"Oba-Mao" T-Shirts to Greet President Obama on His Trip to Beijing
Posted by Janet Shan | 5:11 PM |


It can't possibly help the Democrats or White House that the Chinese will welcome President Barack Obama on his trip to Beijing with "Oba Mao" T-shirts and a statue of him that bursts into flames. This will be fodder for the right wingers -- Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, to name a few. He is widely admired for his charisma and will, undoubtedly, be a source of profit for some Chinese.

According to media reports, one Beijing shop owner wanted to see what Obama could do for sales. Liu Mingjie created "Oba Mao" T-shirts, with the president wearing the uniform of the Red Guards, who caused chaos during the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s. "It's just kind of avant garde," Liu said of the images, saying they were no longer political, just fashion.

He sold hundreds of the shirts, to both foreigners and Chinese, until authorities told shops selling the shirts to stop. "They're not allowed to sell these things because there are images of Obama wearing the uniform of the Red Army," a woman answering the phone at the Dongcheng district Administration for Commerce and Industry said Thursday.

The Red Army would probably have been the only Army Obambi would have gladly served in.

Everytime I heard Surfing Bird I would go on a kick for days, much to the embarrassment of my daughters who had to bear the humiliation of their father breaking into it at any moment. I am talking about anywhere. Their sports practices, games, parent teacher conferences. Three words would trigger it, "Bird, Surf, or word."

Teacher, Coach, Friend' mom, Teacher: "Did you see that bird?"

Me: "That what?"

Teacher, Coach...ect:"That bird."

My daughter: "Oh shit"

Me: "Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow...."

This was of course accompanied with big arm movements and hip twisting.

What was funnier was when they went and told on me to their mother who hated that I did this.

Daughter: Dad sucks! He did that thing again.

Carly: Thing?

Daughter: That thing. You know...

Carly: With the bird?

Daughter: Oh Dammit!

Me: Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow....

I used to love doing that, much to the chagrin of everyone else.
