#OccupyOvalOffice: A Reasonable Title

McEnroe offers:

I’m not going to make a big deal out of this. Who wants to hear somebody natter on with the whole ‘mine is better’ argument? Just because my notion, #OccupyResoluteDesk had more educational value (everyone knows the POTUS sits in the Oval Office; how many know that the furniture he’s crouching behind in the picture there is called the Resolute Desk?).

Sure, McEnroe’s idea leaves room to turn it up a notch with #OccupyOvalOrifice, for that extra bit of sphincter allusion. But what about that Resolute Desk, that remnant of HMS Resolute? Everybody and his Kenyan half-brother can offer the brown eye for the Commie guy gag, but what about the subtle British connection, given BHO’s repeated insults of Old Blighty?

But nah, I’m all about being a team player. My ideas need not receive any recognition, any praise, any traction. It’s OK. Just happy for the privilege to have served. It’s all good. I love you, man.

    Has anyone figured out who he’s blowing what he’s looking for under the desk?

    Oh, and Smitty, if I haven’t already…Thank you for your service.

    Could be looking for his credibility, but that is nowhere near.

    Hey, Smitty, I DID you a Resolute Desk one, too…

    BTW, don’t be too shy about taking credit where it’s due or you’ll wind up with OER’s grading “Commander, um, Occupant…”

    It’s obvious he’s playing a game of hide n seek.  It’s also obvious that Valerie knows where he’s hiding and is just playing along so as not to disappoint him.

    In any case, Smitty, relax.  Filmladd is letting his subconscious work on your ideas overnight.  I’m not sure what the outcome will be but there’s a fair chance it will be oddly animated and have too many legs.

    In any case with both of us committed to making your ideas happen. there’s bound to be some kind of result.  After all, the Maine didn’t stoke itself…

    In the Navy they are called Fitness Reports. In the Air Farce and Army they are OERs.
