Physical Flaws, Part 1

ANOTHER MOUTH TO FEED

I’m not one to poke fun at folks’ physical flaws, but… has anyone noticed that the president of the United States has grown an extra mouth flap in the chaffed wattle just beneath his chin? This could be bad. If the spare mouth starts talking, people are going to listen. Odds are, the new oval orifice will parrot the political beliefs of the old oval orifice. But if the spare mouth starts giving orders contrary to those of the Commander In Chief, the constitution provides no clear directions as to which mouth should be obeyed. Isn’t this something the founding fathers should have foreseen?
