    I have absolutely zero intention of starting a political discussion here (which is against the rules), so if a mod even remotely considers this political please delete it.

    But as a TF fan, I found the use of "Transformer" in this article amusing... taken literally. (You just never know what's going to pop up with Google News Alerts sometimes...)

    Reading this article suddenly made me wonder what Pres. Obama would look like as a TF.

    I better not post what I'm thinking. Might start a political debate! Anyway, that is interesting news.

    I had something clever planned to type here, but it would get the thread locked so I won't. Why is a political thread still going anyway?

    Too bad, because it was funny as all get out.

    While funny...I guess. Just because the word Transformer is used to describe something or someone doesn't mean it has anything to do with our Transformers, so why bring it up in the first place?

    I know, it kinda like a Beavis and Butt-head moment going on here. "Hea Hea, Hey Butt-head, They said Transformer. We like to Transform...our butts."

    wow, because the word transformer automatically links itself to the 'transformers' this board is based on. Maybe we should link all articles that state the word transformers when speaking of power generators too...

    :wtf: 

    And I thought fight threads were 'pointless' lmao
