People, people
We gotta get over
Before we go under
Hey country!
Just changed!
Brand new funky president, yeah!

-"Funky President (People It's Bad)" by James Brown (slightly paraphrased)

Thanks to all the drunken, fire-works and shouting-accented post-election revelry that took place outside my apartment's window I got very little sleep, so I'm not quite up to writing anything clever. Maybe later, but for now please accept one of my patented crappy Photoshop numbers and the words of the late James Brown.

Black Man Given Nation's Worst Job

WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United States of America. In his new high-stress, low-reward position, Obama will be charged with such tasks as completely overhauling the nation's broken-down economy, repairing the crumbling infrastructure, and generally having to please more than 300 million Americans and cater to their every whim on a daily basis. As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind. The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and activist Mark L. Denton, "It just goes to show you that, in this country, a black man still can't catch a break."
