Michael Phelps's mustache, assured by presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama of being named his running mate, threated a walkout at tonight's Democratic National Convention after Joe Biden appeared to replace it on the ticket
Phelps's mustache was preparing its acceptance speech early Saturday morning when news of the looming Obama-Biden pick reached Phelps's mustache's cell phone's inbox.
"This is an outrage," Phelps's mustache said. "I had an assurance from Senator Obama that we would ride the Obama-Phelps's Mustache wave all the way to the White House. I had even picked out new drapes for the Naval Conservatory. But after promising me the spot, Obama picked that jerk Biden from Delaware. Seriously, where is Delaware, anyway?"
Obama's original pick of Phelps's mustache had come under scrutiny by Constitutional scholars in recent days, as it appears that Phelps's mustache must have been at least 35 years old to be eligible for the office. Photo evidence suggests that the mustache missed the Constitutional mark by 34 years and 10 months.
Supporters of Phelps's mustache joined frustrated Hillary Clinton supporters in calling for a roll call vote at the convention. Supporters were seen passing out "Hillary-Mustache" signs on the convention floor.
Obama was unavailable to comment.
