    Obama’s name. As an alternative, citizens may use Supreme Leader, Font of all that is Good, The Most Wizardly of Wizards, or the Great Vanquisher of Republicans.

  18. Burt says:

    …the word ‘unprecedented’ (sounds too much like ‘unpresidented’, which means not adequately supervised.)

    Incandescent bulb

    Since they are inefficient and cause electric bills to soar, the bulb itself is derogatory to the poor.
