A figure bearing the likeness of President Barack Obama has been removed from a carnival game on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights, N.J.

It's a game in which contestants must throw a ball at a figure to win a prize.

Among the other targets are an obvious likenesses of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.

The manager of the attraction had previously told Action News he has no intention to take the Obama figure down and that it's all in good fun.

However, in a phone call made Tuesday afternoon, Action News was told by a worker at the shop that the Obama figure was removed.

This latest game involving the president is grabbing headlines just days after a carnival game in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley made the news.

However, Irvin Good Jr. pulled the target-shooting game after receiving a complaint from a patron attending a fair in Roseto, about 65 miles north of Philadelphia.
