That time Obama met a giant, robotic giraffe at the White House

Yup, that happened.

President Obama has played soccer with a robot and defended a bald eagle from the jaw-like grips of a robot -- and now he's talking to a giant robot giraffe.

The priceless moment happened Wednesday on the South Lawn during the first-ever White House Maker Faire, to highlight the inventions of America's brightest nerds. Because who else would create a giant giraffe on wheels with LED lights?

I’m not sure if this is more Blade Runner-esque or Hangover 3-esque. What say you?

The giraffe's inventor is Lindsay Lawlor, a man who once attended Burning Man, a gathering of for free spirits in the Nevada desert, dressed entirely as a giraffe.

How the Hell did this guy get clearance to get that close to the president?

I wonder if that thing could stick his head in it’s mouth?

Good thing the giant robotic giraffe wasn't enrolled in the VA system. The Obammunist would have just ignored it.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

At first glance, I thought the title meant that Obama made a gigantic robotic gaffe.

This is the kind of thing that impresses you when you are immature.

Incredible.

Undoubtedly a Federal Grant.

Mr. Lawlor doesn't look like the type that would be held down by a real J.O.B.

Looks more like a High School project instead of a grown-ass man project.

You'd think with his experience, he would've brought a fire-breathing dragon to the Faire…

Confounding on so many levels.

One thing that always ticks me off is when someone assembles a bunch of unnovel crap into a worthless contraption and gets labeled as an “inventor”.

This idiot invented nothing. He just made a giant erector set giraffe.

Remember when this country used to actually invent things.

Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next….then she looked at the sides of the well, and noticed that they were filled with cupboards and book-shelves; here and there she saw maps and pictures hung upon pegs. She took down a jar from one of the shelves as she passed; it was labelled ‘OBAMA PRESIDENCY’, but to her great disappointment it was empty...

Caliph Baraq invents things all the time.

Every time he speaks, he always invents strawmen.

My guess is that the SS Agent is telling himself “Shame they don’t let me have Bullets in my gun”

Looks like they flew in Dog the racist Bounty Hunter from Hawaii for a photo opp.
