The H. Word [Barack H. Obama].

While at work today, I was intermittently listening to the "legendary" inauguration ceremony of president Barack Obama. I was streaming it live, while the master of ceremony was naming past presidents, and other "venerable" political figures, present at this historical event.

Surely enough, the M.C. was very careful, and systematic in naming every political figure by their complete name: James Earl Carter... William Jefferson Clinton... Georges Walker Bush... etc.
But when it came to calling for the newly elected president, the dude just went:
Barack H. Obama...

I guess Hussein is very hard for him to pronounce.
Hussein is very heavy for the tongue...

The United States, is apparently ready for a black president, but not yet so for a president with the H. word in his name.

Yeah, I had to chuckle...
How a "Hussein" can actually be a "Christian" is over the head of most Americans!

It may be over your head, not that of most Americans who elected him to office.

Really? Interesting. But then Obama intruced himself with his full name! He said take that!

Let's hope they won't cut his head off because of his middle name ! Especially if he decides to "engage" with Iran and surprise us at the next Achoura there to celebrate his name ...

Ouhahaha Ouhahaha Ouhahaha
