We've laughed with and at Dustin Penner plenty of times over the past few years. We couldn't help but laugh at his back injury which occurred when he was reaching for a bite of "delicious pancakes". We laughed with him when he interned for Conan O'Brien during the lockout.
Now we're laughing with Penner as he comments on his visit to the White House while poking fun at the Tim Thomas situation from last year.
After careful consideration I've decided not to visit the White House today for political reasons LOL JK I'm not an idiot!Free trip? I'm in!

Well played, Penner.
A free trip to the White House? Why not? It's a neat opportunity regardless of your political views. Players and coaches might not be satisfied with the man in office, but at the very least most of them, including Penner, recognize a special and rare opportunity.
