(CNN) -- Politics is serious business -- but not all of the time. From the halls of Congress to the campaign trail, there's always something that gets a laugh. Here are some of the things you might have missed:
Obama busts a move
President Obama added his name to the list of dancing presidents (remember this?) over the weekend when he and the first lady showed off a few moves at a Diwali celebration in India. A for effort, C for technique.
Election spending: $50 million on booze and bites
Win or lose, a candidate has to eat -- and someone has to pay for it. The Washington Post reports political hopefuls spent billions this election season, including at least $50 million on catering and liquor, more than $3 million at country clubs and golf courses, and $500,000 on pizza, coffee and doughnuts.
Obama gets folksy
Perhaps it is part of his populist pitch and/or the makings of a new drinking game. Either way, Obama's been channeling Porky Pig with his new favorite word: folks.
Politico reports that the commander in chief used the word 22 times during Sunday's "60 Minutes" interview.
See Scott run
... for president? That's the advice for Sen. Scott Brown from the Boston Herald's Joe Battenfeld.
"Whoever you run against, Scott, your chances of winning in 2012 are 50-50 at best. If you lose, you will be known as a flash in the pan.
"But there is another path. And it leads outside Massachusetts," Battenfeld writes.
And if Brown is worried about potential White House contender Sarah Palin, Battenfeld offers up one reason why the GOP senator from Massachusetts would have the edge:
"Your daughter is a talented singer and 'American Idol' finalist. Palin's daughter is on 'Dancing With the Stars.' "
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist might have a Christmas present in store for the late Jim Morrison.
The Hill reports the outgoing governor is considering a posthumous pardon for the lead singer of the Doors for indecent exposure charges stemming from a 1969 concert in Miami.
The Don Draper of D.C.?
The New York Daily News says House Minority Leader John Boehner's post-election performance is one even "Mad Men's" Don Draper would appreciate.
"It was a scene straight out of 'Mad Men'' -- chain-smoking Don Draper denouncing 'addictive' cigarettes after his ad agency lost a big tobacco account. Except it was Rep. John Boehner -- speaker of the House-in-waiting -- on Election Night, enthusiastically ripping into the city that made him what he is," the article says.
Keith Olbermann's suspension from MSNBC amounts to what most would call a long weekend. The prime-time host was suspended Friday after a news report by Politico revealed he had donated to three Democrats seeking federal office.
But the punishment was short-lived. MSNBC President Phil Griffin announced Olbermann will be back on the air Tuesday.
Aliens descend near Washington
Residents in Centreville, Virginia, spotted a blue UFO moving through the sky, Fox 5 reports.
"It's weird. You only see this type of stuff in movies. Just as long as we're here, I'm sure there are other things somewhere," Bryan Fains, who caught the object on video, told the TV station.
In other news, lawmakers headed back to Washington this weekend.
