So I was over at Inamorata’s house yesterday when her dad was talking about Obama, and we talked about how he clinched the democratic vote.
Her Dad: Did you know one of his brothers (xiong di) is a terrorist? Was just exposed on the news few days ago.
Me: *feeling totally shocked but doing a swell job of hiding them in* Wah really? I didn’t read about it. Is it his real brother?
Her Dad: Yes I think so.
Me: *still feeling super duper skeptical, but don’t feel it’s right to doubt so much. Hesitates to reply*
Her Dad: That’s why I wonder what will happen if he becomes President.
[Conversation ends because we were about to do something else.]
. . .
Later on, Inamorata and I were watching tv.
Me: Eh you know hor, your dad said Obama has a sibling who is a terrorist..
Inamorata: Huh? *totally bewildered*
Me: (waits for response)
Inamorata: My dad said my mother has a sibling who is a terrorist?
Me: -_- Obama, not your mother lah!
Inamorata: *bursts out laughing*
Just then Obama appears on tv, and subsequently a lady appears.
Me: You know who that woman is right?
Inamorata: Yah lah. William Oprah right?
Me: *laughs hysterically*
Inamorata: Huh wrong meh?
Inamorata: I remember there’s a W somewhere…
Me: -_- Yes. Oprah W….
Inamorata: Oprah Winfrey?
Me: You’re lucky you’re cute.
Inamorata later said that her Dad could have been cracking a joke about the terrorist. You know. Obama. Osama. I said I really didn’t think so. He sounded dead serious. She said it could be.
For the record, Obama has eight half-siblings — seven of them living — by four other marriages or relationships of his parents. Read more about it http://www.suntimes.com/news/politics/obama/familytree/545462,BSX-News-wotrees09.stng
And none of them were/ are terrorists.
