Obama declared Zilla Parishat Chairman of Udupi district

In a rather bizarre and confusing development, Senator Barack Hussein Obama of the United States of America has been declared the chairman of the Udupi district Zilla Parishat, a source reports from Manipal Udupi. According to the authorities, there was some misconfiguration in the central server which managed the American elections, and hence all the votes were diverted to Udupi, where Obama has achieved a landslide victory against Mr Ramesh Shetty, the owner of 2 different Udupi hotels and one ice cream parlour in Downtown Udupi. A local, when questioned on this issue just said enthaddu saavu maaraayre, and went away.

He won't get a lot of change there, Udupi people are stingy. Now, Dakshina Kannada people on the the other hand ...

Are not very thrifty either - personal experience hailing from there and all.

As for the post - mr shetty should have offered free ice creams during his campaign... tch! tch!!

yeah, free ice cream tactic should have been used. I could've helped mr shetty rope in Ideals, Pabbas and Hangyo to fund the 'ice cream thinley, vote korley' campaign.

In unrelated news, all rumours of Obama being related to the household name and deft foe of Haider Ali, Onake Obavva, was denied by the state government. "Thi gavarnament should naat yencarage these baseless allegations against one of the paapular figures in Kannada chaluvali and legend", said Vatal Nagraj, out of turn as usual, while protesting in the middle of the parking lot outside the Vidhana Soudha. "I even have my brathar proteshting near posht aafis" he claimed, through his buckteeth.
