President Obama will not meet with world leaders as they gather in New York for the United Nations General Assembly. Whether it's because he's too busy campaigning or because he doesn't want to create headlines, opening himself up for attack, the move is being criticized by those on the right and the left.
What Obama's critics fail to note is that, despite being indisposed, he did take time out between television appearances to send quick messages to world leaders. We got our hands on a few of those messages, which we're now sharing with the world…

* Celebrate the Last Supper with Funny or Die.
* The Onion has a pretty good back-up plan for the nation's health care needs.
* A tank made out of books. Great idea to revive the publishing industry!
* Another group of profound questions about the Presidents, from McSweeney's.
* Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is apparently a huge fan of Jim Gaffigan.

Iran's nuclear capabilities? Suck it! Gas nearing $5 a gallon? Uh… duh! The housing crisis? Big whoop! Meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu? Ishkabibble! President Obama has more important things to do. Namely starting Twitter beef with comedian Aziz Ansari…
"I just want to remind him: I've got more Twitter followers than you, man," Obama said at a fundraiser last week in New York City. "I just want to keep him humble and hungry. We all need someone who does that; fortunately, I have Michelle."
OH. SNAP. President Obama has approximately 11 million more followers than Ansari's measly 1.6M. Dayyyyyyyyyyyum! And a DOUBLE SNAP on Michelle! Guess she's never heard of this holiday. Or maybe she has, and it's Matt Drudge that's never heard of it.
Unfortunately, it's hard to be humble when the POTUS singles you out. Ansari responded by tweeting:
President Obama gives me a shoutout, calls me out on lack of Twitter followers. Unreal. Watch: bit.ly/AkMpjp

Now that the President has some experience starting a war, maybe all those Republican hawks will back off on Iran. If only Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had a Twitter account…

Then God said, "Let there be Twitter." But then he was like "oh shit, that's not what I wanted." And thus the news cycle was never the same…
Fathers are a lot like microwaves; if you have one as a child you'll be happy, if you have two then you will never be a viable member of society.
Trying to make this story more hilarious would be like trying to make plastic more awesome. It ain't gonna happen– Stephen, teach us your ways.
This is why they call him Mahmoud 'the jokester' Ahmadinejad. Cause he's always making jokes. Plus it just rolls off the tongue.
The only person to blame here is the guy who accidentally booked Katy Perry for Sesame Street instead of Zooey Deschanel.

Why can't everyone agree on whether or not the recession is over? Isn't it just a straightforward self-evident thing based on not-bullshit?
