From The Australian:

ABOUT 200 mugs celebrating Barack Obama’s visit to Australia had to be destroyed because of an embarrassing misspelling of the US President’s name. The mugs were ordered about ten days ago by Secretary of the Department of Parliamentary Services Alan Thompson on the suggestion of some the department’s staff.

The mugs carried pictures of the President’s face with his first name spelt as “Barrack”.

Kind of a funny mis-spelling, considering that “Barracks Communism” was a term coined by Karl Marx. Those Aussies have a hulluva sense of humor!

    Only 200…I wonder how they would have spelled his middle name?
    And, I bet WE paid for them…
