"(I Wanna Be) Teacher's Pet" - Frankie Avalon, 1957
Coffee almost spurted out of my mouth this morning, as I heard the story about what Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has done as part of his birthday celebration. He's released a DVD called "Let's Learn Judo With Vladimir Putin"!
I began to think about DVDs that other world leaders (or those of the wanna-be variety) could release.
George Bush: "Let's Learn to Have a Huge Vocabulary" (except that he would pronounce the final word of the title the way my father used to, as a joke...vo-ca-BULL-airy)
Gordon Brown: "Let's Learn the Natural Method of Smiling"
The two US Presidential candidates could release DVDs with similar themes...
Barack Obama: "Let's Learn to Sound Like JFK When We Debate"
John McCain: "Let's Learn to Sound Like Ronald Reagan When We Debate"
And then there are the candidates for VP...
Joe Biden: "Let's Learn to Speak Very, Very Concisely"
And, last but certainly not least...
Sarah Palin: "Let's Learn to Hunt and Field-Dress a Moose Like a Good Ol' Alaskan Hockey Mom Would"
