Awk: Pres. Obama says Jason Collins Can “Bang With Shaq”

Irresponsible metaphor alert! During a press conference President Barack Obama was asked about newly out of the closet NBA player Jason Collins, only someone must have stolen his teleprompter page with approved similes and metaphors.

Admittedly, Collins’ value as a basketball player can be easily described as “six times you can foul Shaq,” but there are many better metaphorical verbs than “bang.”

Press members in attendance do a poor job of not giggling like 5 year olds.
