It's All About The "Bo!"

Woooohooo!!! America is very excited. And not because some bad-ass Navy Seals snipers took out three pirates with exactly three bullet shots to the head in a daring rescue of hostage U.S. Captain Richard Phillips after a five-day standoff. Snooze.

But because the first family finally welcomed their first pet, a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog--and boy is he cuuuuute!

The Obama girls have decided to name the new dog Bo because their cousins have a cat named Bo and because first lady Michelle Obama's father was nicknamed Diddley. So, instead of being stuck with some god-awful name Michelle can't stand like "Frank" or "Moose," the first pup will be called "Bo" Diddley, after the original R&B rock 'n roller. Clever girls, Sasha and Malia!

The black and white pup was given to the Obama girls as a gift from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., who owns several Portuguese water dogs himself and knows the joy these beautiful four-legged creatures bring to distinguished families of wealth and taste.

However, because Bo came from a Kennedy and not from a shelter as promised, the Obamas will make a donation to the D.C. Humane Society.

Oh yeah, like that makes up for LYING to the American people.

Bo Diddley Obama, At Your Service
