BULLETIN: DVD'S FROM OBAMA REVEALED
OBAMA REVEALS TO KENNEDY'S TUMOR, MOVIE TITLES OF DVD'S HE GAVE TO PM BROWN
Brilliant folksy reform president, BHO, came under criticism for a gift of 25 DVDs to Gordon Brown the British PM who is the first European leader to visit Obama since his inauguration.
In what some journalists described a lapse in taste, or protocol, or maybe even upbringing, Obama presented the British leader with a pile of mass-produced plastic discs which mainly celebrate American pop-culture (which understandably may mean nothing the Brown); whereas Brown gave to Obama gifts that were unique, well-thought out, and tasteful, including a pen holder sculpted from the timber of an anti-slave ship and a Churchill first edition.
The British press is probably being too hard on BHO, and they likely underestimate his brilliance; and, with this in mind Kennedy's Tumor requested a list of the Top Ten Videos Obama presented to Brown because surely there is method to his gifting and a meaning to his choice of DVD's. Now that we have the list, everything is clear. In reverse order they were:
#10. Leaving Las Vegas
#9.: Who'll Stop the Rain?
#8. The Empire Strikes Back
#7. The Big Chill
#6. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
#4. The Great Dictator
#3. (3-way tie): King Lear; The King and I; The King of Comedy
#2. I am Legend
#1. Gone with the Wind
