President Obama has announced his resignation as President of the United States.
“This job was far more difficult than I could’ve imagined,” he said. “I didn’t sign up for a job where I’m constantly inundated with phone calls, meetings and having to deal with the likes of Iran.
Reports say Obama was also being pressured by his top advisors to surrender his Blackberry, for security reasons.
Effective immediately, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 45th president. He is rumored to be considering Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for vice president.

In an exclusive marketing agreement, KISS bassist Gene Simmons has announced a five-year agreement to have the Nike swoosh logo on the sides of his dragon boots.
Simmons, co-founder of KISS, wears the dragon boots as part of his demon persona.
“I feel this is an excellent business partnership,” Simmons said in a statement. “I’d like to encourage our fans to ‘Just do it’ and attend our concerts and buy our merchandise.”
Simmons, a notorious non-drinker who did controversial ads for Miller Lite a few years ago, shrugged off accusations of the over-commercialization of KISS. “It’s just business,” he said. “Besides, I have guitar picks that are older than some of these critics of mine.”
