    While President Bush deals with the economy, the latest developments in Israel, and wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, President-elect Obama ponders which flavor of shaved ice to buy.

    Upon selecting a tropical flavored shaved ice treat, President-elect Barak Obama relishes in the last remaining days of carefree, effortless decision making.

    Obama: Hi, I'd like two scoops of "Instant Economic Solution" with some "Fix the Environment" sprinkled on top and a drizzle of "How To Get Our Troops Out of the Middle East", all in the "Erase Bush's Mess" cone... and could you super-size that, please?
