    I'm thinking it is true. I can't imagine Obama just going away. He will continue to torcher us all.

    Seems really unlikely that Obama will succeed in becoming the Secretary General even if he wanted to (for which we have just a report in a "Kuweiti newspaper" as evidence). All of the Secretaries-General (except for the first one) have been from "minor" nations and the Security Council will surely block the appointment of any American candidate. There has never been an Eastern European one so I suspect the next one might come from there. Maybe someone like Donald Tusk?

    Obama says, "If you like your secretary General, you an keep your secretary General." 😵

    Nothing to worry about.

    Shame to see a joke (albeit a weak one) spoiled for the lack of proper punctuation. The capital G is also inappropriate.

    "If you like your secretary, general, you can keep your secretary, general."

    guffaw guffaw ho ho ho choke [dies]

    (The joke dies...geddit?)

    I am sure he will devise some diabolical plan. 😏

    I think you should become the next Secretary General Whodey. You could dazzle the world with your fine command of the english language. (Torcher? It's torture Whodey)🙄

    It's a little disconcerting, Finn, that even in your jokes, you come off as arrogant and condescending.

    Goodness. Was I arrogant and condescending in my fairly insipid but nonetheless humorous joke directed at Whodey? I thought I was managing to restrain my (undoubted) contempt from erupting into something more disagreeable, which is not at all the case in your arrogant and (in your fantasy) condescending response of course.
