President Obama hits Alabama football team with sick pun

Thursday March 3rd, 2016

The Alabama Crimson Tide visited the White House on Wednesday, a trip commemorating their national championship victory over Clemson in January. 

Barack Obama, president and dad, celebrated the occasion with a fairly righteous pun. While addressing the team, Obama told the players and coach Nick Saban they could call him “O-Bama.” Like Bama, get it?

Wait, how tall is Kendrick Lamar?


​I don’t know who that one player with the bowtie is, but his genuine excitement at a mostly lame dad-joke really brightens my day.
