Obama snaps up crocodile insurance Down Under... (and Michelle gets £30,000 if he's eaten)

U.S. President Barack Obama snapped up an unusual gift on a visit to Australia this week - £30,000 worth of crocodile insurance.

The official gift, worth about A$10 or just over £6, was given to mark his stopover in Australia's tropical north, home to some of the world's biggest and deadliest crocodiles.

If he had been attacked and eaten during the visit his wife Michelle would have received a £30,000 pay-out.

Mr Obama told about 2,000 U.S. Marines and Australian troops at the RAAF Base in Darwin: 'I was just presented with the most unique gift I have ever received as president - crocodile insurance. My wife, Michelle, will be relieved.

'I have to admit when we reformed health care in America, crocodile insurance is one thing we left out.'

Darwin is the capital of the remote and sparsely populated Northern Territory, made famous in the Crocodile Dundee movies.

The Territory's Chief Minister Paul Henderson took out the crocodile insurance policy for the president and presented him with the certificate as a memento of his visit.

Mr Henderson told Sky: 'We've got the crocodile insurance ready to go for Michelle and the kids - 50 grand if the president does get taken.

Probably a smart move.

If you add a dumbass like him to a croc-filled environment you’re asking for trouble.

so...ummm... is that £ 30,000 if he is eaten by the croc... or £30,000 to have the croc eat him? it’s a bit unclear

Obama never passed up anything that can waste money.

Did grouchy old Mitch give him an accidental elbow towards a croc pit or something?

Michelle gets £30,000 if he's eaten and the innocent but hungry crocodiles would be accused of being associated with the TEA party.

It is a shame that America can’t buy insurance to cover the destruction caused by Obama.
