Chill, Barack’s in the White House.

Kids today with their hippity-hop and their baggy jeans…

High school students in Albany, NY are using the president’s name as a form of slang. For example, when someone sneezes, say “Barack you.” Or, instead of saying “What’s up?” or “What’s crackin’?”, now those in the know ask “What’s Baracking?”

They do the same thing in Venezela. Like, “Get your Chavez out of my ass.” and “Son of a Chavez” and my favorite “Pull your head out of your Chavez.”
