President to Appear on Mythbusters

Like you, my first assumption was that Obama would be busting the myth about how gay people can’t serve in the military on account of their debilitating cooties. Or, you know, the one about how he was born in Kenya. Or the one about him being a Muslim. Or a socialist. Or a fascist. Well, according to the New York Times, it’s something completely different:

In an episode of “Mythbusters” on the Discovery Channel to be shown on Dec. 8, President Obama will help determine whether the Greek scientist Archimedes really set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun.

It’s unclear in what capacity the president will be “helping,” but my guess is that he’ll be on hand to smack Tory Belleci whenever he opens his damn mouth.

“But Mr. President, I have to say something vapid and inarticulate about the experiment.”

This myth, again? What is this, the fourth time?
