Obama excited to begin moonlighting as Indonesian president next week

WORK HARDER: Obama is quite certain he’ll be able to split his time being presidents of both countries

WASHINGTON, DC — US President Barack Obama today expressed his excitement to officially begin his second job as the President of the Republic of Indonesia on October 20th, after months successfully campaigning across the Southeast Asian country using the more localised pseudonym of ‘Joko Widodo’, and keeping it secret from his family.

Accompanied by his wife and speaking from the White House lawn to reporters this morning, President Obama said that he was really glad to be finally able to come clean about his additional occupation, and said he ‘feels no shame about holding two jobs’ to supplement his income.

“A lot of people do part-time jobs or even hold two jobs to support their families, so I don’t see why I can’t do the same,” said the Commander-in-Chief. “Times are getting harder for everyone, what with rising cost of living and staggering inflation these days, a typical wage-earner like myself cannot just depend on income from one source. One salary just ain’t enough, it’s just reality of living in an urban area.

“A recent survey has found that Washington, DC is THE most expensive city to live in. Not just in America, mind you, but the most expensive in the world. And I’ve got two growing up kids. A big house to pay for every month, with its own staff to maintain. A few cars with drivers and security detail, and not to mention a plane, plus a couple of helicopters. For a government servant like me, it can be pretty tough,” he added, as First Lady Michelle put her hand on his shoulder.

Obama’s second job will see him succeeding Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono after defeating Prabowo Subianto at the polls in a tight race, receiving 53% of the votes.

“Campaigning across Indonesia was quite a challenge,” recalled Obama, who in fact spent a few years during childhood growing up in Indonesia. “I had to dig deep into my childhood memories running around my auntie’s place in east Jakarta. All those great times picking mangosteens, jumping into streams, fishing. Fortunately I still remember some Bahasa phrases like ‘Aku Cinta Kamu’ and ‘Trima Kasih.’ I had to connect with the voters; be one of them. I had to sneak out of meetings to make video calls, record speeches. I had to fake business trips to that region so that no one could smell what I was doing. And I had to do this while not getting recognised by my team — and my wife!” adding that traditional headgears and batik, as well as a different hairdo and makeup definitely helped.

The president said that despite the demands of the jobs, he believes he would be able to split his time between the two nations.

“Both government systems are pretty well-oiled, so I don’t see any problem presiding over both administrations,” he said confidently. “In fact, I’m an advocate for flexible working arrangements, and I’ve invested quite heavily in getting myself wired in. The Oval Office is really just a symbol of my US presidency, but the fact of the matter is, with mobile technology, social media tools and cloud computing, I can work from virtually anywhere. Hey there, Big J!” said Obama as he demonstrated Skyping with his future (Indonesian) vice-president Jusuf Kalla all the way in Jakarta.

“The really good thing about being the leader of these two nations is that they’re on opposite sides of the world,” said Obama. “So I can focus on one country while the other goes to sleep. Pretty convenient, really, there’s little chance of me being confused about which government I’m representing at any one time.

“I’d hate to be in an awkward situation where I’m meeting, say, President Putin, and start talking about sustained development in Jawa Tengah when I should be reprimanding him about Russia’s escalating military presence in Ukraine!” he said in jest, much to the delight of those present.

The president assured the public in both nations that he would be very careful in utilising the resources given to him as head of government.

“I’m very clear with my people that Air Force One is only used when I’m wearing my US President hat. That goes with The Beast too. Once I clock in the Indonesian office, I’ll only use Jakarta-issued facilities and even staff. I’m all about transparency and accountability.”

Michelle Obama added that while she was initially surprised by her husband’s decision to take on the second job, she’s fully supportive and would ensure he gets all the help he can from the rest of the family.

“I know he’s doing it for me and the kids. He’s not the type who takes on more things unless he really believes it’d be good for the family,” she said. “We’ve worked out some tight time management with everyone, so that we can spend as much quality time together as possible. I’m not too concerned. I mean, I’m more than capable to doing some of the errands he usually does like picking up the kids from soccer practice and all. Plus, he’s always got his iPad on him, so he’ll always be on top of things at work. No biggie.

“Besides, we’ve always needed a reason to go travel together to that part of the world, we never found the right time. Now the girls and I can always chill out in Bali or shop for batik in Bandung any time!”

Obama and Kim compare nuclear manhoods

PYONGYANG — As North Korea successfully detonated its underground test nuclear bomb and sent shockwaves across the peninsula, its leader Kim Jong-il warned the world, in particular the US, to ‘not mess with me and my colossal, planet-killer nuclear dick’.

Kim, 68, the Chairman of the National Defense Commission, Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and all-round kick-ass Man-in-Charge of the freaking country, said in a strongly-worded statement that he’s building even more nuclear bombs, and that ‘no fucking G.I.Joe in a blue berret is gonna tell me not to’, referring to the U.N.

“What? The Yoonited Nations, headed by that piece’a’shite Ban Ki-Moon, condemns my nuke test and demands that I stop playing with my atomic ballistic dicks?” asked Kim. “Well, boo-fucking-hoo. Make me.”

North Korea incurred the wrath of the world, especially neighbouring South Korea and its ally the United States, after conducting an underground nuclear weapons test on May 25, resulting in a 4.7 Richter-scale magnitude earthquake. This was the second such test, after first detonating a smaller-yield weapon in 2006. On May 26, North Korea test-fired two more short-range missiles from its east coast missile test facility. The communist nation has fired a sixth short-range missile since then. The U.N. Security Council on May 25 unanimously condemned North Korea’s nuclear test, including strong objections from China and Russia.

“Do you think I care?” asked Kim, commonly referred to locally as ‘Dear Leader’. “Like them, now I’ve also got a big nukie dickie. They don’t like that. They think only they can have radioactive schlongs. They think other people cannot have nuclear salami. Well guess what? My bratwurst’s huge, and it’s a mushroom-clouder. Deal with it. Ha-ha.”

On U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s statement that ‘for the world to not take significant and effective action against North Korea’s recent “provocative and belligerent behavior” could spark an arms race in Northeast Asia that nobody wants’, Kim responded that she may just have penis envy.

“Oy, we all know she does not have a boner, so I understand if she’s rather jealous of my redwood,” said the leader-for-life, while stroking the big red button on his desk which would, upon pressing, set into action a nuclear assault on South Korea and the region which would eventually invite armed response and level the world. “She has been itching to wear the pants since the first day she set foot in the Whitey-House, and I know it musta hurt to let ol’ Bill run the show,” he joked, pan-faced.

President Barack Obama, when told about the North Korean leader’s defiance, said that ‘the gnat obviously doesn’t know what the term ‘big dick’ really means’.

“What, Kim said that? C’mon!” said the younger, more athletic and more nuclear-powered president. “He wants to compare nukie-dickies? Has the guy ever checked the net, for cryin’ out loud? Not only do I have many, many more nuclear bombs, but my ICBMs are way bigger and packs more oomph!

“I suggest Mr Kim get some bootleg adult-movies with black actors doing the action,” said the U.S. Commander-in-Chief, swaying his hips. “Then he’ll know that the myth about black guys having the biggest, most potent warheads, ain’t just myths.”

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, when asked to comment on this dangerous situation which threatens to escalate into an all-out nuclear war, said that ‘calm minds must prevail’.

“For God’s sake, if one side starts to flex their nuclear-nether-region muscles, the other would only follow suit with a bigger response. In the end, all will lose. We must continue to pursue to resolve this conflict via diplomatic channels.

“If not, we are all fucked.”
