The boy and the clock and the White House invite. A Limerick.

This Radio Shack clock questions raise.clock-bomb-640x480

A tool to instruct or amaze?

For with just one more splice

it’s a timing device.

Is that why he gets White House praise?

President Obama sure knows how to pick winners.

A 14 year Muslim boy finds a 30 year old alarm clock from Radio Shack, opens it up and modifies it slightly so it can be used as a timing device for bombs. He shows it to his science teacher who tells him – Good, but don’t show it to anyone. He does carry it in class the rest of the day, and when it beeps (that’s the circuit you splice to the detonator) his English teacher freaks out and calls the police. He refuses to cooperate and gets arrested.

For this he gets invited to the White House?Screen-Shot-2015-09-17-at-9.55.16-AM-e1442501751470

Would President Obama have invited him to the White House had his father been driving a pickup truck with “MOLON LABE” in the back window?

Or, could the immediate involvement of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) have anything to do with it?
