Reward offered for Obama\'s \'fro

Reward offered for Obama’s stolen ‘fro

by doglord

VENICE, CA — Candidate Barak Obama’s afro was stolen here today in a sign that the 2008 presidential campaign has grown increasingly hairy–after its recent lipsticky phase.

“You may boost a brother’s do-rag,” said Obama supporter, 50 Cent. “You do not steal his ‘fro.”

The stolen ‘fro in question belonged to the candidate’s likeness on a poster hung outside local hair salon Trim. A re-imagining of artist Shepard Fairey’s ubiquitous Obama sticker, the now-missing poster depicts the candidate with a large, blue (natch) ‘fro. Police are treating the salon’s name as an important clue in the poster’s disappearance.

“How dare a hair salon featuring a poster of Obama’s black Muslim power terrorist hairstyle call itself ‘Trim’,” McCain spokesman Rick Davis said, in an angry email to reporters.

“It’s a direct insult to Governor Sarah Palin since she’s a woman and, judging from war hero John McCain’s looks in the You Tube video where he’s ogling her backside, he could use a little trim.”

Police have identified Republican operative Karl Rove as a person of interest in the theft, largely because, in his most recent FOX News appearance, he was sporting a new “white person ‘fro” akin to that sported by fellow disgraced human, Phil Specter. That, or a very fat Goldilocks.

“The McCain campaign is obviously desperate,” said renowned Venice hairstylist, thebradmiskell. “I mean, sending Karl Rove here looking for Trim (to steal their poster) before high-tailing it to Hair Club for Men–it just reeks of Bush.”

Trim’s owner, Nicholle Roybal, is offering a reward for information leading to the return of Trim’s Obama-with-‘fro poster. Email Trim for, or better–with–information about the stolen poster’s wherabouts.

    I was pissed when I saw that this was missing. I made all of the guys leave the office to go outside so they could see the sign but it was gone.

    fantastic put up, very informative. I’m wondering why the other experts of this sector don’t realize this.
