Diplomatic Ice Breaker
Barack Obama has declared his willingness to sit down and talk face to face with Iranian supreme poobah Ali Husseini Khamenei. How to break the ice ? How about discussing the hassle of having a very inconvenient middle name, and the great advantage of the final i which, for all I know, makes a huge difference for people who want to run countries that hate the late Saddam Hussein.
Ok I cheated on my English spelling of Khameini's middle name which is transliterated as Hosaynî by wikipedia, but you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.
