“I was called to the White House to receive a special award because I knew the most historical things about George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, George H.W. Bush and Donald Trump. I received a $100,000,000 award. I bought a mansion, a farm, pigs, cows and sheep. And I also bought ... ‘Nora ... Nora, time to wake up.’ Aww, man, it was just a dream. What happened to my $100,000,000? I think I’m going to faint.”

“I was called to the White House to receive a special award because I saved one kitten, two birds, three dogs, four tiny children and five lizards. I also helped seven old ladies cross the street. Wow, thinking about it, I really am a super hero.”

“I was called to the White House to receive a special award because I saved Barack Obama’s life when he was skydiving. I noticed his parachute was not going to work because it had a lock on it. I quickly switched the parachutes out. I told Mr. Obama not to worry and it was safe to pull the cord. He got a bit closer to the ground before pulling the cord. When he landed Mr. Obama called the White House and said that I saved his life.”
