What do you get the man who just passed sweeping health insurance reform that has eluded United States presidents for nearly a century? What could possibly be a better gift than a monumental and historic political victory such as universal health care?
Well, that’s easy…a mogwai. Or a proton pack. And maybe some batarangs.
Thanks to artist Dean Trippe and his website Bearsharktopus-Man, President Obama has received all of those and more. Trippe’s collection of Photoshops, called “Barack Obama Looking at Awesome Things,” is itself an awesome thing. It pounds my twin sweet spots of political nerdery and just plain nerdery, kind of like LOL Presidents. Enjoy a sampling.
