Presidential Limo Not As Unstoppable as Previously Reported

Barack Obama’s presidential limo was designed to be virtually unstoppable:

The vehicle, referred to by the Secret Service as “the beast,” will reportedly feature heavy armor that is at least 5 inches thick and comes complete with run-flat tires, bulletproof glass and a completely sealed interior to ward off a chemical attack, among many other high-tech security features.

Pretty impressive — but there is one vulnerability that engineers of future presidential limos might want to address: Nothing can stop The Beast… except curbs.

Today in Ireland, Obama’s limo did its best impression of the US economy trying to drive over the stimulus:

The “Moe hits Curly in the head with a ball peen hammer” wacky sound-effect is certainly a bonus.

The delay turned out to be a welcome one, because FLOTUS needed some extra time to fix her hair.

Update: President Obama is leaving Ireland early because of volcanic ash — that is, if Air Force One can make it over that curb to the runway at Dublin airport.
