It's nice to know that if Barack Obama doesn't win his re-election campaign this year that he's have another high-profile profession to fall back on: stand-up comedy.

We can tell he'll be good because of this latest speech of his, from the White House Correspondents' Dinner, where he poked fun at everyone from Glee to, um, us here at The Huffington Post.

For those not already in the know about the White House Correspondents' Dinner, it's an annual event in which the Leader Of The Free World can finally let rip and tell the assembled media in front of him what he really thinks - or, at least, what his joke writers would like him to say he thinks.

This year's dinner was hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel - and you can check out the highlights of his own speech below. Just as soon as you've checked out our video gallery of Barack Obama doing really rather wonderful things:
