Artist's Impression of the Missing O'Bama Irish Link

The Spoof has learned that genealogists working in Ireland's remotest parts, have discovered a hitherto unknown link between Barack Obama, and the ancient Irish farming clan, O'Bama. Through a contorted chain of events involving potato blight, the Titanic, and the slave triangle, they have confirmed that the O'Bama strain moved from Ireland, and reassembled itself firmly in America via Canada, Africa, the Caribbean, and even Spain.

It seems that Barack Obama has Irish roots after all, not just like Kennedy, Reagan, and Clinton, but better, thus making him eminently suitable to be a President.

Not only that, genealogists using Advance Document Reassembly techniques, whereby they gather dust, and piece together microscopic fragments to recreate original ancient Irish documents, have proved that after the rout of The Spanish Armada by Sir Walter Raleigh, the fragmented fleet escaped by sailing round Britain. Some of them didn't make it home, and settled in Ireland's west coast.

A distant relative to Obama, Juan Pedro Olazabal, staggered ashore in Country Cork, and mated immediately with lace-maker Tessa Kitty O'Shea O'Bama, to produce a whole new strain of the Hispanic-Irish O'Lazabal clan, which due to an inter-clan dispute, split off from the O'Bama clan to establish roots fairly and squarely in African soil. Through a convoluted twist of fate, the Hispanic-Irish O'Lazabal clan was reunited with the Afro-Irish O'Bama clan in the Caribbean before setting sail once again for the new colonies, thus creating this vast diaspora we now know as the United States of America.

The Spoof has learned that this has been validated as one hundred per cent correct by experts everywhere, and is therefore completely true.

Tomorrow, Barack Obama and Freemasonry.
