Remember when I said, Obama could shed his lizard skin...?

Researchers have named a newly discovered, prehistoric lizard Obamadon gracilis in honour of the 44th US president's toothy grin.

The small, insect-eating lizard was first discovered in eastern Montana, USA in 1974, but a recent re-examination showed the fossil had been wrongly classified as a Leptochamops denticulatus and was in fact a new species, researchers told Reuters on Tuesday.

Obamadon gracilis was one of nine newly discovered species reported on Monday in the proceedings of the National Academy Of Sciences. In naming the new species, scientists from Yale and Harvard universities combined the Latin Obamadon for "Obama's teeth" and gracilis, which means slender.

"The lizard has these very tall, straight teeth and Obama has these tall, straight incisors and a great smile," said Nick Longrich, a palaeontologist at the school in New Haven, Connecticut.

Obama job approval continues to increase:

Of course it is, he just had a dinosaur named after him. Man I can't even mention Obama with out some Patnetzien going full defense.

I just found it ironic, that I have said on several occasions that Obama could have a wardrobe malfunction and his lizard skin suit could fall off, and Iwog would still say... "Obama's job approval continues to increase".

And NOW that's exactly what has happened. It's like I know things man.

It's wonderful that Obama has done such a great job that his detractors are reduced to childish threads about flies and lizard skin.

It's gonna be a long 4 years eh?
