Napoli gets in on the White House's joke

President Obama might have pronounced it "na-PO-li" when the Red Sox visited the White House on Tuesday, but that didn't stop him from appointing Boston's first baseman to the totally real President's Council on Beards. Napoli's new title? The Siesta.

Per Erin Lindsay at the official White House website:

Finding inspiration from today's visit by the renowned beard enthusiasts from the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, the President has pulled together an experienced, enthusiastic, and hairy team of council members to advise him on issues related to beard growth, health, and styles.

Other appointees include First Canine Bo "The Mutt-on Chop" Obama and Zack "Face- O' Ferns" Galifinakis, among others.
