Listen, nobody's comparing President Obama to former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash or anything. But, they do have one thing in common: they like to smoke.

President Obama had his annual physical today and for the most part, things are great. After coming back from the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, Obama told reporters that the examination went "really good."

His doctor concurs.

"The President is in excellent health and fit for duty," reads the White House physician's report. "All clinical data indicate that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency."

Hasn't kicked it

But if you read real close you'll see that the president doesn't appear to have kicked the nicotine habit. The First Doc recommends he "continue smoking cessation efforts."

Like not inserting a cigarette into your mouth? That's one way. The report says he's using "nicotine replacement therapy."

For some people said replacement therapy means horking down five gallons of Haagen Daaz. Not for Obama. He weighed in at a cool 179.9 pounds.
