Obama-rama

Here are some facts (loosely) connected with the new American president, Barack Obama.

  • While ‘Change You Can Believe In’ was an inspiring slogan, it had coincidentally been used twice before. It had been used before by presidents James Buchanan and Warren G. Harding. When questioned by members of the German media, Obama speechwriters said they were unaware of the previous usages but this did not change Obama’s message.
  • There is a red dwarf star in the Peony nebula called Obama 7-A. It was named this 14 YEARS BEFORE OBAMA WAS BORN!!!
  • The strangely similar Irish surname O’Bama means ‘Son of Bramaugh’.
