The caption “Obama Crashes Oscars” appeared on the Drudge Report under the photo that is the subject of our latest Tatler Photo Caption Contest. Based on past performances, I know that Tatler fans are capable of writing much better captions, so hop to it!
Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter piece linked to the Drudge Report photo, President Obama’s man in Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein, arranged for Mrs. Obama to make the Best Picture presentation. If you read all the details and back story about how this surprise performance came about, you will also learn this startling revelation:
And when it was pitched to the first lady, Zadan told The Hollywood Reporter that her response was, “Yes, I think it’s a great idea. We watch movies all the time at the White House. Let’s do it.”
Will someone in the White House please define what the First Lady means by “all the time?”
The reason for my curiosity is as follows:
First, consider how much time President Obama spends playing golf, going on vacation, holding or attending parties, and flying around the nation campaigning for the issue du jour. Then combine all those man hours with the statement, “We watch movies all the time at the White House,” and you arrive at the question, “How many seconds are left over for President Obama to do the job he was elected to do?”
Please calculate the answer as you submit your captions.
As usual you must stay within the rules, “be nice and stay classy because the media is watching.”
Here are the winners from our last highly competitive contest, folks who did just that.
Have fun, watch the contest until the end and please no “X rated” comments.
