  1. Michael Hamm says:

    Mr. President, per your request I brought you the best grass available – Kentucky Bluegrass.

  2. Mike says:

    1. We got you a shrubbery

    2. we are the Knights who say Nee!

  3. FormerHostage says:

    The off-Broadway production of “Little Shop of Horrors.”

  4. FormerHostage says:

    I got the pot like you asked…and I went ahead and put a plant in it.

  5. FormerHostage says:

    With all the manure Barack slings around, that plant should be the size of a redwood by the end of summer.

  6. Ugh says:

    The GOP brings President Obama their latest health care reform proposal: eat more greens.

  7. yetanotherjohn says:

    After intense White House lobbying, President Obama held a news conference to announce the potted plant would vote for the health care bill.

    When he saw that smile, the Irish Chia Pet company marketer knew he had scored big.

    After Fox, the president next went on the Gardening channel.

    What are the odds that every clover would lose just one leaf after Obama took hold of the plant?

    A minor diplomatic incident then occured when Obama dropped the plant when he bowed.

    Eric Holder ordered Miranda rights to be read to the corpse after secret service agents shot the Irish prime minister for pinching Obama for not wearing green.

    Why is this man smiling? Because he does inhale.

    Bloggers on the left denounced the obvious racism of bringing ‘greens’ to Obama.

  8. floyd says:

    Mr. President, It appears that your Chia Head is as out of control as your presidency!

  9. scotty says:

    American People: Mr. President please come to our office and bring your plant

  10. scotty says:

    Michael Moore coughs up Michele’s health food diet

  11. FormerHostage says:

    That’s one healthy looking pansy. The plant looks good too.

  12. FormerHostage says:

    Here’s something to put into that hole you and the Democrats are digging for yourselves.

  13. The Irish President may have been all “Slainte”, but the American people were becoming increasingly “Pogue Mahone”.

  14. Triumph says:

    Obama laughs it up as he destroys the country

  15. (Not a contest entry) The Irish PM isn’t in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day?

  16. Hodink says:

    National Medical Marijuana Awareness Month ~ Like Wow

  17. President Obama takes a break from the spendin’ o’ the green to get some Kilkarney Windowsill.

  18. Maggie Mama says:

    I understand, Mr. President, that you really enjoy a good tsmoke.

    If you have the First Lady grow this in her garden, you’ll be able to reduce the use of prescription drugs here at the White House.

    Yes, Mr. President, the shamrock brings luck but I’m afraid nothing will help your Healthcare bill.

    Yes, I know you’re Irish, Mr. President, and I also know you must have kissed the “Blarney” Stone and more than once!

  19. Maggie Mama says:

    (Aside to Charles Austin: Until very recently St. Patrick’s Day was big in the States but NOT in Ireland. Visiting the US President with the obligatory bowl of shamrocks became a tradition which they seem to be keeping.)

  20. gi jane says:

    ch-ch-ch-chia pet medical marijuana

  21. Phil Smith says:

    “Nice arugula!”

    “And here I thought Joey was the vegetable.”

  22. Clovis says:

    Continuing his UK outreach program, President Obama returns the historical shamrocks to Ireland. (Not pictured: non-regional DVD’s of Darby O’Gill and the Little People and The Boondock Saints)

  23. FormerHostage says:

    Geeeze! Is there a plant in EVERY audience at Obama’s speeches?

  24. Elmo says:

    What … me worry?

    Life’s a bowl of cherries chewy green kwap (in Oganda).

  25. Elmo says:

    the fat man: Mr. President … yyyyyyour pants are on fire!!

    Pwezzidunce: Keep smiling! We haven’t passed health care reform destroyed America yet.

  26. Elmo says:

    Find the potted plant.

  27. (Sesame Street variant on Elmo, with bonus double entendre) Which of these things is not like the other?

  28. I’ve got green regulators and government cheese,
    Some fifty healthcare panels and some income tax cheats,
    Some democrats and elephants, but sure as you’re born,
    You’re never gonna see no public option.

  29. Sadie says:

    Arugala for the Thugala – a pair that beats a three-of-a-kind.

  30. The only green shoots America is likely to see this year.

  31. Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen: “I thought I hated the British, but damn.”

  32. President Obama” “Yes! There will be growth in the spring!”

  33. (Above I meant Kilkarney Windowbox rather than Kilkarney Windowsill. It is a rare transatlantic graft of the infamous Toledo Windowbox, and I mistyped. Sorry)

  34. al bee says:

    I prefer my lettuce in crisp $100 bills

  35. Dodd says:

    Apparently the Chia Pet of your head was discontinued. This was the best I could do.

  36. Elmo says:

    And I promise if elected there will be two soy, tofu, and wheat grass chickens in every pot.

  37. elliot says:

    Obama: Shut up and keep smiling, I can sell this ‘weed’ in the hood to help pay for my health care bill…

  38. Elmo says:

    Mr. Prime Minister, please accept this token of my esteem …. my brain. No really …. I ain’t using it.

  39. Elmo says:

    the fat man: But Mr. President …. this isn’t a box, and those aren’t chocolates.

    pwezzidunce: You’ll eat it and like it!

  40. Elmo says:

    Today we honor my predecessor … President Bush.

  41. Maggie Mama says:

    “…..and according to Section 117 Paragraph 8 Line 1 on page 1945 of the Healthcare Bill every American will receive their own “pain” plant to eliminate the need for many unnecessary medical procedures.”
