PRESIDENT Barack Obama is to visit Beanotown.
He is appearing as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of Dennis the Menace next month when everybody’s favourite schoolboy finally qualifies for a bus pass.
Dennis and his Abyssinian wire-haired tripehound Gnasher will be meeting, greeting and saving the day when it comes to feeding the most powerful leader in the Western world.
Obama’s presidency has hit rough waters so he should welcome the decision of Beano editor Michael Stirling to feature him in the well loved British comic. You never know, it might boost his popularity.
After all, when Dandy and Beano lampooned Hitler and his Nazi gang mercilessly in the Second World War, even mein Fuhrer took notice.
Had the planned Nazi invasion of Britain succeeded in 1940, editors on a Gestapo hit list included those of The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Beano and The Dandy.
If the President is really feeling the pressure at home, he might want to consider taking a holiday home in Comic Land.
Desperate Dan could supply security and he might get a few tips from Roger the Dodger on how to stay in office for a second term.
He could also try being a teacher with the Bash Street Kids. That should sharpen up his leadership skills.
