For Your Most Precious Keepsakes

Awhile ago, I was looking to help heal the political rift between my mother and me by purchasing her a clever Barack Obama t-shirt. Instead, I came across something even better.

Yes. A Barack Obama Secret Muslim Keepsake Box.

4) Another, smaller, Barack Obama Secret Muslim Keepsake Box

Let the eagle soar,
