny; c) witty; d) all of the above.
In 2008, Rev. Wright said blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God damn America.”
Each day, Obama is proof that perhaps we have been damned.
I learned a new word that is absolutely great!
Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-Ra-cy) - A system of government where the
least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing,
and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves
or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the
confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
But there is a problem. The subject is bizarre and distasteful to most Americans. Eating dogs is not considered a light or joking matter. In the US, eating dogs is quasi taboo. He wrote about it in his book so he can't disown it, but he really shouldn't call attention to it, that's not going to ingratiate him to anyone. Once again, IMHO. Your mileage may vary.
Yucking up jokes that are tasteless and pure nonsense.
The man-child hasn’t grown up any in the last three years.
As a Minnesotan, I must plead guilty - and I am far from alone.
Again, my apologies ladies for my crassness.
Excellent point....if you had done the coaching for the President, he might have pulled it off...but as he told it, it just sucked.
The disastrous end result of installing a minority into a position they are completely unqualified to hold for the sake of perceived social "justice".
I think this was just so out there and shouldn’t have gone “there” with that one.
“How is a hockey mom delicious or not delicious. Has he eaten hockey mom?”
I see banishment in that one. LMAO
Maybe I’m just slow this morning, but—tastelessness aside—I just plain don’t get the joke. Maybe his teleprompter has a sloppy autocorrect feature?
Not only is Obama abhorrent and reprehensible... he’s also damn weird.
Good going, America, for putting this freak in office.
Thanks for the explanation. In retrospect, it seems obvious. But for me, when I heard “hockey mom,” that converted immediately to Sarah Palin. Then the joke became Sarah Palin vs. a pit bull, and incomprehensible.
May not have been a joke. Kenyans had cannibals in their culture too, didn’t they?
My GOd! That woman is ugly! Wow!
Another good one.
Fr should publish a dictionary. Lots of super smart people post on here.
I learn more everytime I visit.
Oh, I think that was the intent. If you were a lefty you were supposed to think "oh boy, he's going to zing Sarah Palin now!" and if you were on the right you were supposed to go "oh here they go again with the tired Sarah Palin abuse" then the surprise is he makes a crack about eating the dog. Whoa, didn't see that coming, wow, how funny! Hah hah hah. That's the way the script went. Trouble is, dog eating is one of the few issues left and right are pretty much in synch with, we all agree it's weird and unpleasant.
The joke is a play on Palin’s ‘08 acceptance speech, when she described herself as a hockey mom and then asked and answered what the difference was between a hockey mom and a pit bull—lipstick.
It was clearly a shot at Palin, but the original post misses the point by saying it was nonsensical—it was a turnaround of a well-known Palin quip.
He was directing it at Sarah Palin. The comments he makes just before the hockey mom/pitbull joke referenced Palin on the today show.
Of course it was a play on Palin’s well-known line, given that she also described herself as a hockey mom—which is how it is also dig against her.
I don’t think it’s particularly funny, but it isn’t nonsensical.
The difference is there’s an off chance he might nibble on the pit and live to tell about it.
The joke is less about cannibalism and more of a double extender, aimed at the folks who find the teabag jokes humorous. Just more vulgarity from a vulgar man.
There was no shot at Palin. The setup was intended to make you expect a shot at Palin but then the target of the joke turned out to be Obama and the dog. He was poking fun at himself, not Palin. Now some things aren't funny and so it was a poor choice but there are plenty of things Obama does to get me irate, implying a joke about Palin was coming but then making it about himself isn't one of them.
On the other hand, maybe the point (as some contend) really was a slam that Sarah Palin isn't delicious, whatever that means. I don't think so. But whatever, I'm probably wrong (I am about most things, just ask my wife)
According to Larry Sinclair, Obama would find “hockey dads”
Excellent word/phrase coinage by both of you! I'm going to "spread the word" about each of them.
I predict that your FReepmail inbox is suddenly gonna get very full.
Thank you :)

Actually the funny part is how much The Won continues to fear Sarah Palin almost four years later. He's such a wuss!
Hence the problem with the joke: not having a problem with the punchline, he thought it a clever & funny spin on another joke ... but the audience found the punchline so offensive they never noticed the reference.
You’ll like another word then:
Polypragmonocracy - Government of/by busybodies.
Even Michael Vick did not find it funny.
Obama is strange, and very off-putting.
We watched the video of him firing the “Marshmallow Gun” with the child who created it.
As we watched Obama speak too loudly, and move with jerky, clumsy body language, my teen sons remarked that Obama acted like the lonely kid nobody liked... trying too hard and socially awkward.
And he is running our country. With great results,might I add.
kakistocracy -- government by the worst.
Nobody wants food that bites back.
Is there such a thing as “Idiocracy”?
If there wasn’t, there is now.
Okay, who is going to write the “Obama Cookbook?” Imagine such culinary delights as:
Dog meat in lard sauce.
Roasted primate bush meat thin sliced on a bed of arugula.
Long pig with Sotoro sauce.
It’s both—a slam at Palin and a jab at himself meant to defang the dog issue, no pun intended.
Seeing what Obama is married too I am totally convinced this was actually a bestiality fantasy on his part.... or maybe an actual recall of one of his sexual conquest....
I’m not sure, but is she the only actual pol who dared to venture into the dog meat issue directly?
