What's the over/under on it showing up hanging by the neck in a tree somewhere?

Hey my shiatty town made Fark. And yes the comments are quite representative of this area. :/

Sitting President was Crazy Horse's younger brother.

more likely they'll find it in the woods in a few years shot up like a colander.

Bruce wonders if she should have chained it to the bench.

Well, then she would have ended up in the news for a different reason.

I figure it's probably been moved to the Oval Office so the other one can play more golf.

Looks like President Uncanny Valley.  I'd be tempted to get rid of it too.

FTA -- "Bruce wonders if she should have chained it to the bench."

John Boehner reacted to the news by saying, "I'm doing all I can to put the real deal in chains."

I'm assuming the owner bought and displayed it to honor President Obama.  I wonder if putting him in chains might not be sending that message of honor.

Only on empty suit weeks, of course.

Boehner shouldn't be jealous, he gets the whole month of October for appearing on people's front porches.

Pennsylvania? Probably some hill billies stole it to use for target practice.

Well, the picture makes me think that it wasn't made of bronze, which was my first thought. If it had looked like it was bronze I figured some doped up meth head scavenger thought "SCORE!!"

Given it wasn't, yeah, some assholes probably thought the theft was a great exercise in liberty.

Statue looks more like a black young Johnny Carson.

Also -- WNEP is teaming up with Reefer Local. To do something or other. Which is cool.

//the above does not constitute hate speech.

"Vandalism of any kind, theft of any kind is extremely disappointing."

What are they, Canadian or sumthin'?

This is the moment I've been waiting for. The moment I've been training for all my life. The President's been kidnapped by ninjas. Am I a bad enough dude to rescue the President?

*puts on sunglasses and a pair of fingerless gloves.*

You're damn right I am.

That statue looks farking creepy. I can't decide which is worse - the fact that it looks like an auton or that chin.

Even if it's on your property, it might not be yours.

Not sure where the humor from this comes from aside from a desire to hate on Obama.  It would be stranger if a president didn't golf.

Damn it! A perfect Photoshop moment missed. I mean she was going to get a Hillary one too. O and H on the front porch done up as hillbillies with banjo's and harmonica's. Good times were had by all.

You don't understand.  Fartdingo spends EVERY WAKING HOUR on the links, except when he's giving a speech from a Teleprompter or eating an arugula-edamame-and-brown-mustard falafelburger or whatever the hell those people eat.

The humor comes from the fact that he is actually golfing right now.  He is away on vacation. (everyone deserves a vacation no matter what your politcal feelings are so no need to get your panti.....er ..uh... boxers in a bunch about that.  I found the humor in the fact he is away on vacation golfing at Farm Neck.  He took 2 days to return to DC to make press briefings about the riots in Ferguson

I thought the haters on the Times Leader message board would have been distracted by the Plymouth Kielbasi Festival.  Guess I was wrong.

Obama - golf
GeBuJnr - clearing brush
Clinton - eating / having sex behind Hilary's back
GeBu - vomiting Asian food, spurning broccoli
Reagan - pony riding, napping, consulting astrologist
Carter - peanut farming, valiantly trying to keep brother Billy out of the newspaper
Ford -  falling off steps to airplanes
Nixon - bowling, brooding about "enemies" list and celebrities
LBJ - picking up dogs by their ears and showing off surgery scars
JFK - philandering and mispronouncing words that end in -a
DDE - golf

Full circle.

Plus a whole day in early April named for him.
