The Bushes did the most totally funnest thing today, surrounding themselves in a protective yet festive cloud of adorable children. Cute!
But eagle-eyed Bush watchers, take note! This is just the latest of many instances of George rubbing bald heads, a practice –a fetish, even– documented with painful thoroughness here. I can imagine him sitting there, seeing that tiny –yet perfectly-formed– cropped noggin, and thinking, This could be the last! This could be the last! Well, how could he resist? And why should he? He's the President of the United States!
A superb Holiday Gross-Out™, and my compliments to the director.
