If they do it won't be the first time. President Calvin Coolidge raised chickens at the White House.

Maybe a couple goats would be cool too.

Wait until they run afoul of the USGOVHOA

/Wait. What? Flags on the lawn? That's not allowed. You're going to have to take those flagpoles down or EVERYONE is going to think they are allowed to put those up.

Of the two roosters who preside over the ranch, Obama was quoted as saying "sorry, Mitt, but these are the only cocks that'll be living here next year."

It's either that or they know something about our dollar tanking.

Chicken Ranch?

That would be awesome. Everybody would lose their shiat. He'd be trolling everybody.

Fish don't fry in the kitchen;
Beans don't burn on the grill.
Took a whole lotta tryin',
Just to get up that hill.
Now we're up in the big leagues,
Gettin' our turn at bat.
As long as we live, it's you and me baby,
There ain't nothin wrong with that.

Well we're movin on up,
To the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pie.

With how the economy is going, subsistence farming needs to be encouraged more.

Didn't he also have sheep wandering the lawns to keep the grass trimmed?

No, that was President Woodrow Wilson. However, President Coolidge did have a pet raccoon named Rebecca.

Why stop at chickens? If your going to have a real farm, you'll need of couple of milk cows and a few hogs; maybe 2 or 3 goats.

ManateeGag: this should make the GOP happy. they'll have something to fark.


I'm a Republican.

I love that he home brews, like me.

I love that he has a vegetable garden, like me.

I would love if he raised chickens, because I have always wanted to do that.

I just think his policies and methods are shiat;

Yes, I am a racist.

They already have Congress, chock full of lame ducks, chicken hawks and egg-suckers.

Real Americans despise gardens, beer, and chicken.
 
2012-09-13 10:04:07 AM
Of course everybody in the thread jumps straight to the "black people love chicken" meme, when it should be a much more damaging stereotype:

The Obamas are farking urban hipsters. Home brew, organic tomatoes, beehives, and now urban chicken farming? Next he's going to be riding a fixie and wearing skinny jeans.

Thanks for the reference for The Good Life.

Episode- Our Speaker Today... when Lenin, the rooster, escapes and hops on the Route 71 bus to Kingston with Tom in hot pursuit. Felicity Kendall was the speaker at the boys' remand center .The audience was captivated with her talk on self sufficiency. Afterwards, one of the lads said it wasn't the subject the interested them but they didn't want Barbara to get nervous and move about. Where she was standing the sun shone through her clothes.

British humour.

We keep 3 or 4 chickens here at the Berkeley estancia, aka the backyard garden. They eat bugs and kitchen scraps and give us green and brown shell eggs. I work from home and sometimes the person on the phone says, omg do you live on a farm?

mama2tnt: /What about e-joints?


They are called vaporizers, and they are awesome. Or so I have heard.

I would love to have a chicken coop in my garage, but my jerk of a mayor vetoed an ordinance that would have allowed it.
 
2012-09-13 11:24:09 AM
Keep farking those chickens, GOP.

The White House has a bowling alley in its basement but no solar panels on the roof. What are our priorities?
 
2012-09-13 11:34:45 AM
I wanted to have a few hens when I bought my house. Technically you aren't allowed to raise any non-pets unless you have at least an acre which I don't. People in this neighborhood have kept a few anyway and nobody cares, as long as you don't have a rooster so I still may.
 
2012-09-13 01:18:52 PM
Oh crap, Obama must have caught something on one of his trips here to Portland. Next, he'll be wearing ill-fitting flannel, grow a handlebar mustache, and ride "Bicycle One" everywhere...
 
2012-09-13 02:27:42 PM
I agree with the pastry chef; White House chickens would be cool. Because hens that get to roam around have a more varied diet than battery hens, their eggs have a yolk with a richer color. Just think of the gorgeous custards!

/pastry chef in training
//wishes she could have hens, but there's nowhere in the yard to put a coop that's the required 50 feet from all neighboring properties
///also dad would probably have an aneurysm
 
2012-09-13 03:08:44 PM
I'd have no problem with that - my neighbor got some chickens during the summer, and now we have fresh eggs, the occasional bird, and a big giggle hearing their cranky old rooster try to do his cawing.
