1 Pound of Obama Please

Ever wonder how Egyptian fruit sellers give their political views? No right, why would you... Well I just read that they've been following a tradition of naming their dates after political leaders as a marketing ploy to boost sales. 
Their best dates are named after leaders they respect most. After Obama delivered a promise to improve American ties with Muslims around the world last June, the sellers have named their best dates after him. Also, for just an extra dollar they'll offer you an even better date called "Super Obama!" 

Bush's name was also used during his presidency....  for the worst quality dates... ouch.
