He’s not really known for his off-the-cuff comedy chops, but President Barack Obama definitely landed a few zingers during his interview on “Between Two Ferns.”

Host Zach Galifianakis began, “Sorry I had to cancel a few times… my mouse pad broke last week and I had to get my great aunt some diabetes shoes and….”

Obama fired back, “You know what, Zach? It’s no problem. I have to say, when I heard that, like, people actually watch this show I was actually pretty surprised.”

Continuing on, the “Due Date” actor declared, “In 2013 you pardoned the turkey. What do you have planned for 2014?” “We’ll probably pardon another turkey,” replied Obama. “We do that every Thanksgiving. Was that depressing to you? Seeing one turkey kind of taken out of circulation? A turkey you couldn’t eat?”

Undaunted, Zach asked,“So how does this work? Do you send Ambassador Rodman to North Korea on your behalf? I read somewhere that you’d be sending Hulk Hogan to Syria, or is that more of a job for Tonya Harding?”

And when asked if he was bummed that this was his last term in the Oval Office, the Commander-in-Chief explained, “If I ran a third time it would be sort of like doing a third ‘Hangover’ movie. It didn’t really work out very well, did it?”
