“Hey dude! Get a load of this!”
“President Obama’s coming back to Hawai‘i! And he’s bringing a pack of his friends!”
“I should think he’s got friends, the way he’s been throwing money around …”
“Not those friends. These are real economic summit-type friends. From 21 countries, no less. Says he wants to show that Hawai‘i is a place to do business. And …”
“He gonna muzzle all the dudes who’ve gone bust over crippling taxes and strangling regulations before they get here?”
” … he says he’s looking forward to seeing them all in flowered shirts and …”
“Flowered shirts, dude? He said flowered shirts? Not aloha shirts? In the Aloha State? He tryin’ not to mention aloha ’cause he knows damned well there ain’t any around here any more? And what about the chicks, dude?”
“Grass skirts, dude.”
“Grass skirts?!? He said he wanted to see these high-powered executive-type chicks in grass skirts?? That’s going to go over well. Not. When are we supposed to receive this beneficence, huh?”
“Waitaminute, let me check … says here, sometime in 2011.”
“Right. Two years from now. Wonderful. Way the economy’s going, Obama’s going to be entertaining them business people in grass shacks, on account of because there won’t be anything else open by then. I can hardly wait, dude.”
