    The guy on the ladder is obviously holding a loud speaker saying,

    Obama is so sure about the success of health care reform that he's wiling to stand under a ladder to prove it works.

    To decrease the national debt by saving on the price of his garments, Obama shrunk himself. It's a good example for all of us to follow. Cotton farmers however, are outraged.
