NEW YORK CITY, NY - Stop by Hammacher Schlemmer on E. 57th and discover what new item has media members abuzz: the Obama Buttocks Pillow. Taken from an artist's design, the "O-Butts," as they're called, conform precisely to the shape of President Barack Obama's ass. According to store manager Martin Terpaine, they can't keep them in stock. "Everybody wants one, but they are especially popular with the news media. Katie Couric buys them by the gross." O-Butts are bifurcated and come in goose down, medium density pillows, and King pillows with moisturizing aloe. Said Terpaine, "Charles Gibson wanted one with human hair. But we said 'no.' That would be sick."
