'Obamarama': Bubble gum
More Obama fun from -- where else? -- Kisumu, Kenya. Blogger Bankelele was in the Luoland capital last month and saw banners advertising a new Obama bubble gum. The slogan? It's a clever one: "Yes we want!!"
The gum comes in at least two flavors, orange and strawberry (below) and is priced to sell at 1 shilling, or a little more than a penny, apiece. However, Bankelele, with the same alertness he uses to take Kenya's business elite to task on his terrific blog, pointed out that the gum wasn't on the shelves at the local Nakumatt superstore.
Remember, folks -- send your unusual Obama images to us via e-mail.
