NAIROBI (The Borowitz Report) - President Barack Obama celebrated turning 49 years of age today amid a growing controversy from members of the so-called "Birther" movement who claim that today is not actually his birthday.

"Mr. Obama wants us to believe that today is his birthday, but since he won't provide his birth certificate, we're not going to take his word for it," said Orly Taitz, a leading Birther.

Speaking at a press conference in Nairobi, Kenya, Ms. Taitz said that she had traveled "to the land of the President's birth" to find his original birth certificate, but to no avail.

"Unfortunately, the tribal shaman in the President's village didn't keep very good records," she said. "It's probably hidden away in a mud hut somewhere." More
