Barack Obama had a party in Philadelphia yesterday for Christoper Columbus, the ancient sailor who accidentally stumbled across North America and then very purposefully slaughtered everyone and took their Goldline treasure. And things got a little out of hand! First of all, someone threw a book at Obama? Rude. But more importantly: A man from Staten Island named Juan J. Rodriguez got in his birthday suit, shouted Obama’s name a few times and then waved to the President, with his junk. Juan J. Rodriguez did this for a large cash prize; he was not trying to be a malicious naked person. On the contrary, Mr. Rodriguez thinks Obama is great (you think Juan would get nekkid for someone he dislikes?). Juan is even willing to donate some of his winnings to the charity of Obama’s choosing, which of course will be Hamas or maybe Center for Death to America.
“I didn’t do anything that hurt anybody,” he said.
As for people in the crowd who might have been offended, he said he didn’t feel it was a big deal. “It’s just the human body,” he said.
He said he hoped Obama “didn’t take it that harsh.”
“I think he’s a great guy. I think he’s doing a great job for this country,” he said. Rodriguez offered to contribute some of the money to a charity of the president’s choice.
Juan J. Rodriguez also wants to use this money to help pay for his sister’s surgery. Someone owes this hero a million clams/Ameros. Please cough ’em up. [Philadelphia Inquirer]
