The Daily Hotness: Obama’s Elf

This poor elf shares the same sentiment we’ve all felt at some point in our lives. I mean, who really wants to be Obama’s Elf? No one, that’s who. Hearing the pain in his voice as he longs to be something else truly tears me up inside. We’ll get you out of there soon enough Obama’s Elf. Until then, you hang in there and sing your damn heart out.

A stunning gameplay video for a canceled Avengers game surfaced, DC Universe Online is going free-to-play, the ESRB makes Skyrim sound even more awesome and lots of other exciting things happened on 9/19/11.
