I just can't seem to say his name right

Could be that my lips are frostbitten from the gnarly Canadian winter or it's a word association thing happening, but every time I want to say Barack Obama, I say Osama bin Laden. I had a long conversation about this with my Mom the other night while we watched AC. I couldn't believe it! She has the same problem. Tongue-tied over a potential President. Might it be genetic? I'm off to Montreal on a business trip so I'll do a random focus group questionnaire with some associates and see if my Mom and I are 'nuts' or in good company. We have made an executive decision though. From now on we are going to call him. 'B.O.' We realize it's the other guy that stinks, but this is how it's gotta be. Out of respect. Oh Oh. Sigh.
