Today in Life-size Reproductions of Barack Obama’s Likeness


A bronze statue of a 10-year-old Barack Obama was officially unveiled yesterday in Jakarta, Indonesia, where Obama spent a few years as a child. True to reality, the statue depicts Obama’s little-known skill at attracting butterflies. Meanwhile, though the real Obama angered some Norwegians by declining to attend the customary Nobel Peace Prize events, he was at least able to make the “Save the Children” benefit concert in the form of a smiling cardboard cutout.
