Parasite Named After Barack Obama

By Robert Paul Reyes

"As if `Leader of the Free World` and `Nobel laureate` weren`t enough, now President Obama has another feather he can add to his cap.

A newly discovered species of parasite has been named in his honor: Baracktrema obamai.

Thomas R. Platt discovered and named the creature, a flatworm that lives in the lungs of Southeast Asian turtles. Platt said no offense or joke was intended. Quite the contrary."


The scientist who discovered and named the parasite claims that no disrespect to Obama was intended. Yeah right, and if you believe him I have a world famous bridge in San Francisco I want to sell you.

I doubt that Obama wants this honor to be included in his Wikipedia page, but he`s been called much worse than a parasite.

I hope this starts a trend, the winner of the 2016 presidential election shouldn`t have any schools or parks named after him/her, the despicable candidates should have parasites named after them.
