It's too cute

Monkey Business


Counting the minutes till some jerk makes a "Macaca" joke...??


BBC story:
Hindu Monkey God for Obama

A group of Indians are planning to present a statue of the revered Indian monkey God, Hanuman, to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The group decided to order the idol after they read a magazine report saying that Mr Obama carried a good luck 'monkey king' charm.

They say that a Barack Obama victory would be good for India.
...

Mr Bhama says he is an ardent supporter of Mr Obama - even his email identification is bhamaforobama.

"Obama stands for change. We are hoping that he will bring about change so that oil and food prices come down," he said.

Is it a coincidence that OBAMA sounds almost like BHAMA with the big 'O' of power!

Wise choice by Obama. After all this is what golden idols of Hanuman can do to white men.

A "monkey king" charm?!

How appropriate...

@Gaurav: darn, I can't see this video today.
@John: Monkey king appropriate for Obama? why?

John said...

Let's say that its appropriateness has nothing to do with Indian mythology...

John said...

BTW. what kind of Macaca joke did you have in mind?

And they forgot the Staffer who reassured a Canadian representative about Obama's positions on NAFTA being just for the elections, but that nothing will change if he's elected.

You know it's all just monkeying (imitating) don't you? Some very good specialists in psychology and marketing trained him well - a trained monkey.

Ask your self praised "feelings", and tell me that he is not a complete fake, just cynically playing a role to get the position.

Look at the guy, look at him - FAKE - completely. Did you notice that his eyes always run away from direct contact?

On the other hand, he looks happy that he made monkeys of so many people.

John, you probably have a case of mistaken identity. The real fake, the monkey, is Jindal, not Obama.

Real, honest CHANGE will meet with resistance.
