The outgoing president Bush left in the on the desk in the Oval Office a folder for Barack Obama, marked '44' (for the 44th President). What do you think was in it?
(There's a photo of it here http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2009/01/t..._president.html
it's the last one.)
Jan 23 2009, 12:07 AM
Well since Bush only furthered the U.S into debt, I'd imagine it might be a bill.
Jan 23 2009, 12:50 AM
Hope it's an apology...
Jan 23 2009, 02:59 AM
Rubber dog doo.

A picture of his ass with "Sucker!" written at the bottom.
Jan 23 2009, 08:36 AM
Yeah, with a sound recording chip of him going heh heh heh.
Surely it's the access codes for area 53 (51 & 53 are soo passe), or the ceasefire agreement with the monkey overlords staving world apocolypse, or yesterdays lunch menu for a giggle... erm... or just a good luck note.
That satellite ipc spanning the crowd is amazing, very odd to see the groupings crowd control made, I think they missed a trick there in not making a rude image for google specifically for that pic but the volume of people is amazing, still can't get over that. (And what is it with pic 17 of the crowd, did some entrepreneurial type set up a red hat stand. Out of all the colours a hat could be there seems to be an over-prevalence of red ones... which is odd as democrats in the states tend to be blue...)

I suspect it's the outcome of a bet. George bet Barack that he couldn't get in the Whitehouse. He lost, and so the folder contains Barack's winnings.

If he leavs it a week that dollar will be worth even more in real money
Jan 23 2009, 01:32 PM
Maybe there's a note with the dollar saying 'Good luck paying back that debt, I had fun spending it all on missiles. Here's a little something to get you started, lots of love, George XXOO', written in crayon with spelling that makes LOLcats look fluent.
Perhaps it's a to do list:
1. Catch Osama
2. Make Iraq a democratic and peaceful nation
3. Clear up the mess from that hurricane in that southern place, you know, the one that got all wet
4. Buy cookies.

Maybe it's the executive pr0n collection?

I think that might be a trick of the eye. The red stands out much more than the blue, but if you take another look there's a pretty equal number of blue hats. Just goes to show, red and blue, the states are very divided!

Whatever it was, apparently it was only worth 10 minutes of his time on Wednesday.
According to his press secretary, before setting off for the service, Mr Obama spent 10 minutes in the Oval Office, reading the note left for him by his predecessor, George W Bush.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7834460.stm
Jan 24 2009, 05:45 PM
10 minutes? In that case it must be a complete documentation of Bush's successes over his two terms and it took nine minutes to decipher Bush's scrawl.
Jan 24 2009, 06:39 PM
The aforementioned crayon and LOLcat-calibre spelling and grammar may have come into play there...
Jan 24 2009, 08:15 PM
nah man, Obama would totally be down with the intertubes. I bet he said "lol" after terrorist fist-punching his wife.
Jan 26 2009, 08:55 AM
Maybe it was a secret note about media and savvy manipulation.
I've been watching the Colbert Report (on FXUK) and they keep on covering and running with the idea that Fox news are really pushing - what with the mess up at the oath (the recitation not being the accepted wording due to the Justices error) and the fact that he didn't use a bible in the re-swear he organised, it may not count and Obama may not be Prez...
...Colbert also goes on to say that the constitution states that whoever is on the telly at noon is the official prez and as this was Yo-Yo Ma America now actually has it's first Asian president...
Maybe it's just directions to the safe/bolt hole.
Jan 26 2009, 01:31 PM
Maybe it's a note saying "Don't press the big red button. They disconnected it after the fifth time I tried to nuke Los Angeles. Damn those commie liberal nazi actors!"
Jan 27 2009, 01:10 PM
Hmmm yeah, maybe it's the restaurant kiddies map... er... secret coding test to find the big red button that GB couldn't quite finish left for Obama to 'try'.

It's a connect the dot puzzle that makes a cowboy hat and some brush.
Jan 28 2009, 01:33 PM
If it were a dot-to-dot puzzle, I suspect it would already have been started, but stopped at number 20 (he ran out of toes).
Jan 29 2009, 08:48 AM
Well maybe 21...
Jan 29 2009, 01:17 PM
I recon it was a nice bag of jelly babies as a welcome gift but it accidently got opened and some of the head bitten off.
Jan 30 2009, 12:44 AM
Yo Yo MA! He'll make an excellent president!
Maybe it was a a list of countries that still like the U.S. I mean I really don't see our strategy..Hey lets bomb a country! And then after send in supplies and troops to help them out!
Jan 30 2009, 08:26 AM
He surely wouldn't need a full A4 page for that list would he ;o)
Jan 30 2009, 02:39 PM
A DVD, of the kennedy assasination... from a strange new angle... just to let him know who is really in charge.
Jan 30 2009, 03:36 PM
Heheh. Don't need the sig to help me spot the Bill Hicks fan in our midst...
Feb 26 2009, 12:25 PM
So, March 4th equals day 44... will we find out? Was it in fact a countdown envelope system with 43 consecutive countdown envelopes inside like a Russion doll?
