Comment of the Day: Questionable White House Artifacts

This one is in two parts. When shown the rad photo of Obama caught in spiderman's web, BSartist wondered what the hell was the large statue (?) next to the credenza (yes, credenza). Queen_of_Bitternia gave an inspired answer:

John Boehner's petrified tears?

Yes! And actually, all of the responses are pretty great, so get up in it.
