Good lord...

More on the story here:

Brazilian carnival queen Viviane Castro parades with an image depicting President Barack Obama painted on her left leg during carnival celebrations in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Saturday, Feb. 21, 2009. Castro's stomach reads in Portuguese "for sale," a message she said represented the sale of Brazil's Amazon to the U.S.

7. They painted a scene from the Amazon and a "for sale" sign on her stomach
It was clear when it was done that Obama was pointing at the sign rather than the woman's genitals.

8. Good Lord is right.
I think I need to take some beta blockers after that one. ;)

PS---It's sad that it took me like 10 seconds to figure out he wasn't speaking English. I just thought he had a crazy accent.

13. Keeping the brand strong, obtain President Obama at WH near you. See WH.gov for details.
