Funny Picture Of The Day: Insert Your Own Caption Here
Posted by representingpuroresu on 07/10/2009
Sorry, but I just can’t think of a clever enough one, not that it’s a bad thing. While picking up the daily newspapers and delivering them at my job I saw this photo on the front page of one of the papers, Financial Times, taken of President Obama at the G-8 summit receiving a gift from the representative of Brazil. The photo is after the jump, Obama’s face while showing it off here is funny.

Photo from today’s Financial Times, can be viewed at http://www.ft.com, look for a link that says “The G8 Summit In Pictures)
Now if you’ve been following sports the last month, namely soccer (or football/futbol/etc. if you don’t live in the USA), you know that the USA had the Cinderella run of runs in a recent FIFA tournament (Confederations Cup…or was it the Gold Cup?) that’s sort of a warm-up for next year’s World Cup, being about as done as done can be and needing a miracle to advance past initial pool play…said miracle happened and the US eventually made the championship game, losing 3-2 to Brazil after blowing a 2-nil halftime lead. This picture is of Obama and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, president of Brazil, who presented Obama with a soccer jersey autographed by Brazilian team members. So why the sad (silly) face, Obama? Something da Silva said? Continued disappointment over the loss? Monteczuma’s Revenge at the worst time possible? (Fancy term for diarrhea) Kaka didn’t sign the jersey? (I absolutely love that name, perhaps the best name in all soccer. I love hearing the Spanish-language announcers on TV constantly going “Kaka, Kaka, Kaka, Kaka, Kaka!” when he’s dribbling the ball or about to shoot, that’s the one thing I try to do the rare time I watch soccer-watch en espanol. Can’t always understand them but it’s more entertaining) Either way I got a laugh out of it while thinking some funny thoughts related to the game when I saw this. Come up with your own!
