Okay, Not So Peachy

Vándorló commented on the post “Barack = Peach” post with:

How does this constitute a ‘prediction’ unless it is in a really pathetic sense? I assume you know both the etymology or Obama’s name as well as that of the name for the peach in Hungarian? And then, some underlying interesting relationship between their origins? No? Then this is just a street sign of house number 1 in Hungary?

For the sake of students of American Culture perhaps they would be interested in a wider debate that Obama name led to: http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/004187.html

Assessment: Could do better!!

Actually, the post was just a bit of tongue in cheek humor sent to me by a Hungarian colleague as a joke. I posted it for humor value. However, the article he sent alongis interesting for those interested in language.

Thank you Vándorló for pointing us in the more academic direction.
