Kenyan Babies Named After Obama & Romney
20-year-old Kenyan mother, Millicent Owuor, just celebrated the joyous experience of motherhood by naming her two twins by what cultural milestone has resonated with her most–the 2012 Presidential race.
One might assume she named her kids America, or Democracy, or Blue State, but no, Owuour gave her children a Jacob and Esau complex for the rest of their lives by naming them Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Guess who is who.
The hospital where little Mitty and Bammy were born is near the residence of President Barack Obama’s 90-year-old stepgrandmother and close to where his father was born reports Yahoo!.
Suffice to say, Kenyans love Obama and one Kenyan, Joseph Onyango, said that “If Obama did not win, I believe most projects here would stall.”
That’s a lot of pressure on those two babies, but if you want to name your children JACK and FM, we give you our blessing. Just know that they will be stubborn and take absolutely no requests.
