Book Description

Humorous Headlines from Obama's First Year in Office

2009 was a colorful year like no other with its shift of national economies into record red ink, the rise of America’s first black president, and the drooling passion for ten-foot-tall, blue-skinned 3D aliens. It’s no wonder that headlines like these were ignored by reputable news organizations:

- Tea Party protests in Washington get ugly as milk and lemon factions turn on each other.
- Post Office to change its name to "United States Netflix Delivery Service."
- Oil rises to $78 per barrel on fears that oil may rise to $80 per barrel.

Stuffed with over 500 essential and frivolous headlines, Break the News to Me Gently will make everyone else in the unemployment line wonder what’s so funny.
