President Barack Obama has set the standard for who gets the legendary fist-bump: you have to be a kid dressed as a superhero.

If you're wondering why years of hard work in your field haven't gotten you the attention you think you deserve, ask yourself this: have you ever dressed as a superhero and gone to the White House?

If you answered no, you're not trying hard enough. The President doesn't fist bump some random Pulitzer Prize winner or scientists who cure diseases. Have those people ever saved the entire world from aliens? Nope. So they should move aside.

I am going to the White House this weekend dressed as Iron Man. I'm going to drop from a hot air balloon and break through a window, and if that doesn't get me a group hug from the Secret Service again, I don't know what will.
