Indians Send Obama Terrifying Monkey God Statue For Good Luck
Poor Barry. First he has to deal with the racists and their stupid monkey-based paraphernalia, and then he has to put up with speculation that he isn't a Christian, and now some well-meaning Hindus have somehow rolled up all this terribleness into a single hilarious gift: a monkey-god idol for him to worship. This will go over beautifully with the Bitters!
Our tale begins in Mumbai, where a gentleman named Brij Mohan Bhama says he read aTimemagazine article reporting that Barack Obama carries around a monkey charm for good luck.
"We have heard that he carries a small monkey charm in his pocket.So he is a devotee of Hanuman.That's why we want to present him with this idol," he said.
Somebody else speculates that the article just said he carried around a good luck charm, and that Mr. Bhama and his prayer group drew the natural conclusion that "he is a devotee of Hanuman." The point is Barack Obama is being shipped a two-foot-tall polished bronze idol of a monkey, which he is sure to bring out at the next rally in order to scare the shit out of white voters everywhere.
