If you are a fan of President Obama (or even if you are not a fan of the Pres) you will like the interesting keyboard that has turned up over on Make:. The keyboard was designed by Ashley Lewis and she took Obama’s voice from his inauguration speech and then grabbed choice words from the speech.
I’ve always wanted to rage at someone and tell them to eat lead. Okay, so that might just be in my wildest dreams, because I don’t think I can pull something like that off – unless, of course, I actually had these gold Jell-o bullets in my arsenal.
I didn’t vote for Obama, mostly because his ears were too big and he reminded me of Ross Perot. As it turns out my irrational fear of leaders with big ears worked out in my favor, you can’t blame me for the huge deficit and the fact that our tax money paid bonuses for banking executives.
Someone – I forgot who – once said that politics is “showbiz for ugly people.” Well the United States of America beg to differ, as they now have a leader whose charms are so far above Hollywood levels that he makes betting on the NCAA Final Four absolutely bewitching, even to yours truly, a Filipino who doesn’t even care about basketball in general.
This may not be the first time we’ve seen a mix of Mario and President Obama, but it’s certainly the most interactive. Parody flash game Super Obama World replaces some classic images from Super Mario World with a grinning image of the president himself, and some of the familiar enemies and objects have been politicized.
Looks like Mario has given up his bid for the White House, and officially conceded the race to Super Obama.
Like many among him, Mario is looking for change in the Mushroom Kingdom. No longer will he be led blindly into battle to “bring democracy” to the Koopas, nor will he stand for citizens resorting to eating mysterious mushrooms in lieu of a decent healthcare system.
