In the face of global warming, the White House wants your drinks to remain cool.
Whoever manages President Barack Obama’s Facebook page just posted a peculiar status: “If you’re planning for a frosty end-of-the-week beverage, we’d recommend this Joe Biden coozie as just the thing.”
The link takes you to the Barack Obama 2012 store, where you can purchase this item. The Obama store asks about whether you need to keep your “soda” cold, but the Facebook post is a bit less sober.
The Biden “CHEERS CHAMP” coozy is an especially odd choice considering the vice president doesn’t even drink — he famously drank a non-alcoholic Buckler at the “Acted Stupidly” Beer Summit.
The White House is trading off Biden’s myth as the cool uncle. And that’s…pretty awesome.
The amazing thing is that the Facebook status — posted just after 11 am ET on Friday — could very well have been ripped from the same issue of The Onion that recently brought us this gem:
But it’s real. This ain’t The Onion. Buy a coozy, save the world.
What do you think about the president’s new plan to combat rising [beer] temperatures?
