President Obama Meets Some Guy on Tarmac
Washington -- Analysts are trying to determine why President Obama and a large entourage met an elderly man dressed in white at Andrews air base outside of Washington. President Obama shook the unidentified man's hand warmly when he alighted from a chartered passenger jet.
In addition to President Obama and his family, Vice President Biden and his family were among the dignitaries who met the mystery man.
Internet chatter split into two camps. Some sources identified the man as "a pope," who allegedly heads a religious organization known as the "Roman Catholic Church." Other bloggers maintained this was impossible because there was "no such thing as a pope," and the Roman Catholic Church had vanished fifty years ago under mysterious circumstances.
While no one seems to be sure of the man's identity, he will be meeting President Obama at the White House Wednesday, and address a joint session of Congress Thursday. This speech is said to be the first ever to be made to both houses by a non-entity dressed in a white gown, and will be televised for reasons that are not immediately clear.
