Some Wuxi Expats are Proud of Their Obama Phones

A group of Wuxi Expats gathered at the Pink Kitty Pub on Wuxi’s Nanchang Jie Bar Street told the WCE Blog that they love their Obama Phones.

Obama Phones are free mobile phones given away to supporters or Obama or as an incentive to support Obama’s re-election at President.

While the group of Obama Phone toting Wuxi Expats said their support for Barack Obama was unwavering, their discussion of their favorite apps lead to factional disputes and hints of possible reprisals including early morning knocks on doors.

Ivan "Korba" Fence said his favorite app on the Obama Phone was the games apps. "I really love playing Angry Birds on my Obama Phone. The birds are the heroic revolutionaries seeking to destroy the power of the pigs who represent the implanted bourgeoisie who don’t want to relinquish their ill-gotten privileges " After Fence said this, his comrades Randy "Cocktail" Penn and Juan "Zinoviev" Alou encouraged the rest of the group to applaud which the they did until a bell was rung telling all it was safe to stop.

When Leo Trottier tried to say his favorite Obama Phone App was the "Poolside Harry Moore" App, he was immediately denounced as "Capitalist Running Dog American-loving Vulture" and expelled from the group.

Others, who hadn’t till then told the group what their favorite app was, then told the group they loved the Angry Birds App as well, but were their declarations were greeted with suspicion. "Why didn’t you declare your love of the Angry Birds App sooner!" they were asked by Comrade Penn.

"Alas! There are enemies of the revolution every where!" declared Fence. "Even among those who have Obama Phones! I encourage all members of the Obama Phone Group to seek out reactionaries among their midst and have them liquidated! And then we can let 10,000 flowers bloom! Obama! Obama! Oh! How we love Obama!"
