2024 - 2024年



ポニーテール: So this is 2024.
男: Yup. Guess it's an election year now.
ポニーテール: Again? Man, those just keep happening, huh?

ポニーテール: Who's the president these days, anyway? Is it still Obama?
男: What? No? He hasn't been... How do you not...

ポニーテール: Darn, I liked him. Is he running this time?
男: No, he's not allowed to.
ポニーテール: He's not? Why?
男: Constitution.

スマホ画面: Amendment 22
スマホ画面: No person shall be elected to the office of the president more than twice

ポニーテール: What?? C'mon...
ポニーテール: Don't all your cells get replaced every seven years, Ship of Theseus-style? Is he even the same person?
ポニーテール: Maybe "no person shall be elected more than twice" isn't a prohibition, it's more of an observation, like "you can't step in the same river twice.

男: Isn't the cell thing a myth?
男: I think tooth enamel has a turnover half-life of 30+ years. His teeth molecules are probably the same.

ポニーテール: So if Obama just gets false teeth, he can run again! I need to talk to a dentist and a lawyer!
男: The Supreme Court is about to vote 9-0 to block your number.

Alt-text: It wasn't originally constitutionally required, but presidents who served two terms have traditionally followed George Washington's example and gotten false teeth.
