(Newser) – In case you haven’t heard, Barack Obama wants to bring change to America. Culture11 offers a list of what that change might mean:

  • When daughters ask for a puppy, Daddy shouts: "Yes we can!"
  • French win fries debate in White House cafeteria. Arugula now known as “Hope salad.”
  • Secret Service stops worrying about first daughters falling down drunk.

  • President Obama wastes “first 100 days” after launching www.theoval.blogspot.com.
  • "Out of sympathy for Jon Stewart, Daily Show cameras allowed to follow Joe Biden 24/7."
  • Water-boarding table “removed from VP residence.”
  • Joe the Plumber now handles any problems with the White House pipes.
  • Stimulus checks sent out “through Oprah to her studio audiences.”
  • On April Fool's Day, White House operator redirects all 3am calls to Hillary's house.
