On a trip to northern Australia earlier today, President Obama was given free crocodile insurance.
“I was just presented with the most unique gift I have ever received as president — crocodile insurance,” Obama told about 2,000 troops in Darwin. “My wife, Michelle, will be relieved.”
Australia’s north is home to some of largest and most dangerous crocodiles in the world. Fortunately for President Obama, he was unscathed when he left the country earlier today.
In the event of a presidential croc attack, the insurance would have paid A$50,000 to the First Lady.
