Lincoln’s portrait replaced with picture of first dogs

WASHINGTON – In an announcement from the White House today the portrait of the sixteenth president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, was removed from its location in favor of an image of the Obama’s Portuguese Water Dogs Sunny and Bo. 

The decision was made by the First Lady Michelle Obama, who was not shy in explaining why she had the portrait removed.

“It just always bothered me every single time I walked by it. It looks like some creepy old malnourished white guy with sunken cheeks and bad posture. That’s nothing to be proud of, and honestly it sets a bad example. It’s not like the guy has done anything for us recently anyways. He’s been dead for like what? Three hundred years now? At least with Sunny and Bo up there it makes the room a little more warm and inviting instead of some dark picture of some dead white guy.”

The Lincoln portrait will be most likely kept in storage next to the portraits of Arthur, Cleveland, Harrison, and Taft, who are also scheduled for removal as bad role models in the First Lady’s campaign against obesity.

“Who wants pictures of fat and old white guys in their home? It’s really disturbing and I shouldn’t have to look at them,” stated Mrs. Obama. 

Until the replacements for the portraits are determined, the First Lady will be content having blank spaces on the wall while she decides on something more appropriate.
