Obamadelphia PA-- Mayor Michael Nutter officially renamed Philadelphia in a City Hall ceremony yesterday. The nation's sixth largest city is now officially Obamadelphia, named for the nation's first African-American president. The name change takes effect immediately.
Mayor Nutter thought the old name for the city was "too white" and wanted Obamadelphia to reflect "the new realty we live in". The mayor also renamed the Liberty Bell the Obama Bell in a ceremony last week.
"Obamadelphia means City of Our Brother Obama in the Greek language, or something like that." the mayor blurted out.
The name change also extends to the city's sports teams as well. The Phillies are now the Obamies, the Eagles are now the Flying Obamas and the Flyers are now the Flying Obamas On Ice Skates.
"I guess we need to do some more work on the names; everyone will get used to it eventually." laughed the mayor.
The mayor is also hopeful Pennsylvania can get renamed.
"I like the name Michellevania, to honour Michelle Obama." chuckled the easy-going Nutter. "I would love to be the first mayor of Obamadelphia Michellevania, it has a nice ring to it."
