Wax Obama

Barack Obama's wax replica took office in several European capitals this week.

In Amsterdam, George W. Bush was booted to the sidewalk with his baggage (where he remained for about 90 minutes) as a beaming Obama figure was put on display in the window of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.

Standing in Berlin between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy at Madame Tussauds' newest museum, the waxy President Obama was smiling broadly with his arms crossed across his chest.

In London, Obama was installed Thursday amid a mock-up of the White House Oval office.

The first wax Obama was unveiled in February 2008 in Washington, D.C. More figures will be unveiled in New York and Las Vegas, while those in Hong Kong and Shanghai appeared on Obama's actual Inauguration Day, January 20.

The figures are created using professional sculptors and more than 300 detailed measurements, at a cost of roughly $260,000 each.

        Maybe this is just me but I've been to McDonald's several times and I've NEVER seen a tall employee or even an average-sized employee. Every time I went to McDonald's, all of the employees (both male and female) were short. Does McDonald's have a preference for short people or is this just my experience?  :hug
