I didn’t watch the White House Correspondents Dinner last night and enjoyed every minute of it. This morning though I saw the opening bit, which was a recorded video featuring Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Nancy Pelosi, who played the part of Harry Reid (surprising Reid didn’t get a writing credit on the “joke” below).

The Pelosi scene was awkward from the start, with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Joe Biden walking in on Nancy while she was getting her weekly forearm Botox injections:

Here’s the “joke” Pelosi delivered as she was supposedly getting a tattoo which read “Gavel Time!”

“Do you know the difference between a tattoo and the Koch brothers? They’re both painful, but you can get rid of a tattoo.”

Ouch. That really needed this sound effect:

Here’s the full video that kicked off the WHCD. Pelosi’s scene starts at about the 5:00 mark, so put on a helmet and prepare for an exploding joke bomb… or two… or three:

Trivia: That’s the same tattoo artist who once ran out of ink drawing Harry Reid’s “Koch brothers Koch brothers KOCH BROTHERS KOCH BROTHERS” tramp stamp.

Exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Pelosi’s prep for the scene:

There’s some good mockery at MOTUS, including a rundown of what People Magazine thought were the funniest jokes (there must have been a nitrous oxide leak at People HQ).
