Obtuse Obama...

"It took a while to prepare the paperwork for Obama's move. Guarantees were required that Obama would bring no pests, that Obama has no tapeworms etc." Hoho...this must be the ovine Obama...well, caprine actually [NYP]. This opening quote is from Dmitry Mezentsev who is Park Director at Primorsky Safari Park in Shkotovo Russia; they have recently received the new goat and named him Obama [NBC]. Apparently Russians use the term 'goat' as an insult to refer to someone who is obtuse or stubborn and the New York Post feels the name distasteful; they may have a point but I think I see where the zoo is coming from; Barack would seem more appropriate. Hat-tip: Weasel Zippers.
