The Rosenmontag (Rose Monday) parade in Germany

 
 
These floats were part of the annual Carnival Parade in Germany watched by an estimated three million people in few German cities including Rhineland in Cologne, Bonn, Dusseldorf, Aachen, and Mainz. It was held on 24th February yearly.
It was a lot of fun as they always poked fun and took a swipe at US politicians. The Clintons were favourite characters; and Obama could not be excluded.
                                                                                                                                 
 
 
Obama and Hu Jintao (Retired Chinese Communist Party Chief)
 as inseparable buddies.
Obama the Saviour.
Oh it hurts! Wait till my husband Bill heard of this!
Watch where you place your hands on, Bill!
You can have your hands full,
but the consequence could be disastrous.
Now Obama the Saint goes flying with the 'Halo' on his head.
But someone is pulling him that he can't fly solo.
 

Many thanks to Ron Lim for sharing.
