|New NASA chief |
Ali Baba Kaboom
WASHINGTON, D.C. | By Robert Feeley - NASA Administrator Charles Bolden told Al Jazeera in a recent interview that his main goal will be to "reach out to the Muslim world and make them feel good about their contributions to math, science and engineering." President Obama affirmed that ambition this morning when he introduced Ali Baba al Kaboom as his new Czar of NASA at a White House press conference.
The president recited a list of Muslim innovations including the flying carpet, camel pizza, and execution by boiling oil. Obama said that NASA will accomplish his goal of landing a man on the sun no later than 2012 by means of Baba's aggressive management style, which he described as "cut-throat - literally."
When SPN reporter Erica Bazoombas posed a question regarding the hazardous nature of traveling to the sun, Obama explained that they would go at night, thus minimizing the lethally hot temperatures. "What do you think I am, some kind of an idiot?" said Obama, grinning. Miss Bazoombas was then put to death by boiling in oil in the Rose Garden.
