First Lady’s new hair style creates sensation in Ireland

by editor on May 28, 2011

Monday was a very good day for Michelle Obama. OK, well, it wasn’t actually all that good for Michelle, but it was an excellent day for snarky bloggers with juvenile senses of humor. And that pretty much pegs us.

Just as the Obamas stepped off Air Force One in Dublin, the wild Irish winds kicked up and did very strange things to the First Lady’s hair.

Where have we seen that style before? we asked ourselves. Then, suddenly, we realized that those pesky breezes had transformed the First Lady into Ed Grimley, the Saturday Night Live character played by Martin Short back in the mid-80s.

Here’s Ed dancing to Hungarian Dance No. 5 in G Minor composed by Johannes Brahms.

Go ahead. Try to tell us the hair style isn’t identical. And maybe the dancing style, too.

Isn’t that the same look she used in planet of the apes?

You look at that hairdo and it’s no wonder why people call her “Chewbacca”…

Chewbacca is probably upset that he is being compared to her. I wouldn’t blame him, I would be upset too.

It should be obvious—she’s Oogie Boogie from Tim Burton’s “A Nightmare Before Christmas.” Take a look and tell me I’m wrong!

Good thing she has a personal staff of over twenty tax payer funded attendants.
Or maybe she hired lady gaga as her fashion czarina.

First impressions are , she may be trying out for a part in the movie ” How the Grinch stole America. ”

The lips , the hair and OH how she claims to be green. We could looney lou-lou.

Ed Grimely makes the LOOK look better and I bet he dances better than she does too.

And would probably make a better first lady. At least Ed doesn’t seem to hate America. And he’s much cuter overall than Michelle.

…and he’s a genius with a triangle.

These are all admirable traits and I’m sure we could get an exploratory committee together and figure out if he has a chance to run against Obrokeback.

Finally, a hairstyle befitting her fashion sense… I must say!

She was saying to the white men around her, ” I must stop Christmas from coming!!!”

“You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch” exactly what I was thinking!

This not the best shot but as close as I could get. I know there is a better one out there somewhere!

She has no friends… her hairstylist hasn’t heard of bobby pins?
