Sky News scoops the world with Obama-Castro same sex marriage date set

By Axegrinder

Axegrinder understands why Michelle Obama looked so annoyed while at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service yesterday.

A photograph of the First Lady’s death stare went viral on the internet after her dearly beloved took a selfie of himself, David Cameron and the Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

The political trio have been accused of not showing the appropriate respect to the occasion gurning into a cameraphone. 

But the most startling image was earlier in the day when Barack Obama shook hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro. That rapprochement was enough to cause convulsions within certain members of the Tea Party movement in the United States, many of whom believe Obama is a communist.

God only knows what they are going to make of the exclusive by Sky News released yesterday about the pair’s imminent same-sex marriage?
