President Obama and the first lady went to a Toys for Tots event to sort toys ... for tots.

At this event, President Obama did a great job playing the roles of leader of the free world, awkward dad, and ... gender equality pioneer?

Here's what happened.

First lady Obama was doing her thing, carrying bags and sorting toys ...

... when President Obama got a little feisty.

Where's he gonna put that basketball?


Then came the best presidential rhetorical question about tools.

And a contemplation of T-ball.

You can almost see a celebration of Title IX in his eyes. ;) What *are* you up to, Mr. President?


However you feel about him, he cares about kids. And that makes me smile.
