No joke! President Barack Obama has proven, once again, that he's got a great sense of humor.

During an appearance on Between Two Ferns, the U.S. commander in chief definitely held his own while being interviewed by host Zach Galifianakis.

For instance, when Galifianakis pointed out that Obama can't run for a third term, the president said, "Actually, I think it's a good idea. If I ran a third time it would be sort of like doing a third Hangover movie. Didn't really work out very well, did it?"

But Galifianakis certainly managed to get in a few zingers of his own, like asking Obama if it's "going to be hard in two years when you're not going to be president and people stop letting you win at basketball."


Funny Or Die

Obama's appearance on Between Two Ferns is another attempt to encourage young people to sign up for health insurance before March 31.

But when the Affordable Care Act was brought up, Galifianakis remarked, "Yeah. I heard about that. That's the thing that doesn't work."

Later, after Obama noted that the act "can't discriminate against you if you have a pre-existing condition anymore," Galifianakis rolled up his sleeve and showed his "spider bites."

"Zach, you need to get that checked right away," Obama said. "You need to get on because that's one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen."

Fortunately for us, this interview was one of the funniest things we've seen.
