Breaking Records is Easy

Jon Stewart just mentioned on the The Daily Show about how Barack Obama is the first African-American president to hold a press conference to lay out his financial plans, and then added that he would be breaking a lot of records.

The thing is that everything that Obama does breaks a record if you tack on “first African-American president to…” For example, he’s the first African-American president to drive to work, the first African-American president to eat Cheerios, the first African-American president to pee standing up, and so on.

In fact, you can extend this to anyone and anything if you’re specific enough: I am the first me in the world to sleep tonight, ever! Say, that’s not a bad idea. Good night.
