‘Leaves a bad taste in your mouth?’ Journo scores Obama bubble gum in Tanzania [pics]

Good grief! So, that happened.



Contains fairy dust and unicorn horns!

Well, maybe a Chicklets charm offensive is  better than charm offensive donuts or a Carney photo montage. And a pack of “magic” gum is surely better than what was done in Burma: We are still shuddering over that creepy mural. So, there’s that?

    Bubble gum–tough to chew, impossible to swallow, makes fragile constructions full of nothing but hot air that pop at the slightest provocation…

    Maybe this wasn’t so much a “cheerleading” move as a metaphorical one…

      And it sticks to you so you can’t get rid of it.

      • CatHerder

        And it takes forever to get it out of your hair.

          Speak for yourself. I haven’t had that problem in decades!

          • CatHerder

            You and my son-in-law. I think that’s one of the main things he hates about me 😉

          lol, bravo!

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          Don’t forget the bottom of your shoe! Peanut butter got it out of hair^^

    • Jeremy

      ha ha I love the description.

  • Jennifer

    Well, Obama certainly is in his own little bubble..

  • Maxx

    Oh great…it’s not enough that he’s already celebrated by every starry-eyed young liberal in every classroom, now he’s stuck to the undersides of their desks.

    • ObamaFail

      I always flush my gum down the toilet. So it’d be going in the right place if I had Obamagum.

      • stuckinIL4now

        except you’d flush it before chewing, right?

    • TocksNedlog

      With an RFID chip inside.

  • ObamaFail

    This isn’t the oddest piece of Obama merchandise I’ve seen. There is a dildo with Obama’s head on it called “head of state.”

    • Joe W.

      A “butt plug” would be a more appropriate and better seller….

      • TocksNedlog

        That’s Biden.

        • Billie Slash

          I actually think of Biden as just the butthole to Obama’s buttplug.

  • b_truit

    Guess the Kool Aid wasn’t enough for some.

  • TocksNedlog

    “Magic” Negro Gum?


  • TocksNedlog

    Is it Nicotine gum?

  • TocksNedlog

    A product that causes you to move your mouth without saying anything?

    How apt.

  • TocksNedlog

    WARNING: Vice Presidents are advised NOT to attempt walking while using this product.

  • Steve_J

    Is this today’s version of “Billy Beer”?

    It leaves something in your mouth just like Owebama says he won’t do, he promises, you guys.

    Magic Obama Mint must have sold out again. The truckload delivery is on Fridays.

    • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

      Aha, well done.

    • Jeremy

      kudos sir.

  • Clete Torres

    And it only costs $17trillion a pack.

    Bubble gum – what a perfect symbol of this politician.

    • Adela Wagner

      Wish it was just that easy to spit him out.

  • Debbie Butler

    No thanks. Don’t want that gum.

  • AmericanMom

    ABC gum (already been chewed) for anyone who disagrees with him.

  • Jeremy
  • stuckinIL4now

    Careful it might make your teeth fall out.

  • mhojai

    When kissing his ass just isn’t enough…there’s obamagum…
    @markknoller And just like Obama the taste runs out quickly and it’s hard to swallow.
