Disrespecting the office...again.

He even forced his secret service detail to go barefoot along with him.

What a monster.

Come on, guys, don't write the World Net Daily column for them. Make them work a little bit.

Next, Fartbama will apologize for the Buddhists killing Muslims in Burma.

It's a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi mud!

ERMAGERD! Showing respect for dem non-Christians means he's one of them!

First thought. Damn, that guy takes a good pic.

Second thought, WTF is a Schwedagon Pagoda and is it in any way related to the infamous Schweddybalz Pagoda located farther to the south?

Teh googles confirm the "everybody gotta take their shoes off" rule and along the way provides a nice li'l shot of Kipling describing seeing the place for the first time.

"Then, a golden mystery upheaved itself on the horizon, a beautiful winking wonder that blazed in the sun, of a shape that was neither Muslim dome nor Hindu temple-spire. It stood upon a green knoll, and below it were lines of warehouses, sheds, and mills. Under what new god, thought I, are we irrepressible English sitting now?"

/Do you like Kipling?
//I dunno, I've never kippled.

Might as well just put a gaw-damn onion turret thingammy on the gaw-damn White House.

OMG! He's being respectful of another country's customs! Impeach now!
 
2012-12-08 04:08:55 PM  
Geeze! look how dirty his feet got just from walking around that place. (Oh. I didn't know he was that color all the time. Disregard previous message.)

I wonder if the secret service actually had a discussion about the logistics of taking off their shoes. Would it impact their ability to do their job in an emergency? I guess it depends on the quality of the ground they are walking on.

Pagan temples are often littered with the bones and teeth of sacrificed Christians, which would definitely slow down the ability to chase down demonic acolytes, especially the ones that fly.

Man, disrespecting the office at a shrine to some heathen idol?
 
2012-12-08 05:14:25 PM  
He looks like he wants to take off that goddamn tie next.

I can't be the only to think of CIV IV when I saw the Shwedagon Pagoda, can I?

Slacks, Subby? SLACKS??? Would you rather he wear dungarees? Or perhaps trousers?

Who the hell says "slacks" anymore?
 
2012-12-08 05:16:27 PM  
What, is no one going to post the Abbey Road cover, with McCartney barefoot in a suit?

No, you're not. Great way to (indirectly) boost science, what with getting Free Religion much earlier than you would without it.

Reagan probably did it a few times during his last years in office. But not on purpose.
 
2012-12-08 05:21:14 PM  
This is so damn cool. Amazing picture. Never thought we'd have a president like this in my lifetime. Unfortunately, I don't think this this era will be replicated, it will be missed.

Gyrfalcon: He looks like he wants to take off that goddamn tie next.


He walks and then stops: 'Wait a moment. I am the freaking president of the United States.

Man, f*ck this tie.'

I bet Fartbongo has been naked in the White House. Ronald Reagan respected the dignity of the office of President so much that he even showered in a three piece suit, with his shoes, jacket, and tie on.

That wasn't because he respected the office, that was because he was so senile he forgot to take his clothes off before getting in the shower.

Bullshiat. Dirt was to afraid of the Gipper to get anywhere near him - everything that got within 5' of the man was sterilized and purified.
