Zero long has been a big fan of marshmallow canons, particularly those possessed by older, white homosexual males who frequent the Man’s Country bath house on the outskirts of Chicago.

LOL. NOT defending Obama, but...

Very reminiscent of when Baby Bush was mesmerized by the UPC scanner at the grocery checkout.

Will we ever elect a truly wise leader? I doubt it...

Everyone I know has taken the science class where these “cannons” are made. From the look on his face, I’d say Bamster never took that class.

I can see that he was very impressed.

And I worry that the end result will be further cuts to the Pentagon budget.

In a fit of inspiration, Obama will order the military to come up with a real-life version of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

The kid can bring his marshmallow cannon into the White House, but if he brought it to school (i.e. publik skool), he would be expelled and arrested.

A long time ago, a buddy of mine stuffed candy bars in a LAW rocket during a training exercise. I have carried the image of someone being splattered with Snickers ever since. He did not want to bite the head off a snake and cook it up, so he'd volunteered to carry the LAW for his own reasons. Pretty Machiavellian of him, but he was that type through and through.

First, I’m saddened that a PVC airgun made the cut in a national science fair competition. Not exactly scientific discovery stuff.

Second, I’m shocked the kid wasn’t cuffed by ATF agents, before having his gun shipped to Mexico.

I am reading ‘With the Old Breed’, E.B. Sledge’s horrific account of the Marines’ landing at Peliliu and Okinawa. It is so incredibly brutal what these young boys went through for our country that I feel shame for the relative life of ease I have lived.
Then I see this fool with a look of amazement at a friggin ‘nerf’ gun and my emotions turn to anger and great sadness, wondering if our greatest years have passed. We have a president...amazed at a PVC air gun. God help us.
