A hot, sunny, summer day in Tibet.

Tibet, the mountainous country "at the top of the world" that has been controlled by China for many years, has decided to change the name of a beloved citizen to honor newly elected U.S. President Barack Obama.

To commememorate the election of the first minority President of the United States, Tibet will change the official name of Yeti, the abominable snowman, to The Obaminable Snowman.

The fierce wilderness creature was most recently spotted in the holiday favorite, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, placing the star on top of a Christmas tree.

When told that Tibet had accorded him the honor, Obama quickly asked how many electoral votes they had given him and if he had appointed any cabinet members from there.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
