barack obamaDid you know that Barack Obama can bench press 200 pounds? How about that as a teenager he used cocaine and marijuana?

These and 48 other interesting facts about our president elect can be found in this article by the Telegraph out of the UK.

Here are my top 10 favorites:

1. He was known as “O’Bomber” at high school for his skill at basketball (Not such a good one for our Commander in Chief!)

2. He has read every Harry Potter book

3. He worked in a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop as a teenager and now can’t stand ice cream

4. He promised Michelle he would quit smoking before running for president – he didn’t (not good, but it makes him human!)

5. He visited Wokingham, Berks, in 1996 for the stag party of his half-sister’s fiancé, but left when a stripper arrived (Was he already thinking of running for president then?)

6. He repaid his student loan only four years ago after signing his book deal

7. He owns four identical pairs of black size 11 shoes

8. He has his hair cut once a week by his Chicago barber, Zariff, who charges $21 (EVERY week?!)

9. He plans to install a basketball court in the White House grounds (I can’t believe no one has done that before…)

10. He uses an Apple Mac laptop (Could have guessed that!)
