The Name "Obama" Is Now Slang For "Cool"

The Name "Obama" Is Now Slang For "Cool"

By Robert Paul Reyes


"The sixth edition of "UCLA Slang" is being published this month and it is just `presh!`

Other terms or phrases include `fomo,` or fear of missing out, `schwa` for wow; and `obama,` meaning cool, as in `You so obama.`

`Bromance` means a close platonic friendship. And `bellig` means drunk and belligerent."

Obama is a Rock Star it has been said ad nauseam, but even the biggest rock stars never had this unique honor bestowed on them. "You so Elton John", doesn`t quite have the same ring.

I better stop gushing about Obama, or people might think we have a bromance and that would not be obama.

Republicans considering making a run for the presidency in 2012 should be quaking in their boots. How can you compete against a superstar with a moniker synonymous with cool?

Presh means cute or precious, as in "Sarah Palin is so presh, but she doesn`t stand a snowball`s chance in hell of beating Obama in 2012."
