Illustration for article titled Adorable Fence Baby Causes White House Lockdown

A toddler who wrangled his way through a fence at the White House caused a brief lock down on Thursday.

Around 8 p.m. on Thursday night, "Fence Baby" (as USA Today refers to him) made his adorable break-in attempt. Reporters waiting for President Obama's statement on Iraq saw security officers racing across the North Lawn, in pursuit of fence baby. Not much is known about his motivations, but is possible that fence baby spotted Bo and/or Sunny and wanted to touch their fuzzy hair and play with them.


Fence Baby (whose name was not released, but should definitely legally change it to "Fence Baby" as soon as he's old enough to do so) and his parents were not detained by officials. BECAUSE OBAMA IS NOT TOUGH ON CRIME #BENGHAZI OBAMACARE! The Secret Service had a bit of fun with the story, too. "We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him," said Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan. "But in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on way with his parents."

Way to go, Fence Baby. Don't ever let anything stop you. Don't see fences and barriers—just see your dreams and go for it.
