Just days away from the presidential election, new reports claim toilet paper bearing the image of President Barack Obama has surfaced at a Florida fire station.
Details of the anti-Obama gag hit the Internet entering the weekend.
City officials are investigating after someone at a South Florida fire station refused to hide his views about the President of the United States. According to a Pompano Beach spokesperson, a firefighter at the station off Sample Road and Northeast 16th Street was told to remove some anti-Barack Obama bumper stickers from his locker because of a complaint. The firefighter then removed the stickers. (WSVN-TV)
The toilet paper reportedly turned out to be retaliation for having anti-Obama stickers taken down.
“If you have an opinion, you’re certainly entitled to it. Everyone has their opinion. Put it on your own personal vehicle or your own personal things,” a city spokeswoman told WSVN. “But you don’t display it on city property, on city grounds that maybe someone else doesn’t agree with, that’s politically motivated, and it’s inappropriate.” (Statement)

We can’t tell you if Chief Keef likes it, but life is full of little mysteries so get used to it.
