Happy Terrorist Fist Jab Anniversary Day! On June 3, 2008, the Obamas gave each other a pound as he locked up the nomination, shocking whites everywhere. Now—as Dr. King dreamed—it's accepted. A year of Obama pounds, in photos.

Here are ten photos from the past year, proving that fist jabs have overcome their scary, black-person-centric origins and flowered into a glorious tableau of diversity. Most notably, as you will see, the Obamas have learned to make whites accepting of pounds by employing a clever strategy: giving pounds to white people, which inevitably gives the receiver an irresistible momentary shudder of coolness. (Although black people still enjoy pounds, as well!) Media experts have been unable to determine where the Obamas may have learned the art of the "Fist Bump," though white scholars are determined to track it back to its murky origins. Enjoy.
