Barack Obama: Plagiarist?

by doodaddy on March 8, 2008

I’m sure I’m not the first parent of a toddler to notice, but Barack Obama completely cribbed his "Yes We Can" tagline from this guy:

bob the builder

Bob the Builder, looking a little annoyed that his slogan’s gotten all political

Working Mom and I are never slow to capitalize on an opportunity to make Boobaby perform for our friends. So, naturally, we warped her little brain into believing that Bob the Builder is Barack, and he’s running for president. To wit:

[audio:Barack Obama.mp3]
(Press the "play"  arrow — it’s about 20 seconds long.)

And while I know everyone’s all hot for the Barack "Yes We Can" video that wrapped its way around the ‘net a couple of weeks ago, I gotta say, Boo just got a little bored by it. This one’s more her speed:

Bob the Builder for President!

That’s just brilliant.

(except for the sound clip which sounds like Alvin and his buddies on acid)

What, you mean Alvin’s *not* on acid?

Now THAT’s funny and thanks for the tech suppot. Sadly, I’m sure I WON’T get it, so I’m waiting for tomorrow to even try. Enjoy a Saturday night!

That’s the rockingest version of Bob the Builder I’ve ever heard. I had no idea he was so gangster.

Um… gangsta, Avery… gangsta!

I never dealt with the tech stuff today. It was just too nice out to figure it all out and I BBQ’d instead. Put the whole grill together too!!!!!!! I AM a rockstar!!!!!!! Anyway, I’ll fix the glitch when I have time to care. Thanks for the laugh!
