Odd Image Of The Day

Some images instantly give you that feeling of vertigo. That wobbly-legged uncertainty thanks to a total lack of understanding as to what is going on.

Like this offering from the White House's Flickr feed that shows the First Lady watching a flying man with a red balloon for a body.

Further investigative journalism reveals that this is, in fact, Guinness Book of World Records holder John Cassidy performing a balloon act in the Diplomatic Reception Room. Cassidy performed for kids on the South Lawn of the White House before the First Lady launched a challenge to break the Guinness World Records title for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.
