Bulgarian Calf Named after Barack Obama

In the long line of ridiculous ways the Obama presidency has been marked comes a calf in the village of Tatarevo located in Haskovo District in Southeast Bulgaria. This calf has been named "Barack Obama," after the new US President, the TV channel bTV reported.

The male calf was born the morning of January 20, the US Presidential Inauguration Day, so its keeper decided to name it after the 44th American President. The keeper has promised that the calf would not be sent to the slaughterhouse for the duration of Obama's current term.

So, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. If you name a calf after an American President, you save him from being hamburger for at least 4 years.

First off we would like to congratulate you on your fine public speaking skills. It looks like those who said the Obama Administration would strike while the iron is hot may have been correct, and the Administration may be doing it in a way that does not require them to even get a vote in Congress.
