Obama to be Greeted by 5,000 Nude Kenyans

I'm happy so many of you are glad to see me

This is from the It's a Strange World Department. Of course, it could all be (later edit: probably is) a put-on or publicity stunt by the "little known" Republican Liberty party (emphases mine):
Kenya: Nude Protest Against Homosexuality Awaits Barack Obama Next Week 
By Nancy Agutu (The Star, AllAfrica Global Media) 
A little-known party has sought permission to show US President Barack Obama the differences between a man and a woman through a nude protest. 
The peaceful demonstration against homosexuality will begin at 10 am at the Freedom Corner, on July 22 and 23, said Republican Liberty party leader Vincent Kidala. 
"The procession shall be carried out by approximately 5,000 totally naked men and women to protest over Obama's open and aggressive support for homosexuality," Kidala said in a letter to the county commander on Monday. 
"In fact our party has a network of prostitutes in Nairobi, Nakuru and other counties. This is where we shall get all these people whose number we expect to increase," he told the Star on phone. 
He said the prostitutes agreed to participate free of charge since they will lose customers if homosexuality is legalized.
Re: "our party has a network of prostitutes." Well, don't they all?

Re: "the prostitutes agreed to participate free of charge since they will lose customers if homosexuality is legalized."  Let's hear it for family values.

The letter also claims:
“The party’s main objective is for (Obama) to understand the difference between a man and a woman."
I'm not going to comment on this (beyond the above). I'm just not. This is partly because there are a few things about the above fringe party that are, shall we say, not funny. And I'm not keen, for the purpose of this particular post, on discussing, say, gay marriage or related issues.

I'm more interested in imagining what President Obama would say upon opening the door of his plane and discovering 5,000 waiting naked prostitutes (assume the airport let them gather on the tarmac):
No, no, I'm Obama. You're thinking of Bill Clinton.

  1. That's funny. Ovomit will be drooling at the smorgasbord of men. Head desk, for when face palm is nowhere near sufficient.
