    All seriousness aside, you have to love the dry humour the Secret Service has in this incident; it is almost on par with the British. :D

    Enjoy.

    Considering that the Secret Service is not known for it's uproarious sense of humor...it's a pretty funny line.

    Sweet story, but which White House fence are they talking about? :confused:

    He must have been a very skinny toddler if he got through the perimeter fence.

    I like that the agent cracked a joke. Shows the human side of them.

    Think the toddler was a Democrat or Republican?

    He was there to lobby for more snacks. He heard about the Presidential M&M's.

    My DD11 considers her box of Presidential M&M's as one of her prized possessions.

    Nope. My daughter has a pack of Presidential M & M's that have the signature of Barack Obama on them. She got them after the White House tour several years ago. No, she did not get to meet the POTUS. He wasn't there. By the way, it takes a valid government photo ID to get into the White House if you are an adult.

    Enough with the bickering, the off topic arguing has been removed.
