Took this picture last year in Texas, forgot to put it up.

Can anyone explain the humor to me?

It is a reference to the film The Hangover. Actually, it is moreso a reference to some of the merchandising of said film.

Explanation:
The plot centers on a group of friends that got wasted at a bachelor party, only to wake up and find that the groom is missing and they cannot remember anything at all from the previous night. They have to figure out what happened so they can find the groom, with only a few clues to go on. Clues like a tiger in their hotel bathroom, a missing tooth, and a baby from out of nowhere. It is actually better than it sounds.

Anyway, one of the characters spends some time carrying the baby in a harness and gives it some shades, so it looks very similar to the shirt I linked to. The shirt had a bit of moderate popularity, and so is easily recognizable to folks familiar with the film.

How is Obama connected to this, though?

In the film, the guys embark on a night of drunken and drugged up debauchery only to wake up with a wrecked hotel room, a stolen tiger, a chipped tooth, the groom missing, a stolen cop car, a naked Asian gangster in their trunk, and stuck caring for a mysterious baby. Not to mention terrible hangovers.

The shirt, proclaiming Obama to be worse than a hangover, seems to be implying that America got all drunk on hope & change & Bush hate and ended up with the country in disarray while stuck with Obama.

I didn’t even read that much into it. Just looked at it as a stupid, stupid caricature.

Normal 71yrs?  I thought we at least made it to 79 or 80 by now.

Oh yeah, the anti-gay stuff is idiotic too...

Assuming that sign is accurate, which I highly doubt, maybe if fuckwads like that would stop gay-bashing and bullying LGBT teens, the death rates would drop and life expectancy would rise.

That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Awesome! Way to throw your temper tantrum by being socially irresponsible and a douche at the same time! Seriously, of all the good reasons not to hire people (and there are several), you find a truly stupid reason.

What on earth are they doing behind that sign? ;D
In paranoia I find genius / But the ice-dreams have come

yet inextricable thoughts still weave / Introspection
fabricated for battle / No time has been wasted
