Barack Obama Revels In His College Days With Jimmy Fallon On Late Night!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaJimmy Fallon

It's entirely debatable whether or not Barack Obama is a one of the best presidents ever, but he's most definitely one of the coolest!

The leader of our country stopped by NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night and talked about a variety of topics. However, since the episode was being filmed at the University of North Carolina, education was a MAJOR talking point.

Not only did Fallon surprise the Prez with a picture from his college days, in which he's rockin' a very stylish afro, but the two talked (above) about the value of higher education.

Unfortunately, the cost of college outweighs the value for some people and to top it off, congress is considering doubling the interest rates of student loans.

Then there is the most recent White House scandal involving the Secret Service, so Fallon obvi asked about it and we are proud to say that Obama handled the controversial subject with class. Watch him discuss the scandal and answer Twitter questions from U.S. citizens … AFTER THE JUMP!

Parent Selling Body Parts On Craigslist To Pay For Child's Education

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSad SadBody

Parent sells body parts on Craigslist

This is so sad.

A Boston parent is offering to sell his or her body parts on Craigslist to pay for their child's student loans which total $200,000.

The desperate post was titled "Do You Need A Live Cadaver? Take My Body" in the "jobs wanted" section of Boston Craigslist last week and read:

"If you eliminate my children's student loans, I will give you my life!"

What could be a sick joke, gets sickly serious as it continues:

"Take my blood, take my plasma. Drill into my brain, my leg, my arm. Tap my heart, my liver, my kidney. I am very very serious."

Gross.

While this parent's devotion and self-sacrifice for its child's future is commendable, it is mostly unnecessary and disturbing.

We think their child would rather have to pay student loans then have their parent pay the ultimate price of losing their life.

We sincerely hope NOBODY actually takes this offer seriously and that this desperate parent can find another means of securing funds to pay off their child's excessive college debt.
