Last week, Barack Obama took the opportunity to visit Stonehenge - explaining that such a pilgrimage had always been an item on his bucket list. Which leaves only "pee standing up" to complete before he's ready to shuffle off this mortal coil.
Undoubtedly, the president's time at the ancient structure was spent in thoughtful self-reflection, asking himself deep questions like "I wonder if the rock-stackers who built this thing were properly unionized," and "where the hell is a shave ice stand around here?!"
Of course, it's no surprise that this president would be drawn to Stonehenge: its origin is shrouded in mystery, its purpose is unknown, and it's world famous simply for looking vaguely important and being "present."
In other words, it's exactly like Obama himself.
