an obama surprise fact

Skimming all the press coverage about Tuesday's inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States, this little tidbit about Obama as a young man surprised me the most:

"he tried to curse like the late comedian Richard Pryor"

I don't know why, but that cracks me up! Obama's public face is so cool (in the "calm" sense) that it is difficult to imagine him dropping f-bombs and the rest like Richard Pryor.

But it does at least show very good taste in choosing a comedian to emulate.
