    President Obama walks into the Bank of America to cash a check.

    As he approaches the cashier he says, "Good morning, Ma'am, could you

    please cash this check for me?"

    Cashier: "It would be my pleasure, sir. Could you please show me your ID?"

    Obama: "Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there

    was any need to. I am President Barack Obama, the President of the

    United States of AMERICA!!!!"

    Cashier: "Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and

    monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and

    requirements of the Dodd/Frank legislation, etc., I must insist on

    seeing ID."

    Obama: "Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell

    you. Everybody knows who I am."

    Cashier: "I am sorry, Mr. President, but these are the bank rules, and

    I must follow them."

    Obama: "I am urging you, please, to cash this check."

    Cashier: "Look, Mr. President, here is an example of what we can do.

    One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he

    was Tiger Woods, he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot

    across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger

    Woods and cashed his check.

    "Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his

    tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot where the tennis ball

    landed in my cup. With that shot we cashed his check.

    "So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only

    you, as the President of the United States?"

    Obama stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says,

    "Honestly, my mind is a total blank...there is nothing that comes

    to my mind. I can't think of a single thing. I have absolutely no

    idea what to do, and I don't have a clue."

    Cashier: "Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?"
