    You can put mustard on a hog-jowl; but it’s still a hog-jowl!

    Despite being at the same table, the Obamas and Bidens still manage to self-segregate.

    I know times are tough, but do we really have to schedule all State Dinners at Arby’s?

    That’s what you get for asking the Clintons about good restaurants on Penn Ave.

    “Jill, I don’t give a sh*t what your husband got elected to do.  Just make sure he keeps his mouth shut for the next four years. And do yourself a favor and stay off Oprah’s couch!”

    As an interested Michelle Obama and a voracious Joe Biden made the most of it, the jaded president-elect couldn’t take another bite after the brief glimpse of Jill Biden’s twenty-three year old pubic hair collection.

    OK, Jill, we already know youre a dumb blond, so it’s not necessary for your to blather on any more about any state secrets.  And Joe, you’d better have more discretion in controlling this beeotch.

    Michelle to Jill: “Oooh girl… I know they didn’t give you sunny side up when you ordered overeasy.”
    Jill to Everyone: “This arrangement of sausage and eggs is quite sexual.”
    Obama to Joe: “I’m so glad I picked you for VP… I can’t wait to play 7 minutes in heaven with your wife in the oval office.”
    Joe to Obama: “Yeah, she is sex on a stick isn’t she… Mind if I have a go with your ho?”

    Hey Biden, for once, how about not ducking out to the Men’s room when the check comes?
