In Pictures: The 2010 White House Easter Egg Roll

On Monday, the White House held its annual Easter Egg Roll, a tradition dating back to President Rutherford B. Hayes, who believed it was a way to ward off witches and gout.

And Wait, Wait was there!*

*Not actually there.

Ian: Mr.President, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but something tells me the kid in the middle might not be yours.
Eva: Michelle's like, "This year, instead of chocolate eggs, you're all searching for broccoli! Hooray!!"

Mike: Obama points out that, yes, it's in the Constitution the President gets a head start.
Eva: "Listen kid, I speak from experience, you don't wanna be photographed wearing mom jeans."
Peter: "If any of you stop to eat the egg, my wife is going to be mad."

And Mr.Obama shoots some hoops...

Ian: First African-American President: Fine. Passed Health Care Reform: Pretty good. Drove the lane on a first grader in a sundress: HELL YEAH!

Mike: "Okay, when I give the signal, lead the children to the politically correct re-education camps..."
Ian: Obama, no! It's the latest wacky scheme from the ACORN pimp impersonator guy!
Eva: "Thanks, Biden, you're done here. You can go back inside now."
