Obama’s Brilliant Method for Stopping His Daughters From Getting Tattoos

Barack Obama demonstrated the fine art of parental jujitsu today, in an interview with the Today show's Savannah Guthrie. Asked whether his daughters think he's uncool, Obama noted,

Michelle and I have used this strategy when it comes to things like tattoos. What we've said to the girls is, if you guys ever decide you're going to get a tattoo, then Mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo, in the same place, and we'll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo.

The parental shame slingshot. Works every time.
