Are these "Obama" location-puns unique to this site?

I don’t go to many other bulletin boards.

Is that a dope thing that everyone is making these silly changes to their location fields, or is it widespread?

I have no idea what you are talking about.

There’s nobody like us.

I’m not sure, but it’s childish, and quite possibly Communist.

I believe it started with an MPSIMS thread called something like “I’m changing my location to ‘Obama County’, who’s with me?”, which strangely the hamsters aren’t finding right now.

Edit: Ah, here it is.

Ah, good find.

Damn kids…

Well, the cite was given, so I think I will speak a little to the “wide-spreadedness” of the phenomenon.

I was in Boulder, Colorado for the last two weeks, and if there is a town more didicated to a candidate please let me know! Holy Cow there are a lot of Obama folks out there. I even noticed on the university website where I was there was an entire section on Obama. People are even painting their own Obama logos and digitizing them to put as an avatar. Really cool stuff!

You changed what with the who-now?

It’s silly. There is no ‘Obama County’.

Just an ‘Obama Nation’.
edit: Hey, that really doesn’t sound as good as I thought it would.

There’s everybody hate us.

There’s guess we’ll go eat worms.

:smiley: I’m still laughing.

Colophon, thanks for the link. I’d been wondering what the heck was going on.

I had been wondering too, but I jumped on the Obamawagon.

We hope to see him lead our Nation,
He can surely use our participation,
He might not lead us to salvation,
But it don’t hurt to change location.

I know you’re not being serious, but I am and I agree with the “childish” part of your statement. And, to a lesser extent, the “Communist” aspect of it, but only insofar as I use “Communism” as a label for things I don’t like.

And why would you care? Obama won’t be in charge of your lot until 20… oops, nearly let the Masterplan out of the bag there. :o

I care because I thought I’d joined a message board full of otherwise intelligent, interesting people- not the Barack Obama Mouseketeer Fanclub.

Well, just in case he becomes the next POTUS, keep a list of people with Obama-related location lines, and bait 'em with it in a few years when he’s second-term, the presidency has become stale, people are jaded, he has fucked something up, and they start a Pit thread about him. :smiley:

From your mouth to God’s ear. :wink:

These tend to not be mutually exclusive these days.
