I read some news from my friend Mona via Facebook today. She\’s on break from University of Cape Town, visiting her family in Malawi where she found a new item on the menu of roadside vendors. It\’s called the \”Obama\”. Apparently it\’s a fist-sized fried sweet bread.
it\’s more like a sweet doughnut [than plain bread]. Traders sell them on the side of the road and shout \”ObamaObamaObama\” to get sales!
Here\’s a pic of an opened-up Obama:
Mona knows as well as you or I that donuts are sweet so this treat is definitely not part of the President\’s health plan!
