New York -- Mike Huckabee has capitalized lately over reports that he is going back to his Serbian roots and changing his name back to Huckabij (pronounced Huck-A-Bitch). The name was changed by his paternal grandfather to Huckabee which had a much less offensive sound in America.

What seemed to be a brave strategic move by the struggling candidate to garner ethnic vote now seems to be backfiring. Naomi Zot of the National Organization of Angry Women (NOAW) is rallying feminists everywhere over what she deems to be a highly offensive pronunciation. She said, "It's pronounced 'huck a bitch', how is that not offensive? I mean, just think of what it rhymes with."

When it was pointed out to Ms. Zot that this was an ethnic spelling and pronunciation, she was quick to reply, "And I don't give a crap about Serbia. Wasn't it one of them that started World War One?? Or was it Two, I don't remember, anyways, if he wants World War Three, just keep it coming Huckabee."

Mr. Huckabee's campaign was reached for comment, "This is not about women or chauvinism or denigrating women. Look around, you'll see a lot of women working for my campaign. This woman is slurring Serbia and I will not put up with her bigotry."

The National Organization of Angry Women has vowed not to let this issue die, and to enrage women all over America. "This candidate does not know who is is messing with and we're going to take him down. He's got to realize that you don't mess with angry women!"
