Where can one get an Obama Cardboard Cut out?
A friend of mine is having a bachelorette Party, and I'd like to bring it as a gift.

There will also be alcohol served...but I'm gonna try to make sure nothing happens, but will have my camera handy "just in case"! :blush:

1. Who needs a stripper when you have an Obama cutout?
Man, it's gonna be a cardboard orgy.

2. Well, I figured that whatever happens to the Obama cardboard cutout
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 03:14 PM by FrenchieCat
will not be held against the Bachelorette and her crew.
I doubt that her fiance will object...no matter what happens,
altough he did nix the idea of the male dancer I had initially planned on hiring.

Hope Obama supporters don't get mad at me if we play with the cutout a bit. :hide:

5. I used to work in a video store as a teen, and what some women did to the Swayze cutout was wrong.
:)

10. Not sure but I have to tell you my Obama cardboard
story :) I was in Dulles airport on Thanksgiving Day..walking along looking for my gate to Portland Ore and I come upon an Obama cut out and a Biden one by a kiosk that sells Obama Biden pharaphernalia. It made my heart sing and I said to this woman who was looking at some Obamawear, "Obama is single-handedly stimulating the economy." She laughed and agreed..turns out we were fellow passengers all the way to Oregon.

That would be an awesome gift for a bachelorette party :party:

Alphacat would be a nice addition, too :P

12. Especially since the Bride to be Loooooves her some Obama.
She admitted to me that she has Obama fantasies quite often. I told her not to tell her husband to be. She told me that she already had, and he told her that the same was true of him in reference to Michelle. Guess they are being honest with each other, and perhaps that's the best way to start a marriage. :shrug:

15. Cool! Yeah best way, imo.
I met a friend of my daughter's in Portland and Brigid told me a little bit about her before we were introduced. Mainly that she really liked Obama which I'm sure made my face light up.

After being introduced I said, "You like Obama, huh?" and she said, "Oh yeah!, He's my boyfriend!" So, I admitted I had a crush on him, too. :fistbump:

20. I think all couples...
should have one exception a piece. If my wife ever has the chance at Antonio Banderas she is to go for it. Same with me and Salma Hayek. No harm, no foul (at least in these two cases)

19. LOL - love this site
http://www.hollywoodmegastore.com/frame-set3.htm?0stand...

Cutouts are great to put in the windows of your home when you are away, a burglar coming around the corner and peeping into the window seeing a huge life like image just runs away, they don't bother to process the image to decide it is only a cut out. (Years ago a dear friend used to let me use his river camp, he negligected to tell me that Joe Piscabo was guarding the place, right inside the sliding glass window, coming out of the curtains.

I like to have peed in my pants as I high tailed it out of there. I went to the corner store to call and let him know and he dropped the phone, he was laughing so hard. Rat Bastard ;)

18. I don't know if I can go there.......
That's a bit more personal than I need to be. I don't want her to have to look at that power tool and be forced to think of me. LOL!

21. I saw one @ the DC National Airport gift shop
It cost $40 so I got a tin of "Breath mints you can believe in" instead.

32. I didn't know about this "fathead". Interesting.
Fathead is a life-size, hi-def, precision-cut wall graphic made of hyper-durable vinyl that's easy to put up, safe for walls and complements the decor of any man cave, office, den, living room, bedroom - well, just about any room. A Fathead IS NOT a poster, sticker, decal, cardboard cutout, wallpaper, mural, cartoon, applique or illustration - although it is a form of art. A REAL.BIG. work of art!

27. Well, there you have it
FrenchieCat making it A-ok to be sexist, women everywhere you should thank you for standing up.

I voted for Obama and I'm proud of him and the way he's treated the women in his life. I'd be willing to bet he isn't making jokes or belittling people over this.

29. If you order an Obama cardboard standup online....
Make sure the cutout is 6'2"!!! Some of the cutouts sold online are only 5 feet tall!

34. Doing something is one thing. Uploading it to My Space is quite another. However, the drama around
here about the agony of the cardboard cutout is more than a tad silly.

37. How about a wall cutout? Maybe a game of pin the ***** on the president?
