Obama Naked With Unicorns (NSFW)

Obama Naked With Unicorns (NSFW)

The article asks for a response to a number of pictures of a naked POTUS with unicorns. My view for what it is worth is that POTUS is the first US president I would freely describe as being sexy. It has little to do with the power of office, more to do with looks, persona, intellect or charisma. He is just sexy, my favourite being the one above, I think it is about king’s checkmate. My least favourite ‘Ugly Betty’, I loathe fluff and that program is all about  nothingness or fluff.

My vote is for a sexy man in the buff riding a unicorn slaying the ignorant!
