"Obama slipped here"?

Not on the pavement, but, yes I made a litte joke because someone had not secured the poster in the window properly. A few doors away there were a couple sun-faded Hillary posters in the windows of a house during the primary campaign so I titled that picture 'Hillary is fading at Merton College'. This was another little joke. A couple miles away in Headington there is another Obama supporter who fastened their poster properly.

:) I was also referring to an American phenomenon which others may not know about, i.e. "George Washington Slept Here". It is common to see these signs posted about the first US President. Being in an ideal location to do so, I created an "Obama Slept Here" tag for some of my photos. For further reading: http://www.iht.com/articles/1996/02/23/topics.t_36.php
