Petition: Make President Obama drink his own urine while filming "Running Wild with Bear Grylls" in Alaska
You kind of have to give it to MSNBC.com for publishing this article, if only because it shows the folly that inevitably comes with demeaning the office of the president with cheap pop-culture stunts. In light of President Obama filming a segment for an upcoming episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, some wise guy apparently decided to gin up a petition at the White House's official website calling on the Leader of the Free World to drink his own urine during the episode.
"President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with Bear Grylls during his visit to Alaska, who will give the president a "crash course in survival techniques." If there's one thing we all know about Bear Grylls' techniques, it's that they mostly involve drinking his own urine. And so: We ask that Obama do the right thing and drink his own urine during a taping of "Running Wild with Bear Grylls." For science. The people demand it."
