President Obama Test-Fires a Marshmallow Cannon at the White House Science Fair


“The Secret Service is going to be mad at me about this.” And with due cause, Mr. President, for PopSci is pretty sure projectile weapons are prohibited in the State Dining Room of the White House. Nonetheless, an exception was made yesterday as President Obama hosted the second White House Science Fair, where he surveyed more than 30 student projects, cracked jokes with youngsters and the press, and--most notably--participated in a demo of 14-year-old Joey Hudy’s “Extreme Marshmallow Cannon.” Which is exactly what it sounds like.

The story is too old to be commented.

Funny how something like a science fair "cannon" would make the secret service nervous. I guess a marshmallow traveling at high speeds could be a choking hazard though.

I read elsewhere this boy also has ASD, or Aspergeres disorder. I suppose the boy could have flipped out and used his un-proportionate strength to attack the leader of the free world with his WMD,,,(weapon of Marshmellow destruction!)
