Once upon a time the animals of the forest decided to hold an election to see who would be their president. After a grueling primary season, the two sides nominated their candidates: Tortoise McCain and Hare Obama.

The news spread like wildfire through the forest, and all the news reporters showed up to watch Obama train.

“Mr. Obama,” said the CNN correspondent, “how fast can you run to Washington?”

“Washington!” scoffed Obama. “Watch this!!”

And with that, he disappeared in a blaze over the horizon. Before the reporters could even take a breath, he reappeared with souvenirs from Europe.

“I got this for you in Berlin,” he said to one reporter. “This came from Paris for you.”

“McCain,” said the NBC reporter, “where can you go to show us your speed?”

“Um, uh… does anyone want some French fries from Burger King or a bratwurst from German Town?” he replied.

The reporters broke out into hysterical laughter, and silly old Mr. McCain retreated to his house to train for the big day.
