President Obama's Funniest Moments at the Nerd Prom

BlogHer Original Post

Did you watch the White House Correspondents' Dinner (affectionately known as the Nerd Prom) on C-SPAN Saturday night? Well, in case you were out actually having a life of your own, you missed a lot of funny one-liners. Some were by host Conan O'Brien, but a lot of them came from President Obama himself.

You can watch the video below, but in case you don't want to sit through the entire 23 minute clip, Awesomely Luvvie has a hilarious post in which she's picked out the President's top ten one-liners.

Here are just a few of Luvvie's awesome picks:

1. “I look in the mirror and I have to admit, I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be.”

2. “I took 22 shots, made two of them. 2 hits, 20 misses. The executives at NBC asked, ‘What’s your secret?’”

3. “I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay-Z’s one.”

You can read the rest at Awesomely Luvvie's post 10 of President Obama's Funniest Lines From the Nerd Prom.

And not to be left out, former Vice Presidential contender Sarah Palin took to Twitter, with a caustic comment that was re-tweeted over 3700 times over the weekend.
